    Attorneys who filed one of the first lawsuits after the Oct. 1 mass shooting that killed 58 concert-goers and left hundreds injured on the Las Vegas Strip filed four new negligence cases Monday on behalf of more than 450 victims. This time, however, Houston-based lawyers Chad Pinkerton and Mo Aziz filed the cases in Los Angeles against companies including MGM Resorts International, the corporate owner of both the Mandalay Bay resort and the Route 91 Harvest Festival concert venue. Pinkerton said the intent was to get the cases before a jury less likely to be influenced by the size and...

    Las Vegas has suffered in the wake of the deadly shooting from the Mandalay Bay. In the eight weeks before a gunman (or gunmen) killed 58 innocent people and injured 546 more, air bookings to Vegas were already down 7% for domestic flights and 2% for international flights on a year over year basis. But the truth has suffered the most in the aftermath of this shattering calamity. After the shootings, things naturally got even worse. In the three weeks after the mysterious concert shooting, domestic bookings for flights were down 21% and down 16% for international flights in, according...

    The director of women's and gender studies at a Pennsylvania university claimed "toxic masculinity" is "killing everyone" and blamed the phenomenon for the Texas church shooting. Professor Colleen Clemens at Kutztown University in Berks County, Pa. tweeted that "Toxic Masculinity is killing everyone - repeat - toxic masculinity is killing everyone - repeat." Tucker Carlson said he asked Clemens to come on his program to discuss her accusations, but that the woman replied that she "feared for her safety."
  • Mass Shooting in California: The Circus Begins

    Yesterday another mass shooting occurred; this time in California. The shooter killed four people and injured at least ten; he was shot and killed by police responding. It is unfortunate that an almost scripted response will begin on each side, neither useful, both distracting, and ultimately, both used to fuel hatred of the political opponents. Here’s how it will go down. The leftists media will make a huge issue about the shooters race (white guy for those not following the news), and proceed to conflate this with a series of assumptions.

    CORNING, Calif. - Witnesses tell a chilling account of two gunman who opened fire at Rancho Tehama Elementary School near Corning Tuesday morning.

He said the series of shots came through the classroom windows, hitting one student. Ferreria said a young...

    What kind of vermin mocks prayer and politicizes human tragedy after a dark-hearted creep who reportedly bought dogs online and used them for target practice walks into a church and kills 26 innocent people?Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, for one, and leftists at large. Just after the Sutherland Springs, Texas shooting, Warren tweeted: “Thoughts and prayers are not enough, GOP.

    The case of Rolando Martinez seems like an ideal scenario that gun control advocates would use to push their agenda. A crazed man with an “AR-style” rifle allegedly terrorized over a dozen people in Austin, Texas, shooting at several and hitting four. One of the victims, a 7 year-old-girl, is in critical condition.

    An Everett Police detective wrote in probable cause papers that the suspect who shot an Everett man twice in the head last month was “emotionless and showed that she was cold and calculating. In the end she said that she shot (the victim) two times in the head because he was preforming oral sex wrong and she did not know how to tell him that.”

    Within hours of the slaughter of 26 people at the church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, Democrats were calling for expanded background checks to cover the private transfers of guns. If they had waited a few hours, they would have learned that such a law wouldn't have stopped the attack in Texas. Nor would it have stopped any of the other mass public shootings since at least 2000.

    She told her son that the shooter paced back and forth, firing into the pews and shooting at cellphones anytime someone tried to call police. He shot at her phone at least three times. “With every shot, she was crying,” he said of the woman. “She was just staring at my mom while she tried to comfort her.” As he fired rounds into the woman, Farida Brown held her hand, telling her she was heading to heaven. At that moment, she heard a shot fired from a different man, at the front door. The other man was Stephen Willeford, who...

    On the morning of Sunday, Nov. 5, Devin Patrick Kelley opened fire on the congregants of First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. The attack killed 26 people, including a pregnant woman and a number of children. A man living nearby heard the shots, grabbed his own firearm, and pursued Kelley. Kelley was found dead in his truck 8 miles away from the scene, and it is not clear whether he or his pursuer fired the fatal shot. As with every highly publicized mass casualty shooting, the news was followed by immediate calls for legislators to “do something.” Too often,...

    A Democratic senator responded to the Sunday mass shooting at a Texas church by suggesting the U.S. adopt a law that is already on the books. Hawaii Sen. Brian Schatz (D.) shared an excerpt of a New York Times story detailing how, while in the military, the shooter was convicted of assaulting his wife and infant step-son. "A simple idea: Anyone convicted of domestic abuse should see their rights under the 2nd Amendment severely curtailed," Schatz tweeted on Monday. In fact, federal law already prohibits domestic abusers from purchasing or owning guns.

    President Trump was asked on Monday during a presser whether better (as in stricter) gun control laws could have prevented the Texas Church massacre. The POTUS proved once again he’s awake and dropped a truth bomb: “Mental health is your problem here. This isn’t a guns situation. This is a mental health problem at the highest level. It’s a very, very sad event.” Truer words have never been spoken by a standing President. As Donald Trump described the murderer as a very deranged individual during a joint press conference in Japan on Monday, we already know quite a few things...
