Schools put on lockout due to «credible threat»
Columbine High School, more than 20 other schools in Jefferson County and one school in Denver have been placed on lockout Tuesday afternoon after sheriff’s officials said they were investigating “what appears to be a credible threat possibly involving the schools.”What it doesn't say, though, is what has caused the lockout, what they call the credible threat. Was there a letter sent to the sheriff, or any suspicious activity next to these schools? Some mysterious calls with a distorted voice, alarming the school directors? I don't know, and it doesn't say anything about it in the article.
All Jeffco schools will release students on schedule with increased security staff on site, the district said in a tweet. All after-school activities will go on as scheduled, except for at Columbine High School, where all after-school activities have been canceled.
The original article: The Greeley Tribune
Luckily, they also linked the full article that was published in the Denver Post, so that we will finally read what caused the lockout:
Sol Pais, 18, who traveled to Colorado from Miami, was believed to be in the Denver-Littleton area after purchasing a pump-action shotgun as well as ammunition after leaving Denver International Airport, said Dean Phillips, special agent in charge of the Denver FBI office, during a Tuesday night news conference.And I always thought that wielding guns was a Constitutional right in the US. Why would they now think that someone who bought a gun and travelled to Columbine High School could cause a threat to safety? Maybe because guns are dangerous in general?
Authorities confirmed it was her presence that triggered lockouts — outer doors are bolted, but classes continue as normal — first at Columbine High School and more than 20 other Jefferson County institutions, then dozens of other schools across the wider metro area.That's strange. I haven't heard of lockouts due to people next to certain places wielding guns. Why at schools?
But seriously: They say that the carriage of guns was a Constitutional right, in terms of self-defense and so on and so forth. This also means that wielding them should not lead to a public outrage. Because then, you spread paranoia everywhere, and this cannot be what the founding fathers saw as utmost freedom.
The district, on Twitter, said all activities and athletics are also canceled. Employees were told not to report for work. A short time later, the Douglas County School District also announced that it will be closed on Wednesday and that “no employees are to report.”

Pittsburgh passes bill to ban assault-style rifles after synagogue shooting
“There was a lot of opposition,” Mayor Peduto said. “But more people in the community quietly showed their support.”This is the most critical reference to the silent majority I have ever seen, it's also the most assailable I have ever seen. I hope he knows what he is doing and what kind of backlash he is soon going to experience. As much as I approve of his decision, he should take care of himself too.
The opposition is against restricting military-assault weapons, banning most uses of high-capacity magazines and allowing the temporary seizure of guns from people who are determined to be a danger to themselves or others.
The legislation was introduced last year after the mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill. Eleven people were killed when a gunman opened fire during services, and seven others were wounded.

Guy no-one seems to know is running for president, he announced on Late Night Show
Bona note: His name is Eric Salwell
The 38-year-old former prosecutor was first elected to represent California’s 15th Congressional District, covering parts of San Francisco, in 2012, yada yada yada. You know how to read Wikipedia as well as I do. The likelihood Swalwell sticks around long enough that you—or anyone—gets a chance to vote for him for president is pretty slim. The most compelling thing about Swalwell’s hours-old candidacy is that he’s running with a focus on gun control.And yes, there are 18 people on the Democratic side running for president. No, the boat is not full yet, but I guess we are soon going to capsize because people will have lost all oversight of the field of runners.

Despite judges Clarence Thomas' and Neil Gorsuch's dissent, SC won't refuse prohibition of bump stocks
In November 2018, the Drumpf administration announced that it would issue a new regulation interpreting a federal machine gun ban to encompass bump stocks. The rule required owners of these devices to surrender or destroy them. No bump stocks would be grandfathered in, and anyone who continued to own the device after March 26, 2019, would be committing a federal felony.
If the government is correct, bump stocks can be banned, because the shooter need only pull the trigger once to fire multiple rounds. Applying Chevron deference, the D.C. Circuit found that the government’s interpretation is perfectly reasonable and thus upheld the new rule.
_Regardless of the dissenters’ views, it’s apparent that there is little appetite by a majority of the court to protect a device that aided a recent, horrific, and notorious massacre. Chief Justice John Roberts, Justice Samuel Alito, and Justice Brett Kavanaugh do not seem eager to use this case to bolster the Second Amendment or curtail Chevron deference. And so hundreds of thousands of gun owners will now need to dispose of their bump stocks—or become federal criminals. _

Pittsburgh City Council approves of stricter gun control measures after shooting at Tree Of Life Synagogue
The legislation will place restrictions on military-style assault weapons like the AR-15 rifle that authorities say was used in the Oct. 27 rampage at Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill, which killed 11 people and wounded seven.
It also bans most uses of armor-piercing ammunition and high-capacity magazines, and allows the temporary seizure of guns from people who are determined to be a danger to themselves or others.
However, Second Amendment activists have made it known that they will challenge the legislation in court, pointing out that state law doesn’t allow municipalities to regulate firearms. The legislation was watered down last week in an effort to make it more likely to survive a court challenge.

19-year old dies for having knocked at the wrong door while being black
"He pleaded for his life. He was like, 'Hold on, I am sorry, I am sorry' and the dude shot him," a witness said.You don't protect your family when you behave like a mad paranoid and shoot down innocents. He was not involved in his truck theft, he didn't do anything to him. He even cried that he was sorry, there was no need to shoot him down. But as it seems, gunning down others when feeling offended must be a usual action in the US, land of the free and of a party that thinks that more guns will create more safety. This is some fucked-up shit.
"He has five kids, he was literally protecting his family. His truck was stolen earlier this week. Right now, that's all they're trying to do is protect their family," Makayla Johnson said.

New Zealand buyback of guns could cost millions
"It's better to prepare for the worst and think of the upper limit. It could cost – and this is an extravagant statement but it may well be true – it could cost up to $300 million to set what is wrong, right."Damn, this is a costy occupation, I must admit. We'd better outsource it on the vendors, to save some of the tax money. 😉
He said the Port Arthur massacre in Australia in 1996 "should have been a signal to us. We didn't act then, either".
At the moment, it is unknown how many firearms there are in New Zealand but the number is estimated to range between 1.2 million and 1.5 million.

Didgeridoo mistaken for rifle, train station locked down
Police said a passenger reported busker Will Austin behaving suspiciously on a train as he performed breathing exercises in preparation for playing his didgeridoo, a polished-wood indigenous wind instrument which he carried in a bag mistakenly described to police as a rifle case.Paranoia, very much?
Train passenger Sarsha Vadocz said she was unconcerned at first when the train stopped for five minutes at the station. Then someone yelled there was a gunman on the train and passengers dived to the floor.

So as many of you may know, this is an election year here in Canada. In October we again go to the polls, and Trudeau is suffering his lowest popularity ever. At least domestically. The whole SNC-Lavalin corruption scandal is mostly out of the news cycle now but is still fresh in people's minds. Honestly I don't even think most Canadians fully understand what exactly it was all about, but I noticed it didn't stop them from using it as a jump off point to express their contempt for him. (Probably there are some other more basic reasons Canadians dislike him, but we won't get into that here, the point is, if the election were to happen today, The Liberal Party would lose and Trudeau would be out.)
The Trudeau Liberals are still enjoying a majority government (for now,) and one of the things they are using it for is to ram through some new restrictions on legal gun owners. (Bill C-71.) Since last year's Danforth shooting in Toronto, they are even talking about a ban on handguns, (something which of course would only affect law abiding legal owners. (It's worth noting that a handgun ban wouldn't have prevented the Danforth shooting since Faisal Hussain had acquired the gun from his brother who was a gang member. The gun used was never legal or registered in the first place. The vast majority of gun crime in Canada is done with unregistered firearms that were smuggled across the border. A legalist gun ban would have had no effect on this.))
Anyway, some of my gun owning friends are thinking that Trudeau might use the issue of gun violence and gun control legislation, and make it a national issue as a way to distract from his own sinking popularity. This agenda is already being pushed, but currently they're not making such a big stink about it, (of course this would cost them the rural voters...)
Now everyone is noticing what when down in New Zealand at that mosque and how their Prime Minister not only used it as a massive virtue signaling opportunity, but also managed to quickly ram through some pretty major gun-control legislation. I'm sure the Trudeau Liberals noticed this and maybe even got some ideas. I mean Trudeau's carbon tax is unpopular, and in France I'm sure he noticed their fuel tax really didn't work out too good... but this mosque shooting thing really worked good for NZ PM Jacinda Ardern. The Liberal Party are smart enough to notice what works, especially now that they're desperate.
So here's where my prediction comes in. (I think you probably know where I'm going with this by now.) We know that Trudeau is well connected to the deep state, he's an asset (not unlike Obama.) My worry here is that sometime this year, before the October election, there may be a false flag shooting event in Canada. The target could be a school, a mall, a mosque or whatever, what's more important is that the patsy will be a white male who's politically right-wing. The narrative will be something the Trudeau Liberals can use against their opposition (The Conservative Party,) they'll use it to claim they were right all along about needing more gun control, that conservatives are holding this back and threatening public safety, and of course there will be plenty of condemnations and virtue signaling by smug Liberals. The resulting media circus would probably be enough to get Trudeau reelected.
Of course, I hope my prediction turns out to be wrong, I would be happy to be proven wrong here... but just in case, I wanted to put this out there. Not to be able to say "I told you so" but to put the idea out there ahead of time so that if they do decide to try something like this, then there is at least a chance that people will see it for what it is and hopefully expose it before it's too late.
Once they take your rights, they never give them back... and it seems these days people around the world are losing rights faster than ever before. :o

Senate discusses stricter gun control in red flag cases
Red flag laws—also called extreme risk protection orders—allow law enforcement or civilians to petition a judge to have firearms removed from the possession of someone who they believe is at risk of harming themselves or others. The individual has the opportunity to protest the order. If it’s enacted, however, they may not purchase or posses a firearm for a minimum of 180 days.You're no longer innocent when you possess a gun you are able to use. From this moment on, you are suspicious.
Those in favor of red flag laws state the regulation can prevent violence, particularly suicides. Those in opposition argue that unless the law addresses the value of the second amendment and provides for due process, it can be used to disarm innocent people.
Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) co-sponsored legislation with Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) proposing federal red flag laws after the 2018 Parkland school shooting, but it was unsuccessful. Sen. Marco Rubio re-introduced bipartisan legislation on red flag laws earlier this year, and the White House as shown support for such preventative laws as well.

Father to girl shot in Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting committed suicide
A neuropharmacologist, Richman co-founded the Avielle Foundation after his first-grade daughter, Avielle Richman, died in the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. The 6-year-old was among the 20 first-grade students and six administrators killed.
“The death appears to be a suicide but police will not disclose the method or any other details of the death, only to state the death does not appear suspicious.”
In a 2017 interview with NPR, Richman talked about the emptiness the couple felt after they lost their only child. “It was like a ghost limb syndrome, you know, where you keep thinking ‘Where’s Avielle? Do we need to pick her up?’” he said. “And every day you’d have this [realization]that I don’t have a child, and I don’t have to parent. That was just brutal.”

Political Adviser to One Nation party James Ashby exposed to have received 20 mn Dollars from NRA to lower AUS gun laws
Before the Al Jazeera documentary was published, Mr Ashby was best known for the “Ashbygate” political scandal involving federal parliament’s former speaker of the house, Peter Slipper.
“To allow these proceedings to remain in the court would bring the administration of justice into disrepute among right-thinking people and would be manifestly unfair to Mr Slipper,” Justice Rares said in his judgment.
Last month, Mr Ashby was involved in a physical altercation with United Australia Party Brian Burston, after Mr Burston made a sexual harassment claim against Pauline Hanson.

Ban on military rifles executed in New Zealand, subsequent to Christchurch mosque shooting
Jacinda Ardern said the ban goes into effect immediately and would be followed by legislation next month. New Zealand's citizens should make arrangements to turn in weapons banned under the new laws, Ardern told the nation in a live television announcement.
She said an amnesty will be put in place for weapons to be handed in by citizens. The New Zealand cabinet will also implement a buyback plan for banned weapons, and there will be "tightly regulated" exemptions for some owners such as hunters and farmers.
About 1.5 million firearms are owned – legally and illegally – by civilians in New Zealand, according to police data tracked by GunPolicy.org, a website run in conjunction with the University of Sydney. This equates to about 30 firearms per 100 people. In the United States, the rate is approximately 120 firearms per 100 people, according to the site.

White supremascist Brenton Tarrant described mentalls ound by attorney
"The way he presented was rational and someone who was not suffering any mental disability. That's how he appeared. He seemed to understand what was going on," he said.
New Zealand, a country of only five million people, has an estimated 1.5 million firearms. The minimum age for a gun license is 16, and 18 to own a semi-automatic weapon.
"This man wrote in his manifesto that the purpose of using a firearm was to divide us," Tipple said. "If we allow him to make changes in our ideology, in our behaviour, he's won."

Lawsuit by bereaved victims of Sandy Hook shooting allowed to proceed
The court's narrow decision, overturning a lower court judge, rules that Remington can be sued over its marketing practices under a Connecticut state law, despite protections offered to gun manufacturers by federal law. The ruling sends the case back to the lower court.
"What I'm looking to find out in this whole process, essentially, is what went on inside Remington," said Bill Sherlach, whose wife Mary was the school psychologist shot and killed at Sandy Hook Elementary. "Let's see the internal documents, the internal emails, as to what the charges were to their marketing and ad execs."
Lawyers for the gunmaker argued that there was no way for Remington to assess the shooter, and therefore no way they could have known what the gun would be used for.

AOC shoots back at NRA's «thoughts & prayers» after Christchurch shooting
“At 1st I thought of saying, 'Imagine being told your house of faith isn’t safe anymore.' But I couldn’t say ‘imagine,’” the lawmaker wrote, citing the deadly shootings at a Charleston, S.C., church, a Pittsburgh synagogue and a Sutherland Springs, Texas, church.
“Isolation, dehumanizing stereotypes, hysterical conspiracy theories & hatred ultimately lead to the anarchy of violence,” she wrote on Twitter. “We cannot stand for it.”
