Some lunatic just handed Obama a "good crisis not to be wasted"...

Chucky Schumer and Nancy Pe-Lousy are probably salivating as we speak.

fukkin douchebag, why can there NEVER seem to be a person who is legally CCW-ing be in the area and take ONE of these shits out!?!?!? Imagine if there were 4 incidents FOILED by a person carrying and taking out the perp.... of course they would probably be charged with murder for saving the lives of others seeing how the judicial system is or they may come under fire from cops.....but you know what they say ..when seconds count the cops are minutes-or hours- away....

I still say these guys are gun control advocate sleeper agents... they get turned on,go kill people, media grabs it the anti yell, law passed and 'they' get their way and there you have it..... seems to always happen 'tooo convieniently on timing...... yes i am suspicious.......

Unlikely much will happen as a result of this nut case. It's ironic though
that most of this nonsense happens in places with the most Libtards.

But around 3:30 p.m. today, Pavlenko said she heard a loud sound and then another and, as she realized she was hearing gunshots, the count went past five and six. She looked up from the Fabulicious Cupcakes kiosk and her eyes caught the figure walking slowly across the open area near Macy's. The figure, wearing a white mask, raised his arm and shot at a woman nearby as the mall's empty hallways echoed with screams. Pavlenko watched the woman fall.

Then, she said, the figure calmly pointed the gun in her direction and fired.

"He looked straight at me, and he aimed but he missed," said Pavlenko, who said she froze. She couldn't bend down. She couldn't move. "I thought he was going to come into the food court, but he kept going straight, toward J.C. Penney.

"He kept on shooting, and he kept on walking," she said. "He wasn't running. He was walking so slow. He dropped the thing he used to load bullets, and he just slowly picked it up and put back in again."

Interesting moment at the 8:30pm press conference. When they asked the Sgt. if the perp was alive when police found him, he said: "No officer fired their weapon." Then the next question was: "What about customers? Did a customer shoot him?" The Sgt. got a deer in the headlights look and then stammered out an: "I can't speak to that."

I didn't have the impression that any civilians engaged the perp, but I suppose it is possible. Will be interesting over the next few days as information starts to go public.

This is about ten minutes from the homes of several FAL Files members here in Oregon. I've been listening to the Clackamas county scanner this evening.

What is amazing to me is that so many people's responses were just to hunker together and cry, they don't even have the sense to run.

It is like Fight or Flight has been bred out of US Mall Patrons.

According to the local news, a lot of people ran for it.
Some locked themselves into small retail outlets.

A trip to Wal Mart (for at least the last 10-15 years) is like watching the pre-clear and after discovery mall scenes from the original Dawn of The Dead.

All the malls around here have large "No Weapons Allowed" signs at all the entrances.

Sad that this could have been prevented with a couple of inexpensive signs.

Yes a lot did, but from the news reports I read a lot clumped together, hunkered down and cried.

Inside Sears, some customers burst into tears as word spread of the shooter going store to store, Christina Fisher told KOIN.

"We were told to stand in a group by the top of the escalators and stay away from the windows out of the aisle. ... We stood there for probably a good 20 minutes," she said. "All of the sudden, somebody came through with a radio, yelling 'get down!'"

.......

A group of customers inside Sears watched television news reports about the shooting inside the store's entertainment center, witness Tylor Pedersen told CNN affiliate KGW.

There was a case about 5 years ago in Colorado Springs, CO. Perp shot several people outside a church. When he entered the church, a woman inside pulled a gun and shot him. Did not kill him, but did stop him. The perp proceeded to commit suicide to save the taxpayers money. I would guess the perp thought there would be nobody but sheep in a church. Surprise. Colorado Springs is a big gun community with a friendly to guns sheriff. Wrong assumption on his part.

Never hear this one mentioned when the commie media starts ranting and raving about mass shootings. Probably because he was stopped cold and countless lives were saved.

Too bad some of those outside the church died.

There are plenty that think that way.

The POS lib that owns the grocery store in the next town put up no guns signs last year when Iowa passed right to carry (had permits,but they were at the dicretion of the sheriff,the law made them shall issue).I have had numerous discussions with him and he always comes back to "the safety of the customers".

The front door to my shop has one of the JPFO firearms welcome signs.

First thing that caught my attention was the gun jammed and this is the second shooting this has happened at. Amazing that all the "improvements" that have gone into that weapon and it still has the initial problem troops complained about when it was first fielded.

Good side of this is that the perp took care of the trial problem himself.

One day one of these kooks is going to use an AK, then we are really going to have a non-jamming massacre.

Those guys weren't hunting people.They were pretty stupid and just hung around blasting.


Lucky so far these shooters have been weapon stupid-you get a couple well trained guys in a mall and you would have a very large body count.Something like the Mumbai attack.


Thankfully the borders are secure and there is no way we have any terrorists here.......

Their goal was money not killing people.
And they weren't shooting point blank.

Imagine if it was their goal and they went into a mall double armored up.

Don't recall their AKs jamming either.

I wish someone in law enforcement in the area would do a thorough investigation of this douche bag. May find something out of someone who mentally manipulated the guy. He was after all using a "stolen" weapon.

I was talking with a friend of mine (former Recon Marine) this afternoon about this shooting and we both wondered the same thing. Were there no men in the mall? How about a bull dyke close by? Even with no one armed, when nimrod's weapon jammed, tackle him and take him out! People have to quit drinking the koolaid and being sheep. I have been drilling this into my grandkids in case, God forbid, they ever have a shooter at school. L/E won't come in until the shooting stops. Don't huddle and cry and scream with the rest, waiting to be shot. Maybe they will remember.

While I can't speak for any particular agency, modern active shooter potocol dictates immediate officer engagement, even if there is no back up. While the policr may ne mostly douches, they now get this right...

Exactly. And as for protocol, the Virginia Tech shooting stands out in my mind. On the news you could hear gunshots in the building in the background as you watched a lard-assed LEO with an AR-15 run across the parking lot to take cover with other police. Only after no shots were heard for several minutes was the order given to go inside. The shooter had killed himself along with I forget how many others. By then, all that needs to be done are incident reports written and next-of-kin notified.

Yeah, I saw that somewhere, too.

Also had a bud just call me to let me know that the insufferable British prick Piers Morgan is on TV somewhere, running that bullshit about the 2nd AMT being intended for muskets, not autoloading rifles.

I woulda tuned in, but I didn't wanna raise his viewership by 25%.

I have been drilling this into my grandkids in case, God forbid, they ever have a shooter at school. L/E won't come in until the shooting stops. Don't huddle and cry and scream with the rest, waiting to be shot. Maybe they will remember.

Most malls post the no weapons signs. Most ccw folks follow the law. Ar-15 jammed ? Ain't that an old story.

There was one report of a man that went up the escalator toward the shooting, planning to take out the shooter.

There is a lot of reporting of " jamming ".

The presumption that reporters know a jam from a reload is a stretch.


Most don't know jam from jelly.

Well , I was 100% wrong and back in 2005 I had to travel 1,000 miles to tell him face to face that I was dead wrong..... Oh yeah it's indeed coming !

Anyone here who couldn't do this kind of damage with a bolt or lever gun within a couple minutes on unarmed targets who aren't shooting back needs to break out their white cane, not that anyone has that inclination. Semi automatic "assault rifles" have nothing to do with it.
