    Weird...There was a shooting in Gilroy California and I was almost there.....

    Any way, I was supposed to go today but pulled a leg muscle at the last minute and decided to stay home.

    Early reports are really slim on details, so I have no idea what happened, who got shot, what the deal was, etc.

    I talked to a friend who was there. Now I'm always interested in seeing if I can ID a weapon visually (which I'm pretty good at), but he said that what his friends saw were just 'impact hits' and the visual evidence of rounds coming in and people falling to the ground. He didn't even see a firearm or who the shooter was. Yikes. Even if I'm defensively carrying, it would totally suck to be under fire and have no idea where it's coming from.

    The suspect in the mass shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival that killed three and injured 15 has been identified as 19-year-old (insert douchbag's name here). (the scumbag) has been identified as a Gilroy resident, according to KCBS, and was subsequently shot and killed by police.

    At a press briefing Monday morning, Gilroy Police Chief Scot Smithee confirmed the identification and said (the shooter) was armed with an AK-47 style rifle legally purchased in Nevada. Smithee thanked his officers for confronting the gunmen without hesitation despite being "outgunned" with only hand guns

    Wait a minute. California residents CANNOT just go to NEVADA and buy AK-47 style rifles and bring them back to CALIFORNIA. You're stuck buying weapons from inside the STATE where you live unless the weapon is not restricted in your home state or you're an FFL traveling out of state.

    The media is screaming that he LEGALLY bought the AK in Nevada. How is that possible if he's a California resident?

    It's not. The Communist-controlled Media is hoping to slip one over on the people who are ignorant of CA's gun laws....

    Obviously, you're not one they can slip one over on. However, most people wouldn't even know that and will accept, without question, what the Commies are telling them.

    Remember, it's the Dimocrat/Communist/Liberal/Socialist Agenda to lie in order to promote their Agenda.

    I believe at a minimum it would be felony importation of an assault weapon and felony importation of high cap mags plus probably violated federal law and maybe Nevada law to do it. But you think anyone willing to commit MURDER cares about any of that.

    A kid near my kids age died and its really sad. I hope they are spending some resources on studying the psychology behind this kind of thing. That is the root of it not more bs gun control laws.

    Heard over the radio that the 19 year old shooter cut through a fence to get into the event since the main entry was into a gun free zone. The report said he used an SKS.

    Again, the above was heard a few minutes ago on the local radio so I have not had a chance to verify.

    Obviously with all the anti self protection laws and the firearm laws in commiefornia, murder still happens. And yet they thing gun laws will make people realize that murder is also illegal.

    From what I heard the shooter was legally residing in Nevada at the time he purchased the firearm.

    Gilroy Shooter Identified as Iranian-American With Islamic Imagery on Instagram
    The shooter who killed three people and wounded at least 11 more has been identified as Santino Willian Legan, a described Iranian American.

    Legan had an Instagram account on which he shared only three photos. One of the photos depicted Ali Asghar Vahabzadeh, Legan’s maternal grandfather.

    Gotta love the "Lying news media" as they continue to complain that he used "an AK-47 type weapon". They just can't say the three letters S-K-S.
