Unless its a Narwhal fight in a phone booth, in which case much win.

 

From a purely cold blooded point of view, its an interesting contrast. Maniac with a knife, 2 killed. Maniac with a shotgun, 2 killed.

 

Spears aren't ideal for close in fighting. You'd be better off with a walrus tusk. I'm sure the Sadiq Khans will ban those too.

Yeah, but are those legal either? 

Probably the ideal EDC item in the UK...

NICS checks only work if the record is there to find. So a blue state is so concerned about gun crime that it all but denies its citizens their 2nd amendment rights but then goes easy on the criminal who then murders others because of it.

 

NJ gave Texas gunman plea deal that wiped out gun felony

 

The gunman who killed two congregants at a Texas church last month had been charged years earlier with a felony gun offense in New Jersey, where prosecutors later downgraded the crime to a low-level misdemeanor that had nothing to do with firearms.

Which gets us into the thing that's clear. They don't care about public safety. They just want more control. If society is a hell hole because of rampant crime, it's no skin off their nose.

And keep in mind that violent criminals are perceived to be the Footsoldiers Of The Revolution™ by the left. Its those working- and middle-class stiffs with ill-gotten gains (meaning not from gov't) that are the demons walking free.

Pensacola shooting was an act of terrorism, attorney general says

By Devlin Barrett and Matt Zapotosky

January 13, 2020 at 10:10 PM EST

Attorney General William P. Barr said Monday that the December shooting that killed three U.S. sailors on a Florida base was an act of terrorism, as officials revealed harrowing new details about the 15-minute rampage and publicly called out Apple Inc. to help them unlock the killer's phones.

At a news conference to discuss the results of the FBI's investigation into the shooting at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Barr said investigators had found evidence that Ahmed Mohammed al-Shamrani, a Royal Saudi Air Force member training at the base, was motivated by "jihadist ideology" and had posted anti-American messages on social media about two hours before his attack.

FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich said that during the attack, Shamrani fired shots at pictures of President Trump and a past U.S. president, and witnesses at the scene said he made statements critical of American military actions overseas. Bowdich said that while Shamrani did not seem to be inspired by one specific terrorist group, he harbored anti-American and anti-Israeli views and felt "violence was necessary". Bowdich said the gunman's social media comments echoed those of Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical Yemeni American cleric tied to the terrorist group al-Qaeda who was killed in a drone strike in 2011.

[...]

In declaring the incident terrorism, Barr noted that on Sept. 11, Shamrani posted a message on social media saying, "The countdown has begun". Over the Thanksgiving weekend, Barr said, Shamrani visited the memorial in New York City to those killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Fifteen of the 19 hijackers who carried out those attacks were Saudis.

Barr said that while it was initially reported that Shamrani arrived to the shooting with others, who filmed it, those accounts turned out to be incorrect. The shooter, he said, arrived alone, though other cadets who happened to be in the area did film the ensuing commotion.

Bowdich said the incident lasted about 15 minutes, with authorities intervening to stop the attack after about eight minutes. Barr singled out sailor Ryan Blackwell, who he said - despite having been shot five times - jumped on top of a fellow service member to prevent her from being shot and helped others get to safety.

The gunman, who used a semiautomatic handgun he purchased legally via an exception that allows non-U.S. citizens with hunting licenses to do so, was fatally shot by a sheriffs deputy.

Bowdich said investigators had not found evidence that the shooter acted with anyone else - though officials said they had uncovered troubling conduct by other Saudi military members training in the United States. Justice Department officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss the diplomatically sensitive matter, said that while officials were confident Shamrani had no U.S.-based co-conspirator, they were still interested in potential interactions he might have had with those in Saudi Arabia.

Barr said investigators had found evidence that 17 Saudis had through social media shared jihadist or anti-American material and 15 - including some of those who had shared anti-American material - were found to have had contact with or possessed child pornography.

Barr said only one of those people had a significant number of images, and U.S. attorneys had reviewed each case and determined such people would not normally be charged with federal crimes. He said 21 cadets from Saudi Arabia had been disenrolled from their training and would be returning to the kingdom later Monday. Justice Department officials said 12 were from the Pensacola base, and nine were from other military bases.

About time they admitted it, and confirmed that the Saudi's are dangerous.

So the Obama era "workplace violence" thing is dead, I assume?

Up to six dead and one arrest reported after a shooting in Rot am See, Baden-Württemberg (pop. 5,300). Reporting is very sketchy at this point, but speaks of a possible relationship drama.

26-year-old man opened fire with a legally-owned automatic pistol at a family gathering at his parent's restaurant, killing three each men and women aged 36 to 69. Two other relatives were severely wounded, one of which in critical condition. The shooter also threatened two kids aged 12 and 14, whose role is currently unclear. Afterwards he called police himself and surrendered to them.
