I noticed the exact same thing. All of my liberal and Democrat friends are completely silent on this. Particularly the ones from California. Given the all the draconian laws they passed to ban firearms recently, I'm not surprised.

I just hope the right wing continues to grow as a result of these attacks and doesn't become complacent.

I guess what really matters is all those Pokemon waiting to be caught at the Nice crime scene.

Even when that happens, we are told how that isnt real islam, its the religion of peace, and they dont represent all muslims. And like you said, they will quickly turn it into a gun control issue.

Yup. It's just going to be more of the same. Unfortunately our only hope is the growing right wing.

I don't get it either. I figure I'm gonna die anyway so why not at least try to do something to stop it rather than being a sheep & waiting for my turn to die. For example one shooter with a significant number of victims ... Rather than hide & wait to be shot why not go after the shooter en masse? Yeah I might get shot but maybe I'm the one who shoots him or grabs the gun so he doesn't shoot anybody else. If enough people think this way & rush the shooter at the same time then pile on lives could be saved.

I guess my faith comes into play. If it's my time then it's my time & y'all can laugh at me because you don't agree or have different beliefs but I have faith I know where I'm going after death & it's not the end so no I would not take it standing still like a sheep.

Plus I'm stubborn. You want to kill me then I'm not making it easy for you. You're gonna have to work hard for it.

I may be the first one dead but will go out fighting.

People have said that's bold talk because you don't know how you're going to react until your life is on the line. I've been in a situation once where that was the case (a knife to my throat) and I fought and since I'm writing this post I won. Have some scars but I won.

I know I will get laughed at by some for this post but that's okay.

I'm alive so I won!

Great post. Fight or Flight. Most choose flight apparently as they arent brought up to fight for themeselves.
An Uncle of mine taught me that if you rush a person, they more than likely will freeze up, because its unexpected. I used this tactic in one class years ago for anti terrorism hostage training. It worked great, even though I was "dead", so was he..Paint balls everywhere....

This is the problem with the liberal mindset, its how they mange the dignity of the sheep. "You don't need a gun.." we will protect you." Sleep and eat where we say, we will watch over you..." You cannot possibly care for yourself......

Then when the Hun strikes, divert the blame to an inanimate object.. "We tried to ban guns but they wouldn't let us..."

Remember, armed people are proud people and proud people cannot be herded. It erodes the very core of the liberal mentality.

IIRC, that is almost how the take down on the French train happened.
The way I remember it the young Air Force Medic rushed the guy with the AK and his buddies followed. AF guy took knife wounds, buddies subdued the shooter.

Started with one person acting.

It is also much harder to force an armed populace into train cars, and gas chambers. Bit by bit, extermination always follows confiscation. This, I believe, is what we really need firearms for. Not hunting and criminals, although those items are covered in the side benifits.

The difference between a subject and a citizen is that a citizen is armed and has responsibility for himself.

To recycle something I just read on the 2nd Amendment thread, armed citizens are a lot harder to round up in rail cars.

More information about the guy who counterattacked the shithead, albeit somewhat unsuccessfully. There was another who jammed a scooter under the truck in an attempt to slow/stop the vehicle. Maybe KidA's French cousin. S/F....Ken M

Oh look!

The media was pushing the "not a Muslim terrorist but a disturbed self-radicalized individual that went off the rails when his gf left him" narrative really hard.

Now the French gov just released a statement saying that they have arrested six other individuals that were directly involved in the planning and execution of the attack. There are also strong indicators that they had started planning more than a year ago (and might initially had a date last year planned).

I wonder how they will spin these informations to fit their bs.

The goat was white, so this is all due to racism.

Busses Torched in Paris Suburb

For the second time in 2 weeks, a group of people in a majority migrant area has put up an illegal roadblock, forced everyone off the bus and set it ablaze.

Any day now the French will figure it out.
