Gunman opens fire at Oregon College in mass killing

A gunman opened fire at a community college in southern Oregon on Thursday, killing 13 people and wounding some 20 others before he was shot to death by police, state and county officials said, in the latest mass killing to rock a U.S. school.

There were conflicting reports on the number of dead and wounded in the shooting rampage at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, which began shortly after 10:30 a.m. local time (1730 GMT).

The state’s attorney general, Ellen Rosenblum, told the local NBC affiliate that 13 people had been slain, 20 wounded and the shooter was killed. Rosenblum’s office did not return calls seeking comment.

Governor Kate Brown said the suspect was a 20-year-old man but he was not identified further by authorities. CNN reported that four guns belonging to the shooter were recovered from the scene. SOURCE

First and foremost I want to express my most sincere condolences to the families of the dead and wounded. I am truly sorry for your loss.

Second; to ALL of the anti-gun people that are screaming for more gun control and the seizure of guns; you can all, individually or in a great big collective party: GO SCREW YOURSELVES. That too is said in all sincerity.

I don’t know what type of weapons were used in this act of violence, but there is one thing that is 100% guaranteed, the GUNS did NOT do this crime, the shooter did this crime, he just chose to use guns as his tools of choice.

Yes, I am angry, incredibly angry, the bodies of the dead weren’t even cold and the White House is calling for tougher gun laws in wake of Oregon shooting. Yes indeed, Barack Hussein Obama had to get on the nightly news and launch into HIS screed about *tougher gun laws*.

Does this no-good piece of Communistic Kenyan excrement really believe that more or tougher gun laws will, or even could stop things like this from happening?

Oregon Tightened Gun-Buying Restrictions in Weeks Before Shooting

Thursday’s mass shooting on a college campus in Oregon came just weeks after the state recently tightened restrictions on gun purchases.

A law that went into effect on Aug. 9 requires background checks for transactions made between individuals and online. Previously, checks were mandatory only for people seeking to buy a gun from a federally licensed dealer — at a gun store or gun show.

It is not clear where or when the shooter in Thursday’s attack obtained his weapon nor whether the new law would have had any impact.

Gun-control advocates said the new measure would prevent criminals and the mentally ill from buying guns.

Left unclear, however, was how the expanded checks would be enforced. SOURCE

Pay VERY close attention to that last line: “Left unclear, however, was how the expanded checks would be enforced.”

All the anti-gun people want tighter restrictions, tougher laws or out and out confiscation of ALL guns in America, but they have no concept of the WAR that would take place should such ever be attempted.

Let me say this in closing; you can institute ALL the new gun laws you like, you can enact tougher laws, more restrictions, anything you can think of in your lame effort to stop individual acts of violence such as this but until you address the root cause of this violence, insanity, you are wasting time and effort because there is nothing going to make gun violence go away until ALL of the insane people, the criminals and other random ne’er do wells can no longer lay hands on a gun of any fashion.

    You don’t seem to pick very good times for taking time off. Just because things are quiet doesn’t mean it’s safe to shut down for a while. It just means the Left is thinking up it’s next series of moves.

    I must say, though, that this sure takes attention off of someone’s inability to stand strong on the world stage, what with getting spanked by Putin …

    Back to your point - as long as it is politically incorrect to call someone insane or crazy, then there will not be enough patients in the asylums, as far as I am concerned. There are too many crazies wandering around loose.

    • Mike Flynn says:

      I agree with Cary, we allow people who used to be in asylums to wander the streets. Obama is on now commenting that places in U.S. That have the least gun deaths are the ones that have the strictest gun laws…ahhh, Obama used to work in Chicago, in past few years there have been over 6000 shooting!

    • TexasFred says:

      Kinda funny how that works isn’t it? Every time this no-good piece of Communistic Kenyan excrement gets his ass in a sling there’s a mass shooting and he, as well as the Dems and all of the evil little anti-gun bastards have something to use to deflected the wave of crap from Obama…

      • BobF says:

        Same thing with Bill Clinton. Every time he got in a scandal, we would have a deployment of troops. I was in a KC-135 air refueling outfit and troops don’t go anywhere until we have the air-bridge in established. Whenever Clinton scandals broke on the news, we would bring our mobility bags to work because we knew we were deploying…never failed.

      Unfortunately, Reagan brought the issue of shutting down the bulk of mental hospitals in California to the forefront; he began diverting funding. The trend continued because Leftists believed each “sanitarium” was a cesspool of horror. The bottom line is that when you remove these institutions, the mentally defective live on the streets, commit crimes, and stay with their parents or isolate themselves, often refusing to take medications or remaining entirely unprescribed. Left to themselves, absent firearms, they would resort to vehicles to kill others, clubs, rocks, knives, machetes, crossbows, garrotes, acids and the like. Because they are mentally defective.

      Many of these people are only treated in jails and prisons because they have already offended. As there was little available for them on the street. And trust me, mental treatment in jail is barely plugging a huge hole in the hull. The ship is still sinking.

      Some of these people will never be “brought back.” Some of these people are not even remotely treatable. But because we, societally, have determined that we won’t warehouse those who really shouldn’t walk the streets, they walk the streets. They live with their parents, with family members who may be afraid of them themselves.

      The firearm is just a TOOL. Remove that one TOOL from the toolbelt of the mentally unhinged and defective, they will find ANOTHER tool to replace it of equal or higher offense.

        I agree with you BZ. There are idiots who think insane asylums are bad, and if you get rid of them, you get rid of the bad that they represent. It’s like saying that garbage cans are filthy and disgusting, and then outlawing garbage cans, feeling all smug that you solved the horrible garbage can problem. Then, you are confused and cannot understand why garbage is all over the streets. DUH. Same thing.

        Getting rid of sanitoriums did not get rid of the crazies…it merely got rid of the buildings that kept them in one place and away from society.

        I think the one huge problem progressives and liberals have, is they think they can cure the human condition. That banning things and giving out hugs is all it takes to make a perfect world. Then, when things don’t work out as they planned, and in fact, get worse, instead of admitting that what they tried was wrong, they simply double down, and do more of the same twice as much and twice as hard, thinking this time for sure it will work. Kinda like Bullwinkle pulling a rabbit out of his hat. It never works, no matter how big the hat is.

        Whereas, conservatives understand reality, and know that we can not fix everything and everyone. Instead, we realize that life can be ugly, not everything can be fixed by talking aobut it, and we prepare to deal with the problem in the most sensible way possible. Hence, house the insane, to deal with the insane problem, have good guys with guns to counter the bad guys with guns, and so on.

        Liberals live in a world where unicorn farts cure cancer and smell like cotton candy. And when that becomes true, I will become a liberal. But until then, I am a realist, and will be prepared.

        • Bloviating Zeppelinq says:

          Like Socialism. Every new despot thinks he can “do” Socialism better than the last guy. It never works and never will. It’s simply an exercise is creating an even greater wedge between the “haves” in their dachas, and the “have nots” as they queue up for food at the market.


  2. Mike Flynn says:

    just talking about the shooting on TV, and they say cops are refusing to give out the name. O’Reily says he has the name but is holding off till its confirmed just in case it’s a hoax.They did leak out that shooter told victims to state their religion before he started shooting.
    The prez is already saying we have to politicize this, and blaming guns, not shooter , big time, before he could possibly know any details?
    If it walks like a…..etc,etc, etc

  3. BobF says:

    This is tragic and my heart goes out to the families of the victims.

    I watched the JugEared Jackass tonight calling for more gun control. As usual, he doesn’t have one fact about the shooting but starts shooting off his mouth. Nothing on the shooter, where or how he got the gun, the type of gun used, or any other information. As far as he knows, the scum could have broke into the house of a legal gun owner and stolen it. That’s the problem with this clown; he talks before his brain has knowledge. Did that with the Cambridge Police Department, Michael Brown, Freddy Gray, and every other incident involving law enforcement or firearms.

    Dang your vacations don’t last as long as O’s. Less expensive too. :)
    Over at Drudge he has the same picture you have in his main headline story New York Post…caption is “Authorities carry a shooting victim away from the scene after a gunman opened fire at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Ore. on Oct. 1. ” Face covered with sheet, not authorities.
    This from another story from somewhere…”The former president of an Oregon community college where a gunman opened fire, killing at least seven people, says the school has only one security officer on duty at a time, and that person isn’t armed.
    Joe Olson retired in June from his position as president of Umpqua Community College in Roseburg.
    He says last year, one of the biggest debates on campus was whether the school should have armed security officers. He says the college had three training exercises with local law agencies in the past two years, “but you can never be prepared for something like this.”
    I read a comment recently that said elderly like me would not say “go figure.” So go figure. :)

  6. One Citizen Speaking says:

    Has anyone else noticed that the progressive socialist democrats who are in favor of tighter gun control are often the ones to plea bargain away the mot serious gun-related charges to obtain a guaranteed conviction on lesser charges to advance their promotions and political careers? Here in California, the home of uber-liberals, illegal aliens with gun-related charges are often released and go on to commit other heinous act.

    About Fred’s vacation … the nice thing about being a patriot is that you can be a patriot anywhere and in many cases it might be contagious. Have fun Fred.

    Last night, before the name of the bastard was released, I listened to Obama’s rant.
    I figured the only reason Obama came out from under his desk in the oval office(hiding from Putin)was because he knew who pulled the trigger before we did. And I thought to myself, the trigger man had to be black and /or Muslim or he would have never spoke…
    Turns out I was right.

  8. Bloviating Zeppelinq says:

    I still have connections here and there in the LE world. And I have it on good information — very good information — that Obama was high as hell on marijuana when he made that petulant little rant on TV about gun control and the Umpqua shooting.

    You can take the doper out of the neighborhood, but you can’t take the neighborhood out of the doper.


    • dekare says:

      I think that obama, and maybe a few others running this country ought to be randomly drug tested. It’s funny you mentioned that obama was high during his anti-gun tirade. There is this video I saw that I thought the same thing as well.

      The choom gang is still alive and in the white house. Can you imagine obama, biden, jarret, mooch, and pelosi sittin in the oval office on the floor passin a J around. That is how they come up with their social utopia ideas and end it with a bunch of executive orders.

      You know obama buts small strips of the Constitution to roll his joints in…as he slowly smokes it away.

      During my entire career in public service, I was subjected to random testing. How is obama and friends not prone to this same standard? If a cop is high on the job, he may kill a person by being stupid. In the case of obama, he could kill a country or destroy the world by being high and stupid. Who should be drug tested more often?

    • Ron Stabb says:

      Must be some good shit passed around the oval office. It would explain his constant stuttering and stupidity.

    • TexasFred says:

      There have been several times over the last few years that I have looked at his eyes and KNOWN that he was stoned to the bone… But, being a redneck, beer drinking, NASCAR watching White man I was afraid to say anything for fear of being labeled a racist… Well, too late… 😛
