36 thoughts on “Meme of the Day #51”

  1. We gotta be getting to some sort of tipping point when a preposterous conspiracy meme engenders a “sounds legit” response in normal people.

    Only three civilian deaths!
    That’s apparently a win in some quarters.

    I know you’ve lost your humanity and moral compass m0nty, but even the most rabid of extreme leftists like yourself will read the facts below and grudgingly accept that many more deaths were about to occur. The armed civilian DID score a win by cutting down this evil man before he destroyed any more lives.

    “The real hero of the day is the citizen [who] was lawfully carrying a firearm in that food court and was able to stop the shooter almost as soon as he began,” Chief Ison told reporters.

    He described the armed bystander as a 22-year-old man.

    The shooter was alone and had a rifle and several magazines of ammunition, according to the newspaper.

    I agree OSC, it could’ve been a lot more.
    But I wouldn’t call it a ‘victory’, who did?

  4. 22 year old Eli Dicken stopped the mall shooter in 15 seconds flat, landing 8 out of 10 shots from his 9mm pistol at 40 meters. That’s hard enough to do on a target range, this guy did it under combat conditions with his girlfriend screaming in his ear.

    Confirmed: On Tuesday, Johnson County Coroner Mike Pruitt said an autopsy found the suspect had eight gunshot wounds and none were self-inflicted.

    It absolutely is. Murderous rampage decisively ended within one minute with minimal loss of life and collateral damage.

    Only the Fat Man could pick holes in such a good news story…

    Particularly in Uvalde?

    m0nty-fa is vewwy, vewwy, upset that there were not more deaths for him to gloat over, while screaming for all law abiding citizens to be disarmed, so that nut cases can have a free run.

    “minimal loss of life”, mm hmm.

    Mass shootings in Australia over the last three years: nil.

  10. Also, there were upwards of 400 good guys with guns in Uvalde, who did bugger all until a classroom full of kids were massacred.

    Pretty sure that was another Broward County-style US Law Enforcement institutional failure, driven by abject fear of agenda-driven crywankers and leftwit activists like yourself rather than Texas’ gun laws, Fat Man.

    What were your two idiotic attempts at Reply-Guying your way out of trouble trying to achieve, again?

  11. Waiting for a practical suggestion from Monty to prevent such things when there’s more firearms in a country than there are people.

    I can suggest the Bible, since Christians don’t seem to commit mass murder, but I admit that isn’t exactly a practical answer.

    When trouble is seconds away, the police are minutes (sometimes over an hour) away. One respectable member of the public solved the problem very quickly, preventing the kind of incident that you lurrrrrve to gloat over.

    But thanks for proving our point.

    PS, it might shock you to know that criminals rarely bother to get licences, or register their weapons, even in Australia.

  13. Ok to kick off the discussion I’ll add a practical suggestion. What the Israelis do. When a perp shoots up some people the IDF comes and demolishes the perp’s family house.

    It does seem to have a useful deterrent effect, probably inspiring the parents to admonish young angry sons before they decide to get all shooty.

    Man who Neutralized Greenwood Mall Shooter Did in 15 Seconds What 376 Law Enforcement Officers in Uvalde Couldn’t Do in 77 Minutes

    As my colleague Alex Parker explained, the killer came loaded for bear.

    The shooter was armed with a Sig Sauer 400M 5.56-caliber rifle.
    He had a Smith & Wesson M&P 15 5.56 on reserve in the restroom.
    A Glock 33 .357 pistol was on his person.
    He was armed with over 100 rounds.
    He’d been frequently practicing at a range for the past two years.

    The killer went into the bathroom near the food court, preparing for the attack. When he finally came out and started shooting, Dicken saw him and his rifle from 40 yards away and immediately understood what was happening. The shooter shot and killed three people. He injured two. The initial police report was that it took Dicken two minutes to respond to the shooter. But that wasn’t true. The police just corrected that. Dicken neutralized the shooter within 15 seconds of him starting to shoot, an astounding reaction, doubtless saving countless other lives.

  15. Mass shootings in Australia over the last three years: nil.

    2019 Darwin shooting. 4 dead, 1 wounded.
    2019 Melbourne nightclub shooting. 2 dead, 4 wounded.

    Three years? That’s an odd qualifier. It does avoid this one though.
    2018 Osmington shooting. 7 Dead.

    Was reading a while ago, Australia uses a different definition to everyone else so our overlords can claim we haven’t had a mass shooting. Of course the like of monty don’t care, it’s all about feels.

  17. Australia uses a different definition to everyone

    Indeed. It seems 4 is the magic number and apparently wounded don’t count.

    Thanks to Mr. Dicken’s brilliant shooting there were only 3 dead victims in the US mall shooting.

    No problems with me.
    When a family tie is more important that others lives, it’s the only rational thing to do.
    It will be policy when I am rightfully returned to the throne of Australia.

  19. The sins of the son accrue to the father. Very Christian.

    For a “son” that shoots up/cuts up Jews it is not a sin, but rather a pass to his paradise.
    These people don’t think like us. Different methods of deterrent are therefore needed.

    …aaand that’s why montifa selected the time frame. He learnt well from the Climate scientists who cherry pick their data the same way.

    not only that – he uses a different definition of ‘mass shooting’ for the US vs. Aus.

    9mm pistol … an autopsy found the suspect had eight gunshot wounds

    Did the autopsy find that the lungs were blown right out of the body? If not, someone had better let Brandon know.

  23. Dicken fired 10 shots for 8 hits. For the left that is a gross over reaction. In Australia he would probably be charged with murder. Constable Rolfe was only entitled to fire once according to NT police.

  24. “Also, there were upwards of 400 good guys with guns in Uvalde, who did bugger all until a classroom full of kids were massacred.”

    400 government approved and sanctioned gun carriers did nothing for an hour.
    1 normal citizen ended it in under a minute.

    You might say it’s an object lesson in government (in)efficiency.

  25. Why the management still thinks it’s fair and reasonable to allow Monty here is beyond me. Fight fire with fire, cancel those who are of the left and resolutely troll this or other blogs just because they can. It’s not as if he adds value or enlightenment.
