Lawmakers debate gun control after Los Angeles airport shooting

from NY Daily News

Washington didn’t waste any time reigniting the months-long debate over gun control following Friday’s tragic shooting.

Two days after a gunman opened fire at Los Angeles International Airport, killing one TSA agent and injuring five others, lawmakers took to the airwaves Sunday to claim that the incident could have been avoided with more — and less — guns.

On one hand, Texas Republican Rep. Mike McCaul suggested that Friday’s bloodbath could have been prevented if TSA officers were allowed to carry guns…

… But gun-control advocates said the terrifying incident highlighted the need for an assault weapons ban in the U.S.

LAX Shooting: Photo of Wounded Suspect and Other Discrepancies

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE:  (H/T Kenny’s Sideshow) This guy says the shooter was dressed like a TSA agent in all blue and says he saw that guys shooting back down the escalator. See any blue on Ciancia in that picture below? He also says the shooter was bigger than he is. Again, take a look at the photo below. There is no way that is the same person this witness described emptying one gun and pulling out another on the escalator.



UPDATE:  LAX shooting suspect Paul Anthony Ciancia was dropped off at the airport by “a friend” who law enforcement agencies have already cleared as having nothing to do with the shooting. According to the official story which is still developing, “the friend” dropped off the despondent Ciancia at the airport, with no ticket to go anywhere, with a bag full of guns and ammo… and had “no idea” he was going to go on a rampage.

“Authorities do not believe the friend knew that Paul Ciancia, the man charged in the attack, planned to open fire inside LAX’s Terminal 3 just moments later, killing one Transportation Security Administration officer and wounding three other people, including two more TSA workers, said the official, who is not authorized to speak publicly about the investigation and requested anonymity.

Ciancia was dropped off in a black Hyundai and was not a ticketed passenger. He was able to respond to investigators’ questions at the scene Friday, the official told the AP exclusively.” AP


Last week Vice President Biden started his big “War on Mental Illness” campaign here in America. Biden bragged that this new agenda of theirs will help determine the “biomarkers” for mental illness. Clearly we can hear Billionaire Bloomberg’s calls for a nationwide “mental hygiene” act in the background:

“Recent deadly mass shootings, including at the Washington Navy Yard and a Colorado movie theater, have been perpetrated by men who were apparently not being adequately treated for serious mental illnesses.

Those tragedies have renewed public attention to the mental health system and areas where Kennedy’s hopes for the treatment and care of those with mental illness were never realized.” Huffington Post

Right on cue, we have the LAX shooting. And when I say “right on cue” I mean it.

Three weeks ago the law enforcement involved in this active shooter scene staged the EXACT same drill at the same location. When the police chief mentioned that fact, a couple guys standing behind him seemed to be a bit exasperated at him for doing so.
