Four Dead, Including Shooter, in Rural Pennsylvania Shooting

Four people are dead including the shooter in a rural Pennsylvania shooting today.
The AP reported:

A prosecutor says four people are dead, including the suspected gunman, in a shooting along a rural road in central Pennsylvania.

Blair County District Attorney Rich Consiglio says three people were shot Friday morning in Frankstown Township, about 70 miles west of Harrisburg.

Consiglio says two men and a woman were shot and killed and the suspected gunman also died.

State police say one trooper was struck by gunfire but escaped serious injury because the shot struck his bulletproof vest.

Consiglio says two other troopers were injured but not shot.

    Are we going to get news coverage of every gun shot wound in the United States until the president gets what he wants? New coverage that omits WHY someone was shot, and all we know is someone died of a gunshot until this assault weapons ban (and confiscation) bill passes and is signed into law?

  • Zzyzxroad

    Is this another gun-free zone?

  • GotFreedom

    Why don’t we hear about violent deaths by other means, because it’s not a “cause”. . .guns/gun control (actually, IMO, they are working towards gun confiscation) is the “cause” and yet, people die in other horrific ways that we hardly ever hear about.

    Do a search of “baseball bat murders”. . .why don’t we ever hear about those nationally. . .will the feds ban baseball bats?

    Do a search of “baby killed in microwave”. . .will they ban microwaves just because some sick person put their child in one???

    The point is, anything can be used as an “assault weapon” if it kills someone. . .will the govt ban pillows that smother, hands that strangle, cars that run people over–NO–personal responsibility is sorely lacking in our country (in every aspect). . . it’s only when reporting about any of these horrific deaths serves a purpose/furthers the “cause” does it matter to the progressives/left!

    Warning Labels Can’t Stop Violence

    [We’ve been here before.

    “The lobbying arm of the video game industry is remaining silent amid growing calls on Capitol Hill for new restrictions on violent games,” Brendan Sasso writes in The Hill. “While the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., last week has sparked debates over gun control and mental-health services, lawmakers are also calling attention to the influence of violent movies, TV shows and video games.”]

    so why do they tell US that “virtual child porn” helps deter pedophilia
    when we know, if anything, it promotes child rapes/molestations and
    all too often, the murders of said children?? and what about VIOLENT
    RAP MUSIC CRAP??
    :-(

    betting you don’t have any logical answers..

    Ted Nugent flips out over calls for
    more gun control, misinformation

    A False Ad About Assault Weapons

    [Machine Guns Still Illegal

    Contrary to what the ad clearly implies, any weapon that can fire 300 rounds per minute remains illegal for civilians to own without specific clearance by the US Department of Justice.

    In fact, machine guns have been tightly regulated since the passage of the National Firearms Act in 1934, in the wake of the gangster era. Legal ownership of a machine gun requires an extensive federal background check, fingerprinting, signed clearance from the chief of local law enforcement (such as a county sheriff), a $200 excise tax, and weeks of paperwork. That was true before the assault-weapon ban was enacted in 1994, and it remains true with the expiration of the ban at midnight Sept. 13, 2004.

    That’s made clear in a question-and-answer document posted Sept.
    13 on the Web site of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and
    Explosives (ATF), explaining the effect of the expiration of the assault
    -weapon ban:

    ATF: All provisions of the National Firearms Act (NFA) relating to registration and transfer of machine guns . . . still apply.

    The fully automatic version of the AK47 — pictured and described
    in the ad — remains just as illegal as it was before the ban expired.]

    Evil Exists And Evil People Do Evil Things

    [It is a well, worn bromide, but the undeniable truth is,
    “If/when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.”

    [..]

    What should be addressed is the fact that, despite varied intentions of groups and politicians, evil acts by evil criminals cannot be stopped by punishing the law-abiding.

    There are over 22,000 gun laws on the books. Which of them stopped this crime? The plaintive cry to strip us of our Constitutional right to own and bear arms isn’t going to prevent what happened. It will, however, make the law-abiding vulnerable to the evil persons with criminal intentions when they decide to perform their evil acts.]

    It’s Time To Repeal the 2nd Amendment!

    AUSONIUS states the case extremely well:

    The pure argument (which few have the guts to say and defend
    these days) for private weapon ownership was, and still is, so
    that a population can remain citizens and not subjects to tyrants.

    Run from it if you must, but this was, and still is, the truth. It is not
    about hunting, “sporting use”, or the like. Once you buy into these
    notions, you get boxed into a corner from which there is no escape.

    The argument for possessing modern weapons is simply that those
    are what you will face should tyrants wish to “compel” your compliance.

    We have an open marxist party which holds the Senate, the White
    House, and much of the courts. They are making their plans very clear.
    It will not stop with compelling you to purchase health insurance, eat
    “right”, drive eco-cars, practice their “approved” religions, and the like.

    Marxists in the 20th century murdered tens of millions of their own
    citizens who disagreed with them. Why would anyone believe the
    21st century marxist will operate any differently?

    I wake to a country that I do not recognize.

    Fewer Guns, More Crime

    [The lessons of More Guns, Less Crime actually apply quite directly to this problem. When Israel suffered terrorists targeting its schools, it ultimately decided to arm its teachers. In fact, Israel generally follows the conceal and carry policy Lott favors throughout society. This way, the Israeli people themselves are the first line of defense against terrorism.]

    Flashback: Clinton Requests $60 Million to Put Cops in Schools

    [The media also doesn’t care how wildly hypocritical they look.

    In their zeal to rampage this left-wing agenda, the media has apparently forgotten that back in 2000, on the one-year anniversary of the Columbine shooting (which occurred with an assault weapons ban in place), President Clinton requested $60 million in federal money to fund a fifth round of funding for a program called “COPS in School,” a program that does exactly what the NRA is proposing and the media is currently in overdrive mocking]

    An opinion on gun control

    [Armed Teachers

    So now that there is a new tragedy the president wants to have a “national conversation on guns”. Here’s the thing. Until this national conversation is willing to entertain allowing teachers to carry concealed weapons, then it isn’t a conversation at all, it is a lecture.

    Now when I say teachers carrying concealed weapons on Facebook I immediately get a bunch of emotional freak out responses. You can’t mandate teachers be armed! Guns in every classroom! Emotional response! Blood in the streets!

    No. Hear me out. The single best way to respond to a mass shooter is with an immediate, violent response. The vast majority of the time, as soon as a mass shooter meets serious resistance, it bursts their fantasy world bubble. Then they kill themselves or surrender. This has happened over and over again.

    [..]

    The average number of people shot in a mass shooting event when the shooter is stopped by law enforcement: 14. The average number of people shot in a mass shooting event when the shooter is stopped by civilians: 2.5. The reason is simple. The armed civilians are there when it started.

    [..]

    Gun Free Zones

    Gun Free Zones are hunting preserves for innocent people. Period.

    Think about it. You are a violent, homicidal madman, looking to make a statement and hoping to go from disaffected loser to most famous person in the world. The best way to accomplish your goals is to kill a whole bunch of people. So where’s the best place to go shoot all these people? Obviously, it is someplace where nobody can shoot back.

    In all honesty I have no respect for anybody who believes Gun Free Zones actually work. You are going to commit several hundred felonies, up to and including mass murder, and you are going to refrain because there is a sign? That No Guns Allowed sign is not a cross that wards off vampires. It is wishful thinking, and really pathetic wishful thinking at that.]

    I carry a gun because I can’t carry a cop, and I can’t throw a rock at 1250 FPS. If you can’t afford a lawyer, you often can’t afford justice. Because of that, some of us snaps out and get in a rage, but they forget that the dead doesn’t PAY and the dead doesn’t SUFFER.

    just a reminder:

    January 17th, 2007

    School Threat

    [* According to two trainers at an anti-terrorism conference on the East Coast, preparations for attacks on American schools that will bring rivers of blood and staggering body counts are well underway in Islamic terrorist camps.

    * The intended attackers have bluntly warned us they’re going to do it.

    * They’re already begun testing school-related targets here.

    * They’ve given us a catastrophic model to train against, which we’ve largely ignored and they’ve learned more deadly tactics from.

    [..]

    Al-Qaeda has publicly asserted the “right” to kill 2,000,000 American children, Rassa explained, and has warned that “operations are in stages of preparation” now. He played vivid videotapes confiscated in Afghanistan, showing al-Qaeda terrorists practicing the takeover of a school. The trainees issue commands in English, rehearse separating youngsters into manageable groups and meeting any resistance with violence. Some “hostages” are taken to the rooftop, dangled over the edge, then “shot.”]

    Computer disc found in Iraq contained U.S. school plans

    [Federal law enforcement authorities notified school districts in six states last month that a computer disc found in Iraq contained photos, floor plans and other information about their schools, two U.S. officials said Thursday.

    [..]

    The disc contained an Education Department report called “Practical Information on Crisis Planning: A Guide for Schools and Communities,” published in May 2003, as well as photos and floor plans.]

    September 13, 2007

    The Ends Islamist Terrorists Seek

    [The entire goal of Al Qaeda-type monsters is to provoke a reaction from mainstream America by pursuing evil against those who stand in the way of imposing theocracy. These fascists have no value for life other than that it’s simply a means to their end of a totalitarian theocratic state. It is their ideology. In their warped view of religion they are God.

    These are not the actions of psychopaths. Instead, they are the calculated actions of those seeking power and those afraid of freedom. They know that liberty’s greatest weakness is its wide exposure to attacks against noncombatants (i.e., you and me) and the way in which protections against those attacks alter the very liberties we all seek to protect.

    [snip]

    If American Muslims declare open war against Al Qaeda, Americans will rush to defend our mosques rather than allow them to be burned. Otherwise, with rage and vengeance, the freedoms so protected by our Constitution will quickly dissipate into a nation gripped by fear and hate of the “other.” And that is the ultimate goal of such horrific acts: to create a reaction which ultimately destroys the very fabric of our nation-the trust of one another, under God, under our Constitution. The children they would kill in schools on this “Perfect Day” would be a utilitarian mechanism (ends justifying the means) to achieve the destruction of the “American” way of life.]

    Eighth anniversary of 9/11 calls for vigilance

    [The events of September 11, 2009 opened America’s eyes to the ruthlessness that militant Islamism can inspire. Yet eight years later our leaders and therefore our nation still struggles with the real threat that looms before us. The parsing of words in recent months of whether we are in a “War on Terror” or an “Overseas Contingency Operation” or even the Obama Administrations decision to designate 9/11 as a “Day of Service,” demonstrate that our leadership is missing the point on what and who the true threat is to America.

    To lay it out in no uncertain terms, Political Islam has one goal, the dominance of the Islamist version of Islam over every aspect of life. Their belief in a theocratic form of government that stifles individual liberty is at complete odds with every principle that built America.

    The ideology of Islamism (aka Political Islam) is in direct conflict with the west and in reality in both a war of ideas as well as a kinetic war on many fronts. Its adherents will use every avenue available to them to achieve their goal. Hijacked airplanes, terror attacks and separatism in the version of shar’iah courts are just weapons on many fronts to both militant and lawful Islamists. Without addressing both the peaceful and violent roots of political Islam (Islamism) together, we ignore the ideological chasm between liberty based western societies like America and the deceptive theocratic global movement of political Islam. Political correctness and a healthy respect for Islam as a faith have prevented the development of a serious strategy against the theological fuel behind global militant Islamism. The threat remains very real and we have seen militant Islamist cells stopped most recently in the past few months in North Carolina and New York.

    The moves to advance political Islam by American Islamist organizations stand to benefit only other Islamists- whether they condemn terrorism or not. Until we are able to engage Muslims openly who are anti-Islamist we will make no progress in a cogent strategy against Islamism in both its militant and lawful forms.

    Americans should mark this eighth anniversary of 9/11 by dedicating ourselves to being vigilant on all fronts in the protection of our individual liberties and the founding principles of America. These fronts include our neighborhoods, interfaith community, government, universities, businesses, and media. In particular, it is long overdue that we openly engage Muslims who are ready to separate mosque and state as a means to defeating political Islam. American Muslims should be vigilant in our protection of our faith and the freedom that the American system gives us to practice that faith.]

    This story is getting minimal media coverage despite the overkill on the anti-gun rhetoric because of who the VICTIMS are.

    The ones the Democrats and their media are actually looking disarm are the probable shooters in this particular story (rural white gun owners). However, they know that it’s the VICTIMS that sell their plans, so this story is ignored.

    When gun victims are inner city blacks or poor white trash (as in this case), they are non-stories. However, when the victims are likely Obama voters, upper middle class Northeastern white children, college students in Virginia, or young white suburban moviegoers in Denver or Oregon, the media and politicians go into a frenzy.

  • Kissmygrits

    Last week there was a home invasion in a rural town in NW Montana where the owner and his wife were stabbed more than 40 times. He died and the wife survived. The killer was a known criminal with a history of violent behavior. Oh, and he was high on chemical MJ. Must have been for a bad back.
