    UPDATE: Clackamas Town Center Mall Shooting

    So I have been reading some of the latest reports and info on the shooting, and here is some of the new information that has me thinking.

    -Shooter was using an AR-15 stolen from a friend.

    -He was NOT wearing body armor, only a load-bearing vest.

    -From listening to the audio of the police scanner, officers did not even enter the building until 7:30 minutes had passed from the first 911 call.

    Link to the report: Jacob Tyler Roberts Identified As Clackamas Town Center Shooter

    Thoughts on the new info? How the fact that the AR-15 was stolen might affect the way the anti's go about their disarmament (Sen. Ginny Burdick, a well known anti-gun OR politician is already calling for new legislation), and the fact that he wasn't wearing armor, does this change your possibility for engagement or not?

    The only thought I have on this at the moment is it's getting very close to the time our guns are going to be involved in a tragic boating accident.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Not that it means anything, but from what I've read and heard the police were on scene in about one minute.

    I knew it sounded too good to be true.

    The antis will always find a spin to justify why we need to have our guns taken away from us. If anything, they'll say citizens do not need "Assault Rifles" because the chance of them falling into the wrong hands is just too great of a chance.

    They know it will be difficult to snatch guns away from gun-totin' Americans so they'll do the next best thing; they'll impose a sin-tax. The taxes will be so steep on guns and or ammo that you simply won't be able for afford said gear and ammo.

    Join and support some pro gun organization (memberships are good Xmas gifts)
    Let your voice be heard to your congressman (even if they are anti gun)
    Don't become complacent.
    Balance anti gun editorials with a pro gun letter to the editor.
    Encourage others to do the same.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Another thing that's changed, the number of shots fired has been 'magically' reduced from 60 to 20.

    Indeed. The last report (the same one that said police were on scene in about one minute) said 18 shots were fired.

    Typical sensationalist journalism. When things first happen, is when they can spew out whatever bullcrap they want to, then they claim an "update" and report (close to) the actual facts.
