A Transportation Security Administration agent was killed along with three others who were injured on Friday during a shooting that took place inside Los Angeles International Airport. Already, many of the useful idiots in the media are setting the stage to attack conservatives, Tea Partiers, liberty-minded people and the Second Amendment.
The Washington Times reports:
The shooter opened fire with a rifle inside the terminal, killing one agent and injuring three others, NBC Los Angeles reported.
NBC News reported that the gunman, identified as 23-year-old Paul Anthony Ciancia of Los Angeles, was shot by police.
Despite earlier reports, the shooter is not believed to be an off-duty TSA employee.
The New York Daily News adds:
Violence erupted after Paul Anthony Ciancia, 23, pulled his firearm out of a bag while approaching an LAX Terminal 3 security checkpoint and opened fire about 9:20 a.m. He was an L.A.-area resident who was originally from of Pennsville, N.J.
Ciancia was carrying a bag containing a hand-written note that said he “wanted to kill TSA and pigs,” said a law enforcement official who was briefed at LAX on the investigation and requested anonymity because was he was not authorized to speak publicly.
The shooter sent his brother a text that said he was “thinking about taking his life,” NBC10 Philadelphia reported.
This is just what the Obama administration has been waiting on, another high profile shooting incident in order to push Obama’s gun prohibition agenda.
However, let’s just recap that first, he will not gain a lot of sympathy because there were not children involved. Don’t get me wrong, I think the lives of adults are just as precious as children, but we all know that children are used as an emotional ploy.
Second, California has some of the strictest gun laws in the land. Just weeks ago, Governor Jerry Brown vetoed a sweeping semi-automatic rifle ban along with six other anti-gun bills, yet signed into law 11 new gun related laws, several that were extremely invasive.
I suppose that we can expect that the LAX shooting, involving Mr. Ciancia, will be the poster boy in the coming days for Second Amendment attacks by the current Traitor-in-chief.
In fact, my guess is he will be used to target those of us who are not anti-government, but believe in limited government. The media has painted conservatives, Tea Partiers and Liberty minded people as anti-government. Now, they are pushing Ciancia as an “anti-government” type. Check out this tweet from Noah Rothman at Mediaite:
NBC News’ Pete Williams reported that the suspect is Paul Anthony Ciancia, a 23-year-old resident of LA, with no direct connection to the TSA. He had “anti-government materials” on him at the time.
UPI claims Ciancia allegedly may have embraced “strong anti-government views.”
Haven’t these liberal fools learned anything from doing this in the past?
Oh and the anti-semi-automatic rhetoric will be back too. Count on the AR-15 being front and center, even if it is proven a shotgun was used, as was the case with WAshington Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis. In fact, here’s the first of many:
Yep, nothing like getting Obama’s climate change power grabbing executive order and the miserable failure of Obamacare off the page for a day or two and turning it all around against your political enemies, right Barry?
