postheadericon [UPDATED] Angry Ex-Employee Kills 5 At Orlando Business Before Killing Himself

UPDATE @ 3:00pm EST

The identities of four victims have been released by police. The victims are Robert Snyder, 69; Brenda Montanez-Crespo, 44; Kevin Clark, 53; and Jeffrey Roberts, 57. The ID of one victim has not been released.

The gunman, who has been identified as John Robert Neumann Jr., was said to have specifically targeted people during the shooting. One of the witnesses told police that Neumann pointed his gun at her and told her to leave.

The shooting took place in multiple locations inside the business.

Original article:

ORLANDO, FLORIDA — A man, who police say was fired from his job in April, went back to his old employer Monday morning and began shooting. The victims included his old boss, as well as 4 others who have not been identified.

From CNN:

Police have not named the dead gunman, 45, but say he has no ties to terror or subversive groups.

Police responded to the call about 8 a.m. at Fiamma Inc., which makes accessories for recreational vehicles, Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said. The business is located in an industrial area northeast of downtown.

Three men and a woman were found dead at the scene, Demings said. Another man died at Orlando Regional Medical Center.

Seven others were inside the business when the shootings took place.

The man responsible has not been identified, but was said to be 45 years old.

Around 8am, police went to the business after receiving a call of shots fired. By the time police arrived, the gunman had taken his own life. He was said to be armed with a knife and handgun.

In 2014, police were called to the same business for a ‘workplace violence’ incident involving the same man responsible for the killings, although no charges were filed.

postheadericon Before The Feds Crack Down On Guns, It’d Be Nice If They Could Account For Their Own

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Official reports show that around 165 Department of Homeland Security firearms were lost or stolen in a period of 31 months. In and amongst the other stolen items of interest include official DHS badges and credentials used to gain access to sensitive areas.

The Department of Homeland Security is getting our “Irresponsible Gun Owner” of the month award.

via Complete Colorado

“Law enforcement credentials, badges or ID cards can be used to access areas closed to the public, restricted access areas, and allow a person to pose as a law enforcement official where lax inspection of the credential to match it with the person carrying it allows that person entry to restricted areas,” Michael Brown, former Undersecretary of Homeland Security and Director of FEMA told Complete Colorado by email. “Possession of these kinds of credentials gives terrorists or criminals the basic information needed to counterfeit other credentials.”

This follows in the footsteps of ATF’s new measure to classify wet nitrocellulose as an explosive and potentially change the way ammunition is sold. Wet nitrocellulose is a primary ingredient in many ammunition primers. By not classifying the substance as an explosive, restrictions on selling and shipping ammunition have been relatively lax by comparison of the shipment of substances classified as explosives.

via ATF Bulletin

“We are aware that the U.S. Department of Transportation may assign a nonexplosive classification to nitrocellulose when it has been wetted with water or alcohol. This is based, in part, on the diminished likelihood of explosion in a transportation accident. Because the nitrocellulose retains its explosive characteristics when the water or alcohol is removed, the wetted nitrocellulose remains a nitrocellulose explosive, subject to the licensing, safety and security requirements of the Federal explosives regulations.”

For those who may be unfamiliar with the many heads of the hydra known as the Department of Homeland Security, let’s discuss where the majority of these credentials, badges, and guns went missing:

  • Customs and Border Protection (CBP)
  • Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
  • U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)

In the midst of an unprecedented wave of terrorism in Europe, how could we ever imagine that having some hooligan faking the funk on immigration and borders would bite us in the proverbial rear?

So, while the Federal government decides to strip Medical Marijuana recipients of their right to possess firearms and carry concealed, and rules against concealed carry as a constitutional right, AND tries to classify the principle ingredient in ammunition primers as an explosive regulated under the ATF… We’re somehow neglecting to watch our own borders and ports of entry?

Here’s the thing — if the government was actually serious about making this country safer, it wouldn’t be concealed carriers or otherwise law-abiding citizens that they would need to worry about.

We’re not the problem.

We don’t need serialized bullets, Chicago.

We don’t want to be restricted when entering into state buildings, Virginia.

And we certainly don’t think people should be held civilly liable for defending themselves inside their home, Oregon.

And if you can’t secure basic things like the ports-of-entry, customs, and borders… Why should we be the ones to bear the brunt of that security breach?

It doesn’t make sense.

That’s why we need to be concealed carriers. We need to protect our homes and communities because it’s becoming increasingly obvious that the federal government doesn’t know or doesn’t care what happens when 3,000 badges go missing and about 195 of their federally-issued guns go off the books.

We have to look out for each other. We’re not given any other good options.

postheadericon Concealed Carrier Killed In Ambush, Shot Attacker Before Death

DAYTONA BEACH, FLORIDA — In what appears to be a preplanned ambush, Bobby E. Willis III, 30, walked right into his assassin, Ricky Kelly, 32, outside a convenience store. Kelly allegedly opened fire on Willis, fatally striking him. Willis was a licensed concealed carrier who just moved from Miami to Daytona Beach. Laid on the hot concrete in the early morning, Willis was able to pull his own handgun and hit Kelly twice.

Kelly ran from the scene of the crime but was later picked up by police. He had to undergo surgery but is expected to make a full recovery. Willis died but several witnesses confirm that bystanders attempted to help him into the store for safety.

According to police records obtained by the Daytona Beach News-Journal, Kelly is a felon with prior criminal charges for cocaine possession. As such, he is not legally allowed to own and carry a gun in the State of Florida. Willis, however, was a legally licensed concealed carrier and decided to carry that day.

The good guy doesn’t always win in these situations. At best, Kelly will be tried for first degree murder and possession of a gun by a convicted felon. He’ll be in prison for a very long time. That’s a shy thing in comparison to the loss of life of a concealed carrier.

But, it’s also why we carry.

Who knows why Willis was the subject of a planned ambush? It doesn’t matter. It could be any of us in those shoes. For whatever reason, Kelly decided that he was going to shoot a man in broad daylight and escape in a Cadillac. That’s not how things work when you’re fighting someone who wants to defend his life.

It’s a high price to pay but ultimately, Willis did precisely what he needed to do: stop his attacker from hurting anyone else.

There have been cases of mistaken identity where a gang member has targeted an innocent person for assassination. Gangs don’t care. It would be a minor correction for them.

“Oh that guy? That’s not the right guy.”

Whether Willis knew he was being targeted or just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time will be the subject of a lot of speculation from those who witnessed that fateful occurrence.

For the rest of us, we don’t take chances. We carry everyday.

  • Going to the convenience store to pick up some orange juice? Carry.
  • Walking outside to pick up the newspaper off the front lawn? Carry.
  • Hanging around the house watching a movie? Carry. Carry. Carry.

You can only make the mistake of not carrying once — when it’s your life or the life of someone you love being threatened or hurt by a bad guy.

That’s why we carry concealed every single day… Because criminals don’t care who they hurt.

postheadericon [NSFW] Security Guard Shoots Suicide Bomber Before He Can Detonate Vest With People Nearby

ISTANBUL, TURKEY — A coordinated attack involving a number of suicide bombers took place at the Ataturk International Airport in Istanbul, Turkey. Thirty one people are confirmed dead and as many as sixty injured. In one harrowing video, a security guard is able to shoot one of the suicide bombers before he was able to detonate.

Another police officer allegedly dove onto another suicide bomber but was consumed in the blast.

The attack kicked off in the entranceway of the airport — well before the security screening area. It’s a harrowing reminder that Islamic State militants are able to perpetrate extreme attacks far from their base of operations in Syria and Iraq.

News agencies like NBC and Sky News can give you greater insight onto the event, but we wanted to discuss the security guard who was able to save countless lives by neutralizing the attacker with his gun.

The suicide bomber was still able to detonate but the quick reflexes of this security officer was able to neutralize him long enough to evacuate people from the area.

News reports disagree about precisely how many explosions took place, how many suicide bombers participated, and a number of other elements. It’s giving us a real understanding that these types of attacks — whether in a nightclub or an airport — do not reveal themselves easily.

Just because one suicide bomber was neutralized, there may be more. Just because one shooter is taken down doesn’t mean there aren’t more behind him or lying in wait.

If the events in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and countless of other places reveal anything is that the enemy will be unpredictable.

This directly applies to concealed carry practices here in the United States.

If you are so fortunate as to neutralize an attacker before he can do you harm, never assume he is acting alone.

A trend I remember from my days in Iraq was the use of follow-up attacks after a main attack. In any coordinated attack, you have the main elements that kick it off and then you sometimes have groups of men who show up to fight once the fight is believed to be over. Often times they can target emergency services, police officers, and even innocent civilians.

Any target that is a “target of opportunity” is a valid target. And we unfortunately live in a world where we are beginning to see that we can be targets of opportunity.

Our jobs, collectively, is to make those targets hardened.

There are good people out there in this world that will rise to the occasion when bad guys attack. And I guarantee there will be concealed carriers amongst them willing to answer that call.
