postheadericon A Terrorist Set Off A Bomb In A NYC Subway This Morning, And He’s The One With The Worst Injuries

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK — In a attempt at what appears to have been a failed suicide bombing, a 27-year-old terrorist suspect is in custody in a Manhattan hospital after sustaining injuries from his homemade bomb that partially detonated inside a subway terminal this morning.

The suspect, Akayed Ullah, set off his device in a subway passage around 7:30am during rush hour. Three people are reported to have received minor injuries, but the brunt of the force was taken by the terrorist himself. After police subdued him, he was taken to the hospital with some minor burns and lacerations.

His homemade device was said to be strapped to his body via zip ties and Velcro.

NBCNews.com reports;

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called the explosion an “attempted terror attack” and said there were no additional known incidents.

“Thank God the perpetrator did not achieve his ultimate goals. Thank God our first responders were there so quickly to address the situation,” de Blasio said. He called the situation “incredibly unsettling” for New Yorkers, 6 million of whom rely on the subway for their commutes every day.

Law enforcement officials said the device either went off prematurely or only partially detonated,

Former NYPD commissioner Bill Bratton said preliminary information indicated that the explosion was carried out in the name of the Islamic State.

Luckily, this terrorist failed in his attempt to create death and destruction, as this incident could have been much worse than it was. Having an attack inside the subway system is a scary thought, and seeing the police acting so quickly and with such bravery in the face of this terrorist incident is something that lets us know that New York City is always ready to rush in when it is required.

The above photo was taken of the suspect after being in police custody. If we could see his face, we would see the face of defeat and embarrassment.

A video of the incident can be seen below. After the explosion, the person seen lying on the ground is the terrorist suspect, probably very upset that he’s still alive.

Being a target for terrorists, New York City is one of the most –if not the most– resilient places on the planet. New Yorkers will not cower in the face of these individuals who look to destroy and disrupt their way of life.

We hope that the three injured people are able to make quick recoveries.

And, we hope that this surviving suspect is charged and convicted, and sentenced to the maximum penalty available under the law.

postheadericon Early Morning Heist At The Bellagio Gets Tense When Suspects Can’t Start Their Car

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA — It’s been a busy day on the Las Vegas strip after armed robbers sacked a Rolex store inside the Bellagio Hotel and Casino. Three men are believed to be connected to the event and they began their robbery at approximately 1:30 a.m. and used sledgehammers to smash the glass encasing the Rolex watches.

Guests and visitors, according to CNN, were not hurt during the incident itself but after the robbers escaped to the parking garage to get their vehicle, the vehicle failed to stop. This prompted them to attempt to carjack a vehicle.

The men were wearing suits and at least one had a pig mask on. They have not been identified at this point but one of them is believed to be in custody.

Las Vegas police were extremely quick to respond and within moments, locked down portions of the strip around the Bellagio.

One of the most recognized casinos on the strip, the Bellagio has a staunch no firearms policy for guests and visitors. In fact, most every hotel and casino I’ve heard of that’s one the strip doesn’t allow firearms to be carried in by guests and visitors.

The way they allay those concerns is by having added armed security and police which are traditionally fast to respond to incidences. However, no armed service can guarantee safety. These robbers weren’t likely looking for a fight so much as to snag those watches.

In instances like that, stay out of it. Take cover. Find a place to barricade yourself until police arrive. I’m basically ascribing the same policies I’d use in an event that happened later that same day on the strip. That involved a lone individual who shot and killed one person and severely injured another. He surrendered to police later this afternoon after they cordoned him off.

As concealed carriers, we’re obliged to follow the law. That means when a private establishment says ‘no firearms allowed’, then, unfortunately, we have to abide so long as that signage is alongside the intent of state law.

We have to rely on our situational awareness and good planning to figure these things out. Because this event happened at 1:30 a.m., most of the patrons in the casino were likely more than a little inebriated. This creates a static chaos as people’s inhibitions are lowered and their judgement is impaired. Thankfully, everyone pretty much stayed low and stayed safe.

Gun free zones, man. Gun free zones…

postheadericon Early Morning Home Invasion Meets With Tough Resistance From Homeowner

COLUMBUS, OHIO — A homeowner was early to rise when he heard an intruder enter his home at approximately 4:30 a.m. Thankfully, he had a gun and was able to identify and shoot the suspect.

According to the Columbus Dispatch, Fredrick Eisnaugle, 27, was taken to a nearby hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. He is expected to recover and he is being charged with aggravated burglary.

Columbus police released a picture of Eisnaugle’s mug shot and his entire face is covered with tattoos. Whether this is his first go-round or not, we’re reminded as homeowners that it’s always important to keep that gun close. It’s hard to anticipate how a burglar is going to react when he’s confronted. At best, he could surrender and wait for police or, at worst, he could try his hand at gaining the upper hand against you.

In either case, it just makes sense to keep a gun nearby and ensure you feel you’re able to accurately and precisely put rounds on target if need be.

The homeowner stopped after Eisnaugle was neutralized. Neutralized, in this case, means your opponent poses no more a threat to you. That’s all that’s needed. The rest the police can handle.

Be safe and carry everyday, especially in the home.
