First, we had the initial reports. Three gunmen armed with "long guns" had shot and or killed as many as 20 people. They then had disappeared.
We nearly immediately had Obama and Feinstein talking about gun control as if it was a single crazy shooter who they knew had bought his gun at a gun show. A CNN report speculated that the shooters were members of a white supremacist militia. Others noted that the shooters left the scene which meant they were not terrorists since terrorists want to have a final shoot out with authorities. Even Mark Levin saying that his Colt M1911 pistol was not a semi-auto.
All the while the important points were being missed. In a building with according to the Police upwards of 300 people were in, only some 30 victims. The description of the building and population within reminded me of the Bataclan Theater in Paris where so many people were killed. Why then didn't they, the attackers, do more. Where they prevented from moving to the next floor by some security measure.
The argument that the assailants couldn't be terrorists since they simply left the site after their attack is in error by the actions of the terrorists who attacked Charlie Hebdo, who casually stopped to pick up a shoe that fell off the foot of one of the shooters. The final fight of the Hebdo shooters was two days later; And that fight included a new shooter who attacked a Jewish Grocery as a diversion. Little remembered fact is that the wife of the terrorist leader is reported to have reached Syria just after the attacks. Yes, quite different from the later Paris Attack where the wife of the leader blew herself up at the end of her husband's shoot out with Police, again several days later.
The weapons: banned over a quarter of a century ago in California and barred from importation by the Government since 1999. No matter how many times the on scene reporters were saying the weapons were AK-47 type arms, the National reporters were changing it to AR-15 style rifles (different style and different caliber). But the AR-15 is also the required arm for CMP shoots, required by the Clinton Administration in 1998 and thus still available for purchase, except in California.
In the end National reporters, and even the Obama White House, has already decided it was domestic violence with legally purchased guns. The local Police are still looking for the remaining gunmen- as of this time two were reported dead though the woman might have just been the wife of one of the gunmen. One of the assailants has been named with an islamic name and the Police and FBI are still investigating.
