Terror Attacks and Active Shooter Events Thread

Recommended Posts

Currently there's an active shooter in Santa Fe high school, Galveston county Texas. Initial reports are he was armed with a shotgun. No more yet. Stay tuned. 

 

Boy this keeps happening. It's almost like all the media coverage tells sad fucked up crazies that schools are super soft targets

What is it with schools, of all places, being shot up anyway? Why not bottling factories built in the late 70's?

  • Law enforcement says a pressure cooker with an explosive device was found at the scene.
  • A Facebook page under the same name as Pagourtzis, has been taken down.
  • A witness said students and coaches at the school would bully Pagourtzis and “call him names.”

I wonder if the victims were his bullies.

   Four gunmen stormed a church in Russia’s predominantly Muslim region of Chechnya on Saturday, killing at least one churchgoer and two police officers, according to authorities.

   All the attackers were killed in an exchange of gunfire with the police at the Archangel Michael Church in the center of Grozny, the capital, according to the Investigative Committee of Russia, an internal security agency.

   The gunmen initially took hostages, the leader of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, said, adding that the assailants were armed with knives, hatchets and homemade explosives as well.

What counts as a machine gun in the UK?

Probably anything capable of full auto fire. That's what counts here in the states.

So anything from SMGs, automatic pistols, assault rifles, HMGs?
