Wait ‘til the criminal uses your gun to kill YOU.

Surprise! Happens. If your gun isn’t used in a domestic violence incdent, first. Or accidental fatal self-shooting of a child at your home. Or a teen suicide. Etc.

With a 39 year track record of none of your scenarios happening, I think I'll take my chances.

A hammer is a tool I use to do repairs to my home. A gun is a tool I use to protect said home.

So, you use a gun to secure your property. That doesn't make it a tool, any more than my door lock, my smoke detector or my safe are tools.

Tool
noun

anything used as a means of accomplishing a task or purpose.

If a dildo is a tool, you may qualify too.

If I was ever told to “drop your weapon,” I’d consider taking my derrière to the floor.

My Merriam Webster defines tool as
A knife, hammer, saw, shovel or any instrument used in doing work.
So, if you regard killing someone as doing work, then I suppose a gun is a tool. Probably the most effective tool there is for doing that work. It's intended for nothing else.

Tool Enthusiast Goes on Tool Usage Rampage In Florida
Saudi student opens fire at Pensacola Naval base, killing three


Tampa Bay Times


PENSACOLA — An aviation student from Saudi Arabia opened fire in a classroom at the Naval Air Station Pensacola on Friday morning, an attack the Saudi government quickly condemned and that U.S. officials were investigating for possible links to terrorism.

The assault, which left four people dead, including the shooter, was the second at a U.S. Navy base this week and prompted a massive law enforcement response and base lockdown.

Twelve people were hurt in the attack, including two sheriff's deputies who were the first to respond, one of whom killed the shooter, Escambia County Sheriff David Morgan said. One of the deputies was shot in the arm and the other in the knee, and both were expected to recover, he said.

The shooter was a member of the Saudi military who was in aviation training at the base, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said at a news conference. DeSantis spokesman Helen Ferre later said that DeSantis learned about the shooter's identity from briefings with FBI and military officials.

A U.S. official who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity identified the shooter as Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani. The official wasn’t authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

Earlier Friday, two U.S. officials identified the student as a second lieutenant in the Saudi Air Force, and said authorities were investigating whether the attack was terrorism-related. They spoke on condition of anonymity to disclose information that had not yet been made public.

President Donald Trump declined to say whether the shooting was terrorism-related. Trump tweeted his condolences to the families of the victims and noted that he had received a phone call from Saudi King Salman.

He said the king told him that “the Saudi people are greatly angered by the barbaric actions of the shooter, and that this person in no way shape or form represents the feelings of the Saudi people who love the American people."

The Saudi government issued a news release echoing Trump's remarks.

DeSantis said the shooting demanded a response from Saudi Arabia.

“Obviously, the government ... needs to make things better for these victims," he said. “I think they’re going to owe a debt here, given that this was one of their individuals.”

A national security expert from the Heritage Foundation warned against making an immediate link to terrorism.

“If there is some connection to terrorism, well, then that's that,” said Charles "Cully" Stimson of the Heritage Foundation. “But let's not assume that because he was a Saudi national in their air force and he murdered our people, that he is a terrorist."

Stimson said it was also possible that the shooter was “a disgruntled evil individual who was mad because he wasn't going to get his pilot wings, or he wasn't getting the qualification ratings that he wanted, or he had a beef with somebody, or there was a girlfriend involved who slighted him."

Florida U.S. Sen. Rick Scott issued a scathing statement calling the shooting an act of terrorism “"whether this individual was motivated by radical Islam or was simply mentally unstable."

Scott added that it was “clear that we need to take steps to ensure that any and all foreign nationals are scrutinized and vetted extensively before being embedded with our American men and women in uniform.”

One of the Navy's most historic and storied bases, Naval Air Station sprawls along the waterfront southwest of downtown Pensacola and dominates the economy of the surrounding area.
Thoughts and Prayers,


Pensacola is 66 miles from Niceville

Seems to be more of a Muslim Extremist than a tool enthusiast....
Investigators have found what purports to be an online screed written by the shooter and are working to determine if it is legitimate. In it, the writer expresses hatred toward Americans because of crimes against Muslims and humanity as well as US support for Israel.

Take notice of how the right wing Heritage Foundation, Trump, Trump’s sword dance bud King Salman, and probably his murdering kid, etc. all jump in to mitigate, explain, smooth over, sympathize, etc. after the US navel air base mass murder by a Saudi military embed.

They fear a “Trump’s watch” approved (vetted?) Saudi military man - sitting in a US military classroom - on a US military base - absorbing whatever he could about what US pilots learn, plus everything about that US base - is going to come back to excoriate dancin’ Trump and his close personal Saudi royal family ties that bind.

Kashoggi’s bereaved family members send their thoughts and prayers.
