Of course a CNN person throws in "handgun" without knowing. Fox reported he had a BB gun and paintball gun. Geeze.

Suspect was shot by police. Wounded.

Radio reported suspect had bushy beard.

Targeted people on bicycle path. Sounded like he went 30 blocks on path.

ABC news said this:

http://abcnews.go.com/US/york-city-offi ... d=50842052
The vehicle kept driving south until it hit another vehicle, police said. At that point, the suspect, who was "displaying imitation firearms," got out of the vehicle and was shot by responding officers, authorities said.
Do what you say you're gonna do.

But he mowed down bikers and pedestrians with a real truck.

I’m waiting for the mayor and governor to hold their press conference and make everything all better.

A U.S. counterterrorism official told NBC News that the intelligence community is unaware of any claims of responsibility in the attack at this time.
And vowed to discredit any attempts by ISIS or other Islamic terror groups to claim responsibility. :banghead:

Thanks Obama for welcoming thousands of terrorists to our country, thanks all you judges blocking President Trump's constitutional power to restrict immigration, thanks progressive communists for all your efforts to bring terror to our streets like Europe has been experiencing.

This fits the deep state agenda.

The same procedure for obtaining a drivers license as for a carry permit, at least for some folks, could be a solution.

Didn't this type of attack occur in NYC just this past May? It is dangerous to be a pedestrian or biker in NYC. So, why does NY and California want to be sanctuaries?

It is unlikely that ISIS will claim responsibility if this was theirs. They consider it a failure if the attacker lives and is captured, therefore not becoming a martyr in their eyes.

They have distanced themselves from such attacks in the past, despite later evidence proving that it was an ISIS "soldier".

Of course the anti's will be quick to point out that if he had access to real firearms there would have been many more killed - therefore in their mind this proves gun control works.

The Assault Truck had a Stock-Bumper, Muffler Silencer, was Automatic, & had a high capacity fuel tank (over ten gallons)
No one NEEDS more than ten gallons
Thank goodness it wasn't a black one, the black ones are dangerous.
I know, I've seen lots of pictures of trucks... so yeah, I'm pretty much an expert.
I was even a truckowner once, I had a license for it..
I support the right to own a truck, but .... but .... but we need to limit the capacity and put governors on the motors to limit their speed, that's a loophole, yeah more government that's the answer
