  1. Am I to understand that, after all the energy put into crafting the recent guns at hospitals legislation, an actual gun has made its appearance at such a venue?

    • It was actually in the parking lot across from the hospital. Hospital has stated that the victim was neither a patient nor a member of staff.

      • I am somewhat familiar with that hospital. I think all those parking lots are associated with the hospital complex and would come under the gun ban because the ban extends to hospital grounds (as I recall from having to read through that legislative monstrosity).

      • I was wrong. I reread that bill S30 as passed by house and senate and it doesn’t say anything about “hospital grounds”. It just says you can’t possess a gun while in a “hospital building”. Very interesting; I don’t know where I got my idea. So guns could be left in the cars at those parking lots.

      In London, as soon as the major headlines started running ‘knife attack’ stories, people started using knives to start hurting each other.

      False flags happen to justify the narrative. Real people get hurt and that justifies the narrative its appears to support.

      Good catch, Di.

  2. Update from the Caledonia Record; “A Be-On-The-Lookout notice has been issued to law enforcement for a silver Jeep Wrangler with Connecticut license plates that may have been connected to the incident.”

    At the risk of profiling . . . is anyone else shocked that the vehicle in question bears Connecticut plates? Off the top of my head I can thing of 6 Connecticut individuals currently facing charges in the NEK for drug related shootings. At the risk of being called a racist . . . never mind, let’s just leave it that they all have gang-related ties.

    • Let’s please assume that it was some nice folks from Greenwich who came up to go skiing and an argument ensued with some other folks about borrowing their Grey Poupon…
