At least six people were killed and 15 were injured when a truck driver deliberately mowed down people and targeted a school bus in lower Manhattan Tuesday in what authorities are investigating as an act of terror.

As Crowder phrases it at one point in the video, the discussion taking place in this country is generally between two camps: Gun owners and the ill-informed.

He’s right in many ways. There are a handful of people who do understand gun laws, despite possibly not owning a firearm, but they’re generally on the side with gun owners.

It’s amazing how many people believe, like the one guy, that you don’t have to undergo a background check to get a gun, or that we don’t already have laws in place to block violent people from getting guns.

Kathleen Wynne's Liberals are willing to let Ontario Power Generation take on 4 billion dollars of extra debt... to keep it off the province's books...insert alt text hereThat's not simply my opinion... that comes from Ontario's Auditor General...

TORONTO - Kathleen Wynne’s Liberal government is flouting accounting rules and taking on an unnecessary $4 billion in extra borrowing costs — to be applied to future electricity bills — to keep the true cost of its Fair Hydro Plan buried, Ontario Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk says.

While the Liberals tried to minimize the conflict as a mere accounting dispute, Lysyk said what was at stake was far more important as the financing manoeuvre allows the government to write its own budget bottom line.
It's not too late to reverse this irresponsible chicanery...
The provincial government’s method of accounting, a first in Canada for any government, is not yet carved in stone and the $4 billion can be saved, Lysyk said.

The Somali refugee accused of stabbing an Edmonton police constable on the weekend and running down four pedestrians was ordered to be deported from the United States in 2011 by a U.S. immigration judge.

But Sharif was released on Nov. 23, 2011, on an ICE order of supervision, "due to a lack of likelihood of his removal in the reasonably foreseeable future." Sharif failed to report to the ICE enforcement and removal operations centre on his scheduled date, Jan. 24, 2012.

Sharif entered Canada in 2012. Initial information on the documents indicated he was sponsored by the federal government for one year. In 2012, immigration officials had no reason to red flag Sharif, Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said.
Oh, it gets better... much better...
When Abdulahi Hasan Sharif was flagged as a potential terrorist threat two years ago, police in Alberta complained they were overwhelmed with Islamic State-inspired suspects.

A former colleague said Mr. Sharif was sympathetic to the Islamic State, prone to religious rants about "polytheists" and expressed "genocidal beliefs."

Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale and the RCMP have refused to give details of the 2015 investigation.
Was there actually an investigation, and if so, why is it a big hairy ball secret?

So how did an ISIS sympathizer slip past the security apparatus? Apparently, he didn't... police have known about him for years.
"Sharif was investigated by the RCMP in 2015 after a complaint was made that he was “espousing extremist ideology.” Police found there was “insufficient evidence” to pursue terrorism charges or a peace bond."
So, here we go again... too little, too late...
"Abdulahi Hasan Sharif is expected to be charged with five counts of attempted murder. He will also be charged with terrorism-related offenses."

"The stabbing of a police officer and a subsequent high-speed chase where several pedestrians were run down is being investigated as an act of terrorism."
Make no mistake, this is a socio-political litmus test, if you will. How we, as a country respond to this, will determine how hard and how frequently these crazies will come back at us.
