* Las Vegas, NV – UPDATE – At least 59 dead and 515 wounded. President Trump is expected to visit Las Vegas today. The girlfriend of the shooter returned to the United States last night. Marilou Danley was in the Philippines during the shooting. It appears that the shooter sent her to the Philippines prior to the massacre. The shooter also wired $100,000 to the Philippines but it is still not confirmed if this was sent to the girlfriend or someone else. The FBI met Marilou at LAX as she arrived and is also investigating the overseas connections. Additionally investigators are looking into gambling debts and all angles of the event to try to determine more information. A large amount of firearms and ammunition had been stockpiled in the room for the attack. Reports and pictures are slowly coming out as authorities continue investigations. * Puerto Rico – UPDATE – President Trump was in Puerto Rico yesterday to see the devastation first hand. As often happens, the President’s remarks and actions took center stage over what was actually being accomplished. Supplies and aid is stacking up in the docks and on ships off the coast. The relief and rebuilding effort has been hampered by a lack of truck drivers to move supplies inland. The devastation to the infrastructure, meaning actual roadways, rail systems, power and communications is so thorough that we should expect a very long rebuilding process. This link provides some good information for donations for Puerto Rico: * The Catalan President is expected to declare independence at the end of this week or beginning of next. Spain is fighting against this saying it is illegal and undemocratic. The violent repression of the vote is likely to have fired up and inspired those who want independence. * San Francisco, CA – Fleet Week is under way! The greatest naval force in the world will be at port in San Francisco with a weeks’ worth of events culminating in the Blue Angels air shows this coming weekend. Expect large crowds and traffics snarls in San Francisco since there are also other events in the city this week. -Warnings/ Advisories * Frost Advisory: Southern Trinity, Central Siskiyou County; South Central Siskiyou County; Western Siskiyou County -Weather (South Bay/ San Jose) * Sunrise - 0706hrs.

ISIS forces have centered on Mayadeen as their two largest strongholds of Raqqa and Mosul fell. - CA Firearms Laws: * See thought of the day * Same tyranny as yesterday. Thought of the day: On September 11th, 2001, men armed with box cutters took over four planes and changed the way we view terrorism in the United States. Anyone who has flown since then knows the restrictions that have been put in place because of that. Take off your shoes, lift your arms, no you can’t bring that on even if it’s unopened. Does any of that actually make us safer? Perhaps in the slightest, perhaps to deter those not fully devoted to their deed. Let’s not forget though that the terrorists attacked the World Trade Center numerous times prior including detonating an extreme amount of explosives underneath trying to bring the Towers down. While the Las Vegas shooter is not a terrorist (not because he’s white but because in the general definition of terrorist, the terror is being caused to support and continue a political/ ideological view. So far the Las Vegas shooter just appears to be a deranged white man that decided to become a mass murdering piece of shit), he still fits the description of pure evil. He plotted and planned in such a way that the everyday protections we have to prevent general gun violence would not matter. He had no prior record. He planned meticulously, including setting up cameras in the hallway to his room so that he could see when police arrived. He apparently tried to book the hotel earlier for a different concert (one that would have sent even more division through this country) but it didn’t work out so he got the next one he could. That’s an awful long time to hold onto a mass killing fantasy or to stay mad at something. It appears he even sent his girlfriend away so she would not be involved. He wasn’t even a jilted lover angry at some young cowboy for stealing his girl. So am I saying he’s deranged? Motivated? Unstoppable? What if this was Australia and there were no guns available? That would stop it right? Did laws or making explosives harder to get (weren’t they already very hard to get?) stop the terrorists from finding a way to take down the Towers? Did it stop McVeigh from blowing up the Federal Building in Oklahoma City? (McVeigh is a domestic terrorist). Did it stop the Terrorists in Nice, France from using a truck to kill 86 people and wound 458 others? No, preventing access to an inanimate object is the weakest, and to the memories of those that have died in any of these horrible events, the least we can do to prevent them from happening again. The guns are not the problem. This guy had money, we are lucky he did not use that planning and money to create an even more devastating attack on innocent people. What we really need is for authorities to be completely honest on what is found. We need to know if he suffered a mental break, was he taking medications for depression that have been found in so many of these killings that don’t have an ideological cause. We need to focus on how we find these broken humans. That is how we stop terrorism, gangs, organized crime. We go after the individuals. We remove them from society and that keeps us safer. We do not stay safer by punishing and removing Rights from the general public. That is how we lose. So while the emotional masses scream for every gun to be removed from existence, we know that will not stop those who wish to cause harm, it will only cause them to seek a better way. Blaming an inanimate object for the evil in a human’s heart will not change that evil. Keep your head on a swivel and stay safe -DeltaWhiskey
