#2 Smoke grenades, plenty of ammo, appeared 'Middle Eastern' by some reports (although 24-hour rule applies), took out bouncer first.

So well planned.

#3 Borderline Bar and Grill:

For over 25 years, The Award Winning Borderline Bar & Grill of Thousand Oaks has stood as the Ventura County's Largest Country Dance Hall & Live Music Venue. With over 2,500 square feet of wide open dance floor, Borderline has provided a haven for country line dancing folks of all ages equiped with pool tables, games, HDTV's, and a full bar & dinner menu open till 2am 5 nights a week.

The Borderline Bar & Grill first opened its doors in the late 80's, in beautiful Malibu Ca. alongside the infamous Pacific Coast Highway and has since moved to Thousand Oaks Ca. in 1993.

Since the doors have opened in '93, the "Giant Cowboy Hat" & "Disco Ball Saddle" have stood as a tribute to the original Borderline, centered above the dance floor and accompanied by the famous "BORDERLINE - Where your boots meet the beach" banner.

May or may not be relevant, but the 2017 Mandalay Bay hotel sniper shooting also took place at a Country and Western venue.

#5 Lots of pro-American shirts and military tattoos on the survivors in the pics.

May be my cynicism talking but I wouldn't be surprised if that is why it was targeted.

#8 Listening to the Beeb:
1) no mention of perp's identity or ethnicity
2) no evidence of terrorism at this time statement

Usually, this is a sign of non-white guy + terrorism. Any bets on "known wolf"?

#12 Ian David Long is the Thousand Oaks shooter, a military veteran known to local law enforcement. He may have taken his own life.

Ventura Count Sherrif Geoff Dean giving excellent interview/press conference on FOX right now.

#14 Was the shooter a Marine combat veteran? PTSD?

Police had good response time. They did a good job. RIP for the 29 year veteran of the PD who was first in and got shot and killed. Sympathies for his family and son. His dad was a hero.

#15 I did a search for David Ian Long and the images that showed up were victims and one white guy. At first I thought the white guy was the shooter but he was just the reporter writing the story.

Internet is weird sometimes.

#16 From Besoeker’s link:

One neighbor who knew Long said he was a veteran who suffered from PTSD. She said, "I don't know what he was doing with a gun." Others said Long lived at the home with his mother.

His gun, which appears to be a .45-caliber handgun, was purchased legally, according to ABC News. AP reports that he also deployed a smoke device.


The Daily Mail says he is a Marine and he committe suicide after killing the first sheriff who came through the door. They have photos of him in uniform — he’s white.

#17 ‘Please pray if you believe’: Adam Housley’s niece is a possible victim of the #Borderline mass shooting

#18 I think we have a lot of veterans who spent way too much time in places like Iraq and Afghanistan. We should leave those shit holes to their own devices, defend our own borders, and then bring factories back to America so young men can get good jobs.

#22 DOD has spent a pile on “resiliency” and other buzzwords. Does that count?

Ketamine and Ecstasy work apparently.

#24 Adam Housley, a former Fox reporter, has been an independent investigative reporter. A niece might be motive alone, sending a message to back off. Trey Gowdy also lost a nephew killed & Eric Bollinger's son who never did drugs had an untimely overdose. Papadoupolis was warned to stay in the open as anyone challenging the Deep State is a threat. I really don't believe in coincidences and now with all the other Fox peeps being threatened and doxxed.
