Police have identified the suspect in the mass shooting at Gilroy Garlic Festival as 19-year-old Santino William Legan.
The shooter, who was Iranian Italian was killed on the scene and police are now in search for his brother and possible accomplice Carlos Legan. Four people including the suspect were killed and 15 others were wounded after at least one gunman opened fire Sunday evening at the festival in Northern California.
Witnesses reported hearing multiple rounds fired and seeing people laying shot on the ground. Others said the gunman was armed with a rifle and dressed in some kind of vest and camouflage fatigues.
Joy Alexiou, a spokeswoman for Santa Clara County Medical Center, said the hospital was treating five patients, “generally” with gunshot wounds. NBC Bay Area reported that ambulance crews were called for reports of as many as 11 victims.
Witness Ryan Walace on the Gilroy Garlic Festival shooter: “I watched him walk up, he raised his gun and started spraying rounds all around. He was walking like he wanted to get stuff done. It was horrifying. He was ready to do some damage.”
Witness says a band had just come on stage for an encore when someone started shooting. People jumped onto the back of her dad’s truck to escape gunfire. Says one woman was shot in back. @KTVU #Gilroy #GilroyGarlicFestival pic.twitter.com/CpV4LhtWHA— Elissa Harrington (@EHarringtonTV) July 29, 2019
Liars and Mentally-ill liberals in the media Pushing White Supremacist narrative
Despite the fact that the suspected shooter Legan, identifies as being of Iranian descent, and in social media posts complained about “white twats”, the usually liberal dipshits are feverishly trying to claim the shooter was a white supremacist.
In a social media post on Instagram, Legan posted a message asking people to read an anti-Christian, anarchist, social Darwinism piece of literature called “Might is Right” by Ragnar Redbeard. He then complained about “mestizos” (mixed white/native) and “white twats.” Does that sound like a white supremacist?
Another Shooting in a Gun-Free Zone
While the mainstream media and Anti-gun politicians like Kamala Harris are already jumping on the gun control bandwagon, let me remind people that this shooting yet again happened in a gun-free zone. Since 1950 all but two of this country’s mass shootings have taken place in a gun-free zone.
The Gilroy Garlic Festival website clearly says the Christmas Hill Park is a gun-free zone.
Simply horrific. I’m grateful to the first responders who are on the scene in Gilroy, and my thoughts are with that community tonight. Our country has a gun violence epidemic that we cannot tolerate. https://t.co/WqWNxGAQnA— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) July 29, 2019
Keep in mind, on top of this park being a gun-free zone, California has an “assault weapons” ban, a Red Flag Law, a ten-day waiting period on gun purchases, a “good cause” requirement for concealed carry permit issuance, a background check requirement for ammunition purchases, and multiple more laws that they said would prevent this!
