Saturday afternoon, a 19-year-old man opened fire inside a synagogue in San Diego, only to be chased out by an armed, off-duty U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent.
“An off-duty border patrol agent was inside the synagogue during the shooting,” according to ABC. “The agent chased the suspect outside as he attempted to flee and fired on the suspect, striking his vehicle.”
Three people were injured, and one killed when a suspect who has not officially been named opened fire inside the place of worship. The alert CBP agent – a good guy with a gun – likely prevented more damage. A manifesto attributed to a man named John Earnest is circulating online.
Big League Politics reported earlier:
A man has been detained in connection to a shooting at a synagogue in San Diego, according to local news reports.
“San Diego County Sheriff’s deputies are responding to a shooting at a synagogue in Poway on Saturday afternoon,” according to ABC10. “The incident was reported at the Congregation Chabad located at 16934 Chabad Way sometime before 11:30 a.m., the San Diego County Sheriff’s Office twitter account reported.”
Shortly after noon local time, ABC10 said that a man had been detained for questioning. No further details about the suspect were released.
There are “at least four victims” of the shooting, according to the report.

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
