Jerad and Amanda Miller, the husband-and-wife duo who gunned down two Las Vegas police officers and a civilian Sunday before killing themselves, previously lived in Lafayette and were often heard spouting racist, anti-government views, according to neighbors.
The shooters were a married couple thought to be in their late 20s who were new to the Las Vegas Valley, according to a law enforcement official close to the investigation. Police are looking into their links to the white supremacy movement and found swastika symbols during their initial investigation.
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Assistant Sheriff Kevin McMahill said at a press conference Monday that one of the suspects, 31-year-old Jared Miller, left a swastika, a Gadsden flag — which features a coiled snake with the words “Don’t Tread on Me” — and a note on top of the body of one of the officers who was gunned down inside Cici’s Pizza during their lunch break.
I want to challenge you on something Shannon. Wayne LaPierre, executive director of the NRA, after Sandy Hook, said the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. And I think, essentially [what guns rights proponents are saying] is [they] want their wives to be able to carry–to be the good person with the gun. Is there an example in school shootings or a mall shooting or these public facilities, where that has been wrong? Where a bad guy with a gun has been stopped in any other way or by a person other than a law enforcement officer with a gun or by killing himself? Watts responded: “This has never happened. Data shows it doesn’t happen.”
