Enough Is Enough

On Sunday, June 12, 2016, roughly 50 people were killed, and another 53 more were injured in an attack on a nightclub in Orlando, Florida. In October 2018, a hateful individual named Robert Bowers set the societal shooting wheel in motion once more when he walked into a Pittsburgh synagogue and opened fire on members of the congregation. Bowers killed eight men and three women inside the Tree of Life Synagogue during Shabbat services on Saturday morning, and following a gunfight with Pittsburgh police and SWAT officers, he was captured. 

How many more people need to become victimsof mass shootings before lawmakers finally decide that “thoughts and prayers” are no stronger than an innocent civilian standing in the line of fire? In the United States, mass shootings are actually the most common and most closely tacked type of mass casualty event. According to the Congressional Research Service, mass shootings are events where more than four people are killed with a firearm within one event, and in one or more locations in close proximity. There were 66 public shootings between 1999 and 2013, but in 2017, there were more mass shootings than days in the year. 

Earlier this morning, an individual decided to inflict hatred and harm on people praying at the Al Noor and Linwood mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, killing 49 innocent civilians in the process. Unlike America, New Zealanders do not have any legal nor constitutionally-supported right to own guns, and the island nation has strong laws applying to firearms for those allowed to own and operate.

Having said that, the Small Arms Survey, which records estimated gun ownership around the world, says that New Zealand has more than 1.2 million civilian-owned firearms. By comparison, Americans own as many as 400 million firearms — nearly half of all civilian-owned guns around the world — even though America represents roughly 5% of the world’s population. 

The most bone-chilling aspect of this mass shooting is that it seems like the entire attack was intentionally performed as a social media stunt. A video of the attack has been circulating around the internet since the shooting take place, and prior to the attack, an anonymous message was posted on 8chan, a sort-of lawless message board where people post racist, abhorrent content in the name of free speech. The anonymous post included an 87-page manifesto which detailed the plans of the shooting, as well as a link to the planned live stream of the attack. What began as a perceived attempt at “trolling” ended up being a genuine plan for killing a large amount of people. 

In the shooter’s manifesto, the alleged shooter credits several white supremacists who committed mass shootings in the name of nationalism. The shooter speaks to one character in particular, Candace Owens, a popular far-right person. 

“Each time she spoke I was stunned be her insights and her own vies helped push me further and further into the belief of violence over meekness. Though I will have to disavow some of her beliefs, the extreme actions she calls for are too much, even for my tastes.”

“Brenton Tarrant”

After every mass shooting, the media takes the haunting details of the recent massacre and initiates two to three days of in-depth analysis, interviews with neighbors who knew victims, and commentary on responses and tweets made by prominent political figures. The protestors protest, gun lovers respond using the timeless “people kill people” rhetoric and nothing changes. I cannot stand to see more people get killed because, globally, we choose to remain ignorant. It is no longer a luxury that we can take, we need to take action to protect people, no matter their creed, race, or color, from attacks like this.

Where Will Oil Go After This Week’s Price Hit?

oil and gas news

Even though oil had been taking a beating over the last 2 trading sessions, its price rose to $69 per barrel on Friday. However, oil prices are experiencing the worst week of 2019 mainly due to potential economic slowdown and ever-growing oil inventories. US oil inventories have not been this high since July of 2017. And to top it all off, the trade war between the US and China is growing wearier every day further affecting oil prices.

Naeem Aslam, the chief market analyst at TF Global Markets, stated, “Clearly, bargain hunters are back in town.” He later added, “However, it is still set to record the worst week of the year and this is due to the increase in trade war tensions between the U.S. and China.”

Global Scale

The global benchmark for oil, Brent Crude, has experienced a decrease of 5 percent this week. However, Brent Crude this morning climbed $0.98 to value each barrel at $68.74. Due to US sanctions and voluntary supply cuts, a floor under prices held. Market analysts are expecting the oil market to recover off of the price floor.

“It is reasonable to doubt whether Saudi Arabia will be willing to step up its output given the latest decline in prices, […] we therefore expect to see higher oil prices again in the near future,” Explain analysts at Commerzbank.

In order to make the market tighter, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries has been cutting oil supplies since the beginning of the year. 

Brent Crude’s prices reflect that the supply and demand of oil is tightly knit. According to UBS, Brent Crude should get back to $75 this month as supply gets tighter and tighter.

“Compliance of OPEC and its allies to the production cut deal remains high, while production from Iran and Venezuela is likely to again trend lower this month,” explains analyst Giovanni Staunovo,

Threats to people’s lives are constantly developing across the globe. In order to mitigate the growing fears of international conflict, security and defense companies have continuously innovated.

Living in constant fear is never sought and these companies understand that. Security innovations allow people in the US to walk around freely at the park or go watch their favorite artist at a concert with little to no fear.

New Potential for the Security Industry & Security Stocks

While developing security protocols and machines to fight threats overseas is important, home-grown threats have become a point of concern for US citizens. Mass shootings have increased, and the Muslim radicalization of American citizens is prevalent as ever. In order to make people safer, Liberty Defense has come to fill that hole.

Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (SCAN.V) is developing HEXWAVE to revolutionize how facilities get secured. HEXWAVE can be used to detect any kind of weapon through 3D imaging. The technology utilizes both quickness and indiscretion to produce warnings of potential threats while respecting people’s privacy. 

While the product is still undergoing testing, Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (SCAN.V) has been taking steps to put HEXWAVE in front of the public. The company recently announced signing a memorandum of understanding with Utah’s Attorney General to beta test HEXWAVE there. The technology can be tested at sporting events, amusement parks, schools, and government buildings.

Bill Riker, Liberty Defense’s CEO, stated, “HEXWAVE can be applied in a variety of settings to provide a means to identify possible threats before they advance into attacks. We are excited that the Attorney General of Utah recognizes the potential value of this technology and the opportunity it provides for enhanced security in the state.”

What’s Should Be Expected Of Defense Companies?

When people think about the US armed forces they marvel at the gear used from tanks to jet planes. Most people do not take the moment to think where the US actually gets its arms from.

Report: This New Technology Could Transform A Multi-Billion-Dollar Industry!

One company responsible for US defenses is Lockheed Martin (LMT). Lockheed Martin develops and manufactures missile systems, aircraft, and training systems. They even provide cybersecurity services to governmental figures.

While Lockheed Martin controls a large portion of the defense industry, they show no signs of slowing down. Recently, the company made progress on its new production facility in Alabama. It is expected to be a 225,000 square foot facility to fulfill US Air Force needs.

The construction is expected to be finished in 2021. Executive Vice President, Frank St. John, explained, “All our employees come to work with an unwavering commitment to help our customers succeed in their mission to create a more secure and prosperous world.”
