Gun Grabbers Respond to the Assault on Nakatomi Plaza

The harrowing events of the siege on Los Angeles’s Nakatomi Plaza took place 31 years ago. That tragic incident and the heroic response by one off-duty police officer were recounted in a now beloved documentary that recounts what is widely considered to be a Christmas miracle.


We can all be thankful, however, that those terrifying events didn’t take place in 2019. In this age of social media, we’re all too familiar with politicians and the gun control community opportunistically using the acts of madmen like Hans Gruber and his band of terrorists to push their anti-gun agenda.

If the Nakatomi Plaza assault took place today, what would their response look like? Here are some very possible likely tweets:


Let’s not forget HRC:



For our readers in Illinois:


Merry Die Hard day.

      I could stand more of these, but it’s just a matter of time before some millennial fails to get the joke and gets obnoxious about it.

      1. avatar Gov. William J Le Petomane says:

        The difference between the world today and the world of 40-50 years ago isn’t that there’s more stupid people now, but that nobody paid any attention to their incessant whining back then.

          Oh, I don’t know about that. The stupid is strong in a lot of young folks these days.

        3. avatar Gov. William J Le Petomane says:

          They’re not stupid, they’re mentally lazy. They’ve never been challenged. Never had to back up their ideas with reason or logic. And if you do challenge them they run to their ‘safe spaces’ and accuse you of ‘racism’ or ‘hate speech’. This is what you get when you infantilize your children all the way through college, you get full grown babies.

        As the average Leftard is gullible,facts and figures do not play a part in reality,it makes on think of War Of The World by Orson Wells anything is possible to a Leftard.
        They would Feelz that Hans Grubber was mistreated in his youth and somebody or someone was responsible for it but Hans bears no personal responsibility for his actions. Yippee Ki Yay !

        1. avatar CAP says:

          Here’s a fact for ya: “War of the Worlds” was written by H.G. Wells, not Orson Welles.

          Now that’s irony.

        2. avatar JR Pollock says:

          HG wells wrote the book, but it was the radio broadcast in the form of a play thatcaused all the panic. That was produced and directed by, and starred Orson Welles.

      Well done TTAG! These humorless people are ripe for parodies, as you very effectively proved above. They are begging to be ridiculed.

        H.G. Wells authored the work….Orson Wells created and performed the radio adaption of it…and took a lot of heat for the panic it created because of the realistic format….

    3. avatar VerendusAudeo says:

      No we don’t. These pieces only exist so toxic cunts can self-gratify in the comments section. There’s no value in this kind of content. Stick to the truth, not little stories that make you feel clever.

      1. avatar Sigiloso says:

        So having a laugh and showing how they ridiculously respond to every incident in which they can exploit for their agenda and political purposes is a bad thing?

        The word pu$sy will put you in review abyss, but this a$$ clown can say cunt?

        You need some introspective time TTAG.

        So you admit you’re a toxic cunt? Cool.

      4. avatar Veritas et Lux says:

        VerendusAudeo, if that is your real name,

        Sarcasm has been the most effective tool of mocking the unintelligent authoritarians since, at least, the time of Plato who knew laughter expressed scorn.

        The fact you don’t understand that Francis, is a mark of a low IQ.

        1. avatar Mad Max says:

          That’s the problem with sarcasm; those that it is directed at aren’t intelligent enough to understand it.

          That is especially true of the woke leftist.

        Yippee kaye eyyyy, mother flinger… or something of those sorts. Posts like these do not bring out the anti’s, in fact, I think they bring out the pro 2a. I grew up with diehard, loved the first 2. Diehard 1 is a Christmas movie…. period. Sure, there are some firearm representations that don’t meet spec, how many movies did? Especially then? I’m still waiting on my ceramic/porcelain Austrian piece. (That may be diehard 2)

        1. avatar frank speak says:

          the first movie suffered a serious technical flaw that was corrected in the second one…and became something of an inside joke in a subsequent flick…do you really think modern day terrorists…with state-of-the-art weaponry and equipment…would communicate on cb radios????????

      7. avatar Hannibal says:

        I have to agree. It’s circle-jerking and nothing more. Nothing informative, nothing useful. There’s nothing wrong with being amused by it (although past the first couple of tweets it seems to lose any actual funniness) but we definitely don’t “need” more of it.

      8. avatar Dude says:

        Don’t like this article? Don’t read it. Problem solved.
        Now stop telling people to don’t make nuthin’ you don’t like.
        Merry Christmas.

      God’s honest truth…

      Today my wife received some distressing family news while I was out running errands. Distressing enough that it pissed her off and kinda ruined her day (Christmas Eve, of all things).

      As I came home an hour ago and walked in, she was about half an hour into Die Hard, saying she really needs to see some bad guys die right now. As I write this, the Feds are about to storm the entrance of the Nakatomi Building.

      Man, I love that woman…gotta go…the action’s about to start!!

      1. avatar I Haz A Question says:

        And yes, for any of you who read my comment from yesterday and caught it, that means we’ve watched it twice.

  8. avatar Gov. William J Le Petomane says:

    They never seem to mention the fact that the Nakatomi Plaza was a gun free zone.

    1. avatar SAFEupstateFML says:

      Hey they did their due diligence how could they know Glock produced a ceramic model worth more than a monthly salary that they could smuggle past the metal detector. If anything this shows we need import oversight.

  9. avatar eagle10 says:

    They did not have ‘illegal’ guns at Nakatomi – they had ‘Undocumented’ guns. Since we do not have any illegal migrants/etc – we have undocumented migrants.

    Therefore no guns are illegal – they are only undocumented!
    Take that Demotaters!

        There you are. I’ve been trolling for you. You still ain’t sold me on a double edge knife over a Bowie type knife. Them Fairbane knives are sweet but I sure do like a Kabar field knife. I can probably chop through a bunch of brush or skin a deer better with a camp knife better then a double edge. I’d think to skin somthin with a double edge knife you’d have to keep it mighty sharp. I ain’t never kilt nobody with a knife that I know of, stabbed a guy with s switchblade , he got away but mighta died later,? I’d like to be sold on a double edge but if I lay my money down I buy quality and I don’t wanna have a Bullshit moment

        1. avatar strych9 says:

          *snicker* Harsh.

          Generally, when it comes to rock-solid performance, excellence in craftsmanship and the best materials money can buy I go with a knife from a gas station for $3.99. Those $4.99 jobs are just overpriced crap.

          Sure, $3.99 barely buys a cup of coffee these days but, goddamn if it doesn’t get you a fine blade. Cheap because of child-labor in China but, fuck me, they’re well made. Those little kiddie fingers do some seriously bangup precision work until they’re lost to some piece of machinery.

    Someone should post a fake post on Twitter and Facebook about a “real” attack on “Nakatomi Plaza” *without* mentioning the movie – and then post the responses. Fake news at its best. LOL

      Pricelless !

  12. avatar dwb says:

    Lol, good article.

    Best part is that the cancel culture leftist gun grabbers will get all butthurt and not understand humor.

    1. avatar Green Mtn. Boy says:

      It is most enjoyable to laugh at butthurt Leftards,need a lift in sprits,go to you tube and watch clips of butthurt Leftards the night President Trump was elected…..That’s Entertainment !

      1. avatar Tuck Frump says:

        Trump’s heroism in ‘Nam, coupled with the fact he’s a morally upstanding self made man, make him worthy of our collective awe, deference and respect!

          One thing I will give him he brings out the butthurt from the Leftard’s.

          Don’t particularly care for the guy and pretty sure anything Trump has done for gun rights was purely accidental. But so many idiots despise and are obsessed with him Trump is getting my vote again. He must be doing something right to piss of so many retards.

    McLain was your typically poorly trained cop. He could got this over a lot faster by not advertising that he had taken out one Gruber’s team and gotten a machinegun. For only $500 and a weekend my elite training course could have turned John McClain into a Tier 1 Operator.

    SGM Jonas Blaine USA(Ret) Operator of the Unit Tactical Training Center

    1. avatar Miner49er says:

      You are correct, the grandstanding by this actor was self-defeating. Never telegraph your capabilities to the enemy, one of the most basic rules of warfare.

      This is just an ego gratification for small minds, not some documentary with excellent strategy and tactics to learn.

      1. avatar tdiinva says:

        You do realize that SGM Blaine is a character in the TV series the Unit, right? You can spoof both sides here. Nobody is taking tactical lessons from Die Hard except a humorless lefty low IQ goober like you.

    2. avatar Someone says:

      Not always. You can avoid costly fighting and demoralize your enemy to retreat if he thinks you are strong. Even better if you can make him think that you are much stronger then you actually are.

      1. avatar Miner49er says:

        Yes, you are correct.

        He should have used this sign is an opportunity to miss lead his opponent about the strength and disposition of his forces.

        The sign should have read ‘Now WE have TWO machine guns’.

      2. avatar tdiinva says:

        This wasn’t one of those occasions

    3. avatar frank speak says:

      McClain sure seems to get a lot of mileage out of that semi-automatic…while the bad guys are armed with everything up to and including bazookas…yet he always wins?????

  15. avatar Miner49er says:

    So now the TTAG folks are extolling the virtues of a Hollywood fantasy.

    All those California elite liberal sure have your number, they can spin a yarn to glorify even the most fragile ego.

    Meanwhile, in liberal Hollywood, filmmakers are honoring a real hero who saved lives, not some make-believe character in a two bit action movie.

    “A hero of this galaxy is now also a hero of one far, far away.

    The makers of Star Wars have created a character in honor of Riley Howell, according to CNN affiliate WLOS.
    Howell was a 21-year-old ROTC cadet and student at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He died in April while tackling a gunman on campus.
    Authorities have said that Howell saved the lives of others when he charged the shooter who had opened fire with a pistol in a classroom.”

    1. avatar Phil says:

      If only he had a gun on that gun free campus. So the movie is about ending gun free zones?

    2. avatar Someone says:

      “He died in April while tackling a gunman on campus.”
      If only he wasn’t prohibited to carry some usefull self defense item that would allow him to neutralize the murderer, he would be still alive.

    I thought you were talking about Richard Jewell at first.
