    Thats why the murders in the national embarrassment called Chicago are rarely on the national news, its so commonplace its considered just part of normal life there........but the pols and the commies want everyone else's guns.

    Not on my watch.

    Media also has a tenancy to bury "workplace violence" incidents, which this clearly is.

    Come Monday the story will be forgotten when word breaks that some Democrat rep from Hawaii files the first article of impeachment against Trump.

    It should not but probably will. What matters is "suppressor" is in several of the stories. The firearm prohibition horde can seize upon this as a way to mete out punishment to firearm owners.

    Yes. Or this could be the last opportunity we have to educate people that suppressors don't silence things and make little difference to anything other than ear drums.

    People heard gun fire. Loud gun fire.

    Facts, yeah that’ll work.

    Gun owners like suppressors, that’s all they need to know to hate them.

    Did 'silencer' make a difference in Virginia Beach carnage?
    Did 'silencer' make a difference in Virginia Beach carnage?

    “It is the nightmare scenario that gun-control advocates have warned about amid efforts in recent years to ease restrictions on the devices, which they say can help shooters escape detection and inflict more carnage. But gun-rights advocates and most law enforcement experts say DeWayne Craddock's use of a suppressor likely had no bearing on his ability to kill so many people in so little time on Friday...

    That could at least partially explain why survivors of the attack said they were caught off-guard and initially puzzled by what was happening. One described hearing something that sounded like a nail gun.

    "This is the concern we were talking about when Republicans were trying to deregulate silencers as 'ear protection'," said David Chipman, a retired agent with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and now senior policy adviser with Giffords, a gun-control lobbying group.

    "Especially on a handgun, a suppressor will distort the sound in such a way that it would not immediately be recognisable as gunfire to people who sort of know what that sound is."

    Oh yeah, how many people might misidentify the sound of a suppressed 45 but would “immediately” recognize the sound of an unsuppressed 45 indoors, perhaps on a different floor?

    About 90% of what's in those profiles is made up BS anyways. I trust those about as much as I trust Healey with my civil rights.

    Aurora ,Ill shooter back in Feb. was a digruntled employee at the Henry Pratt Co. was a man of color and had a previous charge against against him for domestic battery and was still able to acquire a firearm through legal channels.
    A year or so later the local PD sent him a notice in the mail stating he as was a prohibited person and his permit was no longer valid and to turn in his firearm.
    No follow up on this apparently

    The navy yard immediately comes to mind. It was a black perp there as well. There are several others as well. When the perp isn't a straight white male, the media tends to ignore any details about the perp and almost always the atrocity isn't newsworthy after a day or two.

    You're right, but it's also my position that your rights would always be under attack anyways.

    Now the larger 'gun violence 'epidemic' is getting the press. That's always in fashion.

    Long Island rail road shooter was black.
    20 years later: Long Island Rail Road shooting remembered as day killer Colin Ferguson went off the rails

    Media has been pushing it as a white guy thing for a long time, same as serial killers. Hear something often enough and people start to believe it to be true.

    Not sure if it counts as "this kind" but the DC sniper was a team of "non whites" if i recall correctly.

    Yeah, not in my feed at all, and the sheeple aren't complaining either, so they're clearly being good little media followers

    I remember the DC snipers well, the top story went from the upcoming invasion of Iraq to the snipers for about 2 months. Funny thing is that once they were caught, about a week after, it went right back to Iraq and later the Laci Peterson disappearance.

    Had the snipers been White guys and their victims largely Black, that would have been a a talking point repeated ad nauseum for months prior to the 94 AWB expiration and would still be brought up by anti's just like Columbine.
