Most members of the press believe that a fly fishing vest is bullet proof and should be outlawed. The trout of the world are in full support.

"He was not wearing a bullet-proof vest as previously reported."

just one sentence later...
"The shooter, wearing a white hockey mask, black clothing and a bullet proof vest, tore through the mall.."

mighty fine reporting there...

Three reporters are credited with writing the contradictory report.

Reports of a gun jam aren’t supported by the fact he shot himself, with the only weapon he had.

Wonder if he accidently hit the mag release and thought the chamber was empty?

It would be wonderful if ABC could keep their lies straight one sentence to the next.


The level of abject illiteracy in journalism is striking. Since journalists are mostly liberal and communist, and since Saul Alinsky teaches to make others live to their own standards, and also that mockery is the most effective weapon a man can wield, I have created the....

If he had of pulled this in West-Texas he would have been taken out from three different directions. And the ones who ran to their cars to retrieve their hide out piece would be mad because noboby waited on them before shooting him.

Pure speculation on my part, but looks American Indian to me.

If I'm right, wonder if he was spoon-fed racial grievance history in public school, and imagined himself taking "revenge" on white America?

Also wonder if he was was adopted. Again, pure speculation on my part.

Jacob Tyler Roberts, born March 16, 1990 died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound and the rifle was recovered at the scene.

Yet the police chief said he was not prepared to answer that question yet. They would not say he had shot himself or whether the LEOs shot him.

I think it was neither. I think it was a citizen who was carrying concealed and popped this kid. The police will have that person under wraps and are not ready to reveal this little fact to the media.

Theres a black man 57 who lives in Alabama named James Syler Robbins who belongs to the Tea Party is that close enough to tie rightwingers to the shooting?

“Court records show that Roberts and a woman, Hannah Shoemake, were evicted last summer from their Happy Valley apartment. “

I don’t think “guy lovers” would be into guns, most likely, he’s the “goth” type.

Of course the "journ-o-listas" at ABC did not post a photo, because the murderer is non-white.

actually those are called gauges (they produce a big whole in the ear lobe) rather than rings...

That was my thought too. Or the media already knows this tidbit but are allowing the lie to run around the world while truth is still getting dressed. Cant have CCW in a positive light.

don’t give leftards any ideas.

next will be laws that every gun has to come with a 1000 LB safe.

the safe will be made by gubmint employees in Pelosi’s district. they won’t work well, but will cost $10k a piece.

State Senator Ginny Burdick has already drafted a bill to limit the number of bullets a gun can hold. She emailed her colleges this morning to get co-signers.

I tried looking on Facebook and no luck finding a Jake, Jacob, or Jacob Tyler Roberts. Scrubbed already?

Ginny Burdick is a piece of work. Never met a anti gun law she didn’t like. Fascist.

Anyone find anything on the Hanna Hussein mentioned on the White pages as an associate?

I don’t want to cause someone a problem who didn’t have anything to do with this, but we haven’t found out who he stole the gun from yet. There may be a reason why we haven’t found out yet.

Was the gun reported stolen and how long ago? Was the gun legally registered? The press seems to be ignoring the usual questions about this shooter.
