Now people are ACTIVELY hunting for any story having anything remotely to do with anyone involved in firearms having anything bad happen to them.
3 months ago this story probably wouldn't have been posted to FR, and you never would have known about it.
Yep, kind of like the anti-frackers looking for any tiny earthquake as proof of the evils of fracking. Suddenly you see 1.1 earthquakes in the news even though in the past, they wouldn’t even make a USGS monitor report.
Yes, this story would have been posted. He’s not a nobody. He’s well known and respected around here.
That’s the thing: all of these guys are. Noveske, Kyle, FPSRussia, Ayoob, 1-2 others ... They’d all garner multiple FR threads. They all went (Ayoob’s honorable mention included) within days of each other. And they’re all names which some non-shooter tasked with identifying “insider leaders” would come up with. The list might seem a bit odd to those of us inside this box, but makes a certain sense as viewed from outside by someone looking to disrupt.
Odd coincidence I hope.
I’m not one for conspiracy theories (fond of shredding them instead).
Keep an eye on the news; one more such incident and methinks things will get very ugly very fast.
