    The Chicago Tribune ^ | October 13, 2019 | Alice Yin and Jeremy Gorner
    Three women and two men are dead in a shooting in a condominium building on Chicago’s Northwest Side by a neighbor who was known to have “anger management issues,” police said. A woman who had been in critical condition after a gunman opened fire in two units of a Dunning condo building died Sunday from her injuries, bringing the death toll to five from the Saturday night shooting rampage, police said. Authorities said the man left his condo in the 6700 block of West Irving Park Road in the Dunning neighborhood, went to a neighbor’s home in the same building...

    Police were warned that the gunman who killed seven people and wounded 25 in Texas last month was planning an attack eight years ago, according to newly revealed police reports. Seth Ator’s mother reported to cops in February 2011 that her son was refusing to take his mental health medication and had threatened to kill himself in a shootout with police, CNN reported. The worried mom shared a recording with cops, in which Ator declared “911 will bow down before me.” When officers in Amarillo, Texas, showed up to her home in 2011, they found what they interpreted as preparations...
  • Prozac Maker Paid Millions To Secure Favorable Verdict In Mass Shooting Lawsuit

    It was recently disclosed that Pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly paid millions of dollars to the victims of a mass shooter to cover up the connection between the mass shooter and prozac. Why are all mass shooters, past and present, always on some similar type of prescription drugs, most notably antidepressants? Everybody should know by now that pharmaceutical companies tend to be extremely unethical, and that they have a very tight stranglehold over government health regulatory agencies like the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). According to Robert F. Kennedy Jr., pharmaceutical companies...
  • Secret Service arrested El Paso shooting 'hero' as he was about to be honored by Trump

    Washington Examiner ^ | Sept. 10, 2019
    One of the people President Trump honored for his heroism during a mass shooting in an El Paso Walmart last month was arrested by the Secret Service during his visit to the White House on Monday due to an outstanding criminal warrant, law enforcement officials told the Washington Examiner. Police say his tale of heroics does not match video evidence. Chris Grant, 50, was shot in the ribs and a kidney during the Aug. 3 rampage that claimed 22 lives. He was not present for a White House ceremony Monday, but his mother Minnie Grant, 82, accepted a signed certificate...

    In a new video message released on the internet Friday, American-born al Qaeda spokesman Adam Gadahn calls on Muslims living in America to carry out deadly one-man terrorist acts using fully automatic weapons purchased at gun shows, and to target major institutions and public figures. "What are you waiting for?" asks Gadahn in English, and then adds that jihadis shouldn't worry about getting caught, since so many have been released. "Over these past few years, I've seen the release of many, many Mujahideen whom I had never even dreamed would regain their freedom." The two-part, two hour video appeared on...

    A potential mass shooting was averted last week when a father tipped off Fort Worth police about his son’s intent to buy guns and officers found the man, police said. The 27-year-old white male, whose identity wasn’t released, stated he was inspired by the recent shootings in Midland and Odessa and wanted to “kill as many” people as he could, according to Officer Buddy Calzada, a police spokesman. He has been checked into a local clinic to receive mental health care, police said. The father of the man called police last Tuesday, Sept. 3, and reported his son had withdrawn...

    Over the Labor Day weekend, Seth Aaron Ator shot and killed seven people. He wounded more than 20 others in his senseless rampage. Police killed him during his attack. Ator was a man marked with mental illness. As they searched his home, police noted that this man was on a downward spiral, which apparently culminated when he was fired from his job the day he committed his heinous crime. As the anti-gun Left mobilized again, many questions remained. How did Ator get a rifle? He failed a previous background check via mental health adjudication. Well, it seems Ator obtained his firearms...

    Iran has infiltrated a team of Quds Force terrorist leaders into the United States to attack from within in 2013, according to a source. The source within the office of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader of the Islamic regime, said the team is to create instability in America through terrorism should the U.S. fail to accept the regime’s illicit nuclear program, increase sanctions, confront Iran militarily or intervene in the Syrian civil war. Members of the team, no more than 10 Quds Force officers, each lead cells totaling about 50 terrorists already in the U.S. The source is risking...

    A neighbor of the Odessa mass shooter says she reported him to police last month — after he threatened her with a rifle for leaving trash near his property — but cops couldn’t find his house on account of it having no GPS address or electricity. The woman told CNN that Seth Ator, 36, would often sit on top of his home and shoot animals at night, which he would then go and retrieve afterwards. SNIP Ator would often sit and sleep inside his Toyota Camry with the heat on when the weather would get to cold, the woman said....

    An active shooter in Saturday's deadly attack in Odessa has been killed, according to Midland police. Odessa Police Chief Michael Gerke said five people were killed and 21 shooting victims in the area of Midland and Odessa. At a news conference Saturday, Gerke also says that at least three law enforcement officers were among those shot. The suspect is described as a white male in his mid-30s. He spoke after a chaotic afternoon during which police reported that a suspect hijacked a U.S. Postal Service vehicle and began firing at random in the area of Odessa and Midland, hitting multiple...

    A shooting that broke out over an argument at a 2-year-old's birthday party in Maryland sent seven people to the hospital on Saturday night. The shooting took place outside of an apartment complex in Camp Springs, where about 12 people were in attendance at the party. An individual approached the group of party-goers where allegedly "words were exchanged" and shots were fired into the group, according to Prince George’s County Police Chief Hank Stawinski. Of the seven shot, three are "more serious” and four are "less serious," Stawinski said. All were transported to the hospital and are expected to survive.

    Rodolfo Montoya, 37, who worked at the Long Beach Marriott, was taken into custody Tuesday at his home in Huntington Beach. Officers seized multiple high-powered firearms, including an assault rifle, 38 high-capacity magazines, and hundreds of rounds of ammunition, according to investigators. Police said Montoya told a coworker Monday that he planned to come into work and shoot everybody he saw at the hotel. Montoya was angry about a human resources issue, according to investigators. The coworker notified the hotel’s management team, who contacted police. Officers located Montoya and took him into custody the following day. He is being held...

    There are no sure solutions to mass attacks; one man with a weapon and motivated to kill is hard to stop. The rash of murders in El Paso, Dayton, Gilroy, and Chicago has delivered a wake-up call to a divided and angry America. There are no easy answers, but collectively searching for ways to make such attacks less likely is far more constructive than getting stuck in the current blame game! It’s easy for politicians to get coverage by blaming President Trump’s supposed “racism” while ignoring their own hateful rhetoric. The president is no more responsible for the El Paso...

    Kill every fascist,” mass shooter Connor Betts declared in 2018 on twitter, echoing a rallying cry of ANTIFA ideologues. Over the next year, his tweets became increasingly violent. “Nazis deserve death and nothing else,” he tweeted last October. We have been warning about the US domestic terror group known as ANTIFA for quite a few years now. Like the Ku Klux Klan, and because of their cowardly nature, they wear masks and hoods to hide their identities. The KKK wear white masks, and ANTIFA wears black masks, while both groups commit acts of mayhem while claiming to be something they’re...

    The liberal media is the arm of the Democratic Party and its agenda. That’s no secret, but if they think they can get away with what they’re doing with the Dayton shooting—they’re arrogance (or stupidity) has reached unprecedented levels. I mean there have been pretty explicit examples, but they there have been consistent ‘hold my beer’ moments, as the various arms of this corrupt enterprise seem to out-do one another in displaying said bias. In less than 24 hours, we had two brutal mass shootings. In all, 31 people have been killed and scores more injured. In El Paso, Texas, and...

    Although mass shootings account for a fraction of gun deaths in America and gun homicides are at historic lows, the terroristic nature of these crimes make them especially traumatic and destructive. The murderers, predominately young white men and loners with hateful, but often confused, ideologies, can strike anywhere. And that puts them everywhere.As much as people try to make sense of these events, to blame someone, these murderers have no real or tangible objectives other than death. Mass shootings arenÂ’t Donald TrumpÂ’s fault any more than they are Elizabeth WarrenÂ’s, despite the efforts of many in our parasitic political...
