    Also, which you won’t see on the MSM, there was a mass shoot.ing in Brooklyn, Yup, the city where it’s impossible to own and/or carry a fire.arm. In an illegal gambling den, someone thought they were cheated and shot up the place putting down 4 and injuring 3. But no one is on their knees screaming “why” so it will just get lumped into the anti-libertys stats of “a mass shoot.ing every day in the US”

    Meanwhile in Chicago. . . oh wait. . Nadler said you can’t redflag gang members because it will violate their due process.

    As a NRA member, I’m curious if the shooter was a NRA member. Or if the firearm used was lawfully acquired or lawfully owned.

    After all, the mayor of Philadelphia recently said NRA members were domestic terrorists.

    Guess he didn’t learn from San Francisco…

      My bad, it was Representative Cruz that said that. The mayor just said it was the NRA’s fault that bad guys had guns and committed crimes with them.
