There's No Way the Media Is Touching the Latest Trans Mass Shooter Story




Mia had the details this afternoon about the wannabe transgender mass shooter, who was arrested but known to authorities for years due to aberrant and violent behavior. The FBI picked up Elizabeth Ballesteros West, formerly Francisco Frank Paramo, of Cottage Grove, Oregon, for allegedly plotting a mass slaughter of supposed ‘transphobes.’ West also shoved a shogun into the mouth of his father in 1993 and pulled the trigger, though the firearm failed to fire.

Mia noted the interviews the FBI had with West, the long history of disturbing posts, and the research he did to commit suicide—this person was severely mentally ill. You have mental health playing a major factor here, too. Either way you slice it, the media has zero interest in reporting on this story if they hope to weaponize it against Republicans.

I’ll use the lexicon of the PC police here: It seems every mass shooting, including attempts, featuring these individuals who are part of the alternate lifestyle is more insane than the last. Sure, the Left is going to point out that more ‘cisgender’ people have committed mass shootings. The problem is that these same folks have been peddling the narrative that mass shootings are an exclusively white, male, and Republican problem. At times, it’s been framed as some social defect or an illness. We now have multiple transgender mass shootings and like-minded plots being unearthed, and it’s another reminder of how a) authorities seem to know about all the perpetrators, regardless of how they identify, and b) how mental health always seems to be at the forefront of all these shootings.

It's not a new story, but one that never gets old because the establishment media will never cease protecting the holy grail of liberal narratives.

Mass Shooting in Illinois Ends in Suicide in Texas - Gains Nearly NO Attention in the Media




Our 'betters' in the legacy media never hesitate to jump on a shooting, so it was odd to this writer when she encountered a story from The Associated Press about a mass shooting in Chicago that garnered basically no national attention whatsoever from the MSM. Nothing like what we typically see with shootings of this sort.

Between Sunday and Monday (January 21st and 22nd), a 23-year-old man named Romeo Nance, the alleged suspect, shot and killed 8 people. Police report that the victims were all related to Nance. A ninth person was wounded.

The victims were found Sunday and Monday at three separate homes.







Now, normally a shooting that took the lives of eight people would be on every major network, and our elected 'leaders' would never let us hear the end of it. So why is this shooting different?







The Associated Press has also very subtly shifted the terms here, using 'mass killing' rather than 'mass shooting'. However, since there is no one set definition of 'mass shooting', it's not entirely incorrect. The AP has compiled a database, along with USA Today in a partnership with Northeastern University and defines a mass killing as 'an attack in which four or more people have died, not including the perpetrator, within a 24-hour period.'







This brings up an excellent point. 'Roughly 12 percent of mass killings are mass public shootings (incidents that occur in the absence of other criminal activity such as robberies, drug deals, and gang-related turf wars) in which a gun is used to kill four or more victims at a public location. Most mass killings are familicides (murders of family members or intimate partners) and felony-related killings (such as robberies gone awry or gang-related “turf battles”).'

This slight distinction is likely why these types of mass shootings are not treated the same way as instances such as Columbine or Las Vegas, and yet they are counted in the statistics regarding mass shootings. This is intentionally deceptive and misleading in a deliberate effort to make mass public shootings seem far more common than they actually are.









This writer agrees. A killing that involves four or more victims in more than one location in a relatively short period of time are typically classified as spree killings, but we're getting off into the weeds now.

Nance fled Illinois after the murders and was discovered by authorities in Texas. He was confronted and surrounded at a gas station where he ended his own life. No motive has been uncovered as of this writing.

Nance also had a criminal record and was out on bond for allegedly shooting at a car with a woman inside last year.

Illinois likely has red flag laws that were ignored by the judge letting this guy out until trial.

What we need I'd judge F'd up laws where they lose their seat and can be used. Might make some think more before deciding to let people go.

What kind of fool goes on a shoot out and takes his kid with him?
And who shot the kid? Him or the police guards.

This is an Assault Rifle .... Heavily Regulated

The StG 44 (abbreviation of Sturmgewehr 44, "assault rifle 44") is a German assault rifle developed during World War II by Hugo Schmeisser. It is also known by its early designations as the MP 43 and MP 44 (Maschinenpistole 43 and 44). The StG 44 was an improvement of an earlier design, the Maschinenkarabiner 42(H).

The StG 44 was the first successful assault rifle, with features including an intermediate cartridge, controllable automatic fire, a more compact design than a battle rifle with a higher rate of fire, and being designed primarily for hitting targets within a few hundred metres.[5] Other rifles at the time were designed to hit targets of over a thousand meters, but this was found to be in excess of the range in which most enemy engagements actually took place.

The StG 44 fulfilled its role effectively, particularly on the Eastern Front, offering a greatly increased volume of fire compared to standard infantry rifles. The StG largely influenced the Soviet AK-47, introduced two years after the war concluded.[5][6] The StG's influence can still be seen in modern assault rifles, which, after World War II, became the global standard for infantry rifles.[5]


An Assault Rifle has Controllable AUTOMATIC FIRE


This is an AR-15, Which is NOT An Assault Rifle, This Weapon is Semi Automatic NOT Automatic

Personally, I don’t think anybody needs a gun. I wish we could ban them all, but I’ll start with assault weapons.
What is an "assault weapon"? Aren't all firearms "assault weapons"?

By the way, did you notice that the number of states with Constitutional Carry is now up to 28? Pretty cool, huh?
