More fake news
« on: October 13, 2021, 10:28:12 AM »

This article claims two people were killed at a USPS facility in Memphis. We all know that's impossible, because there's a law that says no guns are allowed in USPS facilities or on USPS property.

This is something that would, like some other USPS shootings in the past, be covered by the MSM and anti-gun screeds 24/7 in other times. It certainly is interesting to me how the MSM can control what is important and what is not.

I don't watch the news anymore.  Don't they still do the anti-gun commentary?  With all the gun sales over the last 2 years, maybe they know that few are listening.

Workplace murderers are very frequently black men.

If the killer is black, as is highly likely, this will be memory-holed.

No offense, Pb, but can you document those two statements in light of your "very frequently" and "as is highly likely" phrasing?

OK- look at this list of rampage killings at work with large number of casualities:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_rampage_killers_%28workplace_killings%29

Of those in the USA, 21% are perpetrated by black men.  Black people make up around 12-13% of the population in the USA.  That's all I have.

And we all know the media gives little attention to crimes committed by favored groups.

*edit* It looks like the perp was white, so we will get to enjoy hearing about it ad naseum.

True for over all murders but they're talking about workplace murders specifically

Wait, workplace.. mostly white and not.........must resist attempt at bad taste joke.
