Seventeen victims with multiple shooters. Read about that in the media? Thought not.
From Bob Owens at Bearing Arms:
BLACK LIVES DON’T MATTER: Obsessed With Planned Parenthood, Media Ignores Larger Mass Shooting
Despite a complete media blackout by law enforcement officers investigating the case, the mainstream media remains obsessed with the idea of selling the public on the idea that a Planned Parenthood location in Colorado Springs was the focus of a mass murder’s rage on Friday.
The known facts that have leaked out, however, don’t support this narrative.
Bob proceeds to dismantle the killer's connection to Planned Parenthood - it was just an unfortunate choice of buildings. He continues with this:
As the media obsesses over the dozen shot in Colorado Springs, they’ve given scant attention to another mass shooting, once with both more victims (17) and more suspects, some of whom remain on the loose.
Because it doesn’t suit their political needs, the Bunny Friend Park Shooting has been effectively memory-holed.
Police say Joseph “Moe” Allen is one of an unknown number of shooters who opened fire in Bunny Friend Park on Nov. 22, wounding 17 people in an attack that made international headlines. But Allen’s mother says he was in Texas at the time, shopping with his pregnant wife for baby clothes.
Her comments came hours after Allen, 32, appeared in Orleans Parish magistrate court, where public records show a judge set his bond at $1.7 million on 17 counts of attempted first-degree murder. He also is being held without bond on an unspecified out-of-state warrant.
It’s all about narratives, folks.
Far more people are murdered in an average weekend in Chicago in petty gang-related violence (8 dead, 20 wounded is this last weekend’s butcher’s bill), or in a bad weekend in any one of a half-dozen other cities, but the taking of minority lives by other minority suspects truly doesn’t matter to those in the mainstream media.
They only seem to care if the fatalities can be used to advance an agenda of gun bans and gun control. Focusing on the more routine slaughters that make up the vast majorities of murders in America would support increased police presence and lower tolerance of gang-related crime, which would point out the inept leadership in most of the high-crime cities dominated by decades of mismanagement by anti-gun Democrats.
We can’t have that now, can we?
Meanwhile, the last Black Friday saw the highest number of FBI checks for people buying firearms:
Record for U.S. gun background checks set on Black Friday
More U.S. residents applied to purchase handguns, rifles and other firearms from licensed dealers on Black Friday than any other day on record, according to Federal Bureau of Investigation data released this week.
Black Friday, the day after the U.S. Thanksgiving Day holiday, is the traditional start of the U.S. holiday shopping season, with sharp retail discounts on merchandise.
On Nov. 27, a total of 185,345 applicants were processed through the FBI's National Instant Criminal Background Check System, which determines whether a person is eligible to purchase guns from a licensed dealership, the FBI said in a statement.
Say what you might but Barry is the best gun salesman that the USA has ever had...
