If a white guy, using what liberals call an assault weapon, shot and killed 3 people on a bus, it would be huge news with tons of outrage and plenty of liberals calling the NRA terrorists. A black guy used what liberals call an assault weapon to murder 3 people (qualifies as a mass shooting) on a bus in Illinois and nobody on the left gives a crap. Have we reached the point were mass shootings are only bad when white people do them? It appears so.
The Rockford Register reports that a black man opened fire on a bus in Rockford, IL on Saturday, killing three people. The news has a little issue with the math:
Three people on a private, adult-themed charter bus were fatally shot early Saturday morning and the shooter, who also was aboard the bus, remains at large, Rockford police Chief Dan O’Shea said.
Police are looking for 22-year-old Raheem D. King, of Rockford, who is wanted on four counts of first-degree murder.
If he killed 3 people, why is is wanted on 4 counts of 1st degree murder? Also, what is an adult-themed party bus? Are there children-friendly party busses? Actually, I’m assuming this particular party involved strippers and/or prostitutes.
King used an assault rifle to open fire inside the bus while it was traveling in the area of Auburn Street and North Johnson Avenue, police said.
Does it seem weird to anyone else that this guy was on an adult-themed party bus and no one had a problem with him holding a rifle? Like if you try to bring a rifle, assault or not, onto a bus with strippers, doesn’t someone say, “hey, how about you leave that thing at home?”
Everything about this is completely bizarre: A man killed 3 people with a scary-looking semi-automatic rifle and the news and liberals don’t care. This dude got on an adult-themed party bus strapped with possibly an AR-15 and none of the other partiers cared. He killed three people in a mass shooting and even the cops don’t think it’s all that urgent because 2 days later he’s still at large.
A mass shooting, according to the FBI, is a single event with a single shooter killing 3 or more people. This was a mass shooting and it involved a gun that liberals want to ban because they think it looks scary and was designed for the battlefield not party busses. For what reason would they not be exploiting the victims to push their unconstitutional gun control agenda?
I think this is a nothing story because the shooter was black and the victims were probably also black. White guys killing people is an outrage, but black-on-black violence is a taboo. It’s actually racist on the left to even mention when black people kill other black people. Despite the fact that the majority of gun-related murders are like this, the left only wants you to think white racists and their “weapons of war” are the real problem in this country.
