A mass shooting a day so far this year

Breon Tre'Vaunt "Lucky" Gates, 27, was the first mass shooting death in 2022. He was one of four people shot in a New Year's Day in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Yes, Kenosha. That Kenosha. The one BLM rioters tried to burn to the ground after police shot a violent black man who was trying to abduct 7 children.

Breon Gates died in the year's first a mass shooting, which is defined by Gun Violence Archive as a shooting in which there are 4 or more casualties. The gunman wounded 3 others in a 4 AM shooting in a sports bar. 

Kenosha Police Lt. Joseph Nosalik told the Kenosha News, "We believe that everybody that was shot knows each other in one form or another. It’s disappointing that still people choose to settle disagreements with guns other than with diplomatic conversation and critical thinking."

His obituary said, Gates "graduated from Waukegan High School, class of 2014. After high school he worked in the food service industry as a cook and baker. His hidden passion was baking, for his sunshine "mom", dad and sisters. He enjoyed being with his family and cherished being a dad and uncle. Lucky was always surrounded by music and marched to the beat of his own drum. Very mischievous and a big jokester, he was always out to play practical jokes on his sisters, family and friends. He was a young man filled with joy overflowing, awaiting the arrival of his son Breon Jr. next month."

In life, he had family and friends.

In death, he is just another black man gunned down likely by another black man. Roughly half the murders in this country are young black men killing black people. You never hear of them because to the media and liberals they are nobodies.

Ah, but Trayvon Martin, Michael D. Brown and Saint George Floyd are household names because they served a political purpose. These thugs were lionized by the media because they advanced the gun control and anti-police cause.

New York City put statues of Thomas Jefferson and Teddy Roosevelt in storage, but by golly, there's a shrine to Floyd in a park.

The BLM riots resulted in the deaths of thousands of black men because Black Lives Matter is a lie. These ghouls exploit certain deaths to advance policies that actually put black lives at risk.

The Gun Violence Archive recorded 27 mass shootings in the first 23 days of 2022. 29 people died mostly in black neighborhoods, including 10 in two mass shootings on Sunday.

This is in winter when gun murders are lowest. Wait till summer when the bullets will really fly.

The archive reported that the annual mass shootings between 2014 and 2019 ranged from 272to 419.

In 2020, gunmen committed 611 mass shootings.

Last year, 693.

We went from 15,473 gun murders in 2019 to 19,488 in 2020 to 20,788 last year.

Democrats blame covid. But gun suicides did not rise. There were 24,090 in 2019 and 24,090 last year. In 2020, there were 24,156 gun suicides.

No, the sudden rise in mass shootings in black neighborhoods is on BLM riots, the media that led and called them "mostly peaceful protests," and on the politicians who demonized the police.

Kevin Downey Jr. at PJ Media wrote, "I must say, the Democrats are masterful at making their voters hate Republicans even while liberal ideals are getting black people killed in record numbers, and turning blue cities into crime-ridden flea-pits."

More than a half-century ago, Elvis sang a song that sadly is still relevant today.

RIP, Breon Gates.

  1. We had one in Montgomery, 1 dead 6 wounded. The shooter has been bailed out twice, and our DA isn't a Soros guy. Think of it .. shoot 7, 1 dead- in a bowling alley- and he was out in 24 hours. Per capita, our murder rate is exceeding Chicago.

  2. And, again, most (if not all of this) mayhem is due to drug trafficking. If we could get rid of substance abuse, these problems would solve themselves.

    1. In the dust up to the Vietnam war the CIA was trafficking heroin. I am sure it never stopped. Many reports of the same activity from Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan. It is your government poring drugs from all over the world into these cities with the aid of China and the cartels. With more drugs the need for police grows and thus perpetuates the deep state. And what does the CIA, FBI and DEA do with all their profits?

  3. "In the Ghetto" was written by Mac Davis, who was a session musician in LA at the time. He was sitting in the breakroom with Nancy Sinatra and told her he had this song that he thought would be great for Elvis, but he couldn't get past Col. Tom Parker, Elvis' manager.

    "Got a dime?" she said to him. He pulled out a dime and handed it to her.

    Nancy walked to the pay phone, dropped in the dime and called Elvis' private number. He answered and had Davis sing the song for him over the phone. Elvis said immediately, "I want that song." The rest is history.....

    1. I worked the Lighting on many Mac Davis shows at the MGM hotel. Closing nights were practical joke nights. Mac always started singing the song, In the Ghetto, sitting on a stool in one downlight. As you know, the first lyrics after the intro are "As the snow flies...".
      We had rigged up a box full of styrofoam snow, directly over Mac's stool.
      He sang... we dropped the snow.
      He started laughing so much he couldn't finish the song.
      Yeah, I have pictures of it.
      RIP Mac Davis, he was a great guy to work for. He would rent out the hockey rink after the show at 2am and all the cast and crew would go skate.

  4. When laws aren't enforced, politics make the decisions and useful idiots are manipulated to do the dem/socialist/communist's bidding there's nothing left to do but nightly body counts.

  5. Big D, gotta share this…when your first post about Bigly Lips Floyd (the one where you basically said he died from Fentanyl and not Chauvin’s knee) hit the net, I felt I HAD to share it with my brother who’s lived in MPLS for 30 years. It was a sane, solid piece. Well, he lost his shite. It was then I understood that A) The town had changed his political views - RADICALLY; B) It was useless trying to present an alternate view of his “reality”; and C) Given his extensive community involvement, some of it in leadership positions, that city was FOOKED. I’d like to say it was a shame, but I can’t because it really isn’t. God gave us all the very special gift of FREE WILL, which we use or abuse. And in this present time, I can’t shed any tears about the abusers. FOLLOW THE FOOKING LAW.

    1. Z, I feel for you as to your brother. Hard to deal with.
      Don't feel useless/hopeless, though.
      You have every right to continue to love him right through that ugly Leftist crust that claims to have encased him. Psalms 62:11--"God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God." Stick to your spiritual guns, Z. Peace and blessings to you.

  6. We are even having "these kind of shootings" in Montreal and it is gang related. I think the police have pulled back (or are really out of touch) due to worries about racism.

  7. And that Elvis song is great. Touching and true.

    1. I love the song. I also love Paul Shanklin’s version done for Rush Limbaugh - In a Yugo.

  8. The increase around the country with gun violence is planned and encouraged by democrat policies. The idea is to make things so bad so they can pass more gun control (ie. confiscation) legislation. Even some semi-reasonable people will throw up their hands and say what else can we do when things get even uglier.
    I don't really think this will work but this is their game plan.

    1. I don't think it will work either...especially the number of Libs that are arming themselves. Even my Sister, who's a terrible person when it comes to politics, has armed herself. Never thought that would happen...

    2. An ultra liberal friend in Florida just bought a handgun and is going through the protocols to get a concealed carry permit. She still babbles on about Trump and DeSantis, but this is monumental.

    3. Any time someone says bad things about Trump I ask them to give me just one policy he implemented they didn't like to cause such hate. They stutter and stammer. And then say mean tweets. I then ask to give just one example of such tweet and how it ruined your day when you read it.. Crickets.
      I'm tired of the Trump bashing caused by brainwashing media.

    4. TO--I do the same thing. When someone says "Trump lies", I say "give me 3 specific examples". I've been doing this for several years now, and not ONE person has even been able give an answer.

      Some months back, someone did a deep dive on that assertion that "Trump had lied 20,000 times". They looked at the list of 20,000 so-called "lies", and found that 8,000 of them pertained to variations of Trump saying the Russia collusion story was false. But Trump was telling the Truth!

      So we learned that what the Left calls "a lie", is "any statement that contradicts the Marxist Left (liberal) narrative". And now they're doing the same thing with COVID.

      The Left has sunk into a heavy reliance on these Mindless Mantras (Trump lies, the election was not stolen, vaccine "misinformation", etc.). And despite all the Mindlessness, many folks on the Left simultaneously believe themselves to have superior intelligence. Deep, deep, self-delusion.

    5. Even some semi-reasonable people will throw up their hands and say what else can we do when things get even uglier.

      We can Try what has a chance of working. Don't go anywhere without a gun. The average person is a law abiding person. If we are, most of us, carrying, then
      The Good Guy with a Gun
      Will be more and more common. That suppresses crime.

  9. Too bad his nickname didn't work for him.

    the Democrats are masterful at making their voters hate Republicans

    If they're so masterful, why are we looking at a possible record sweep in this year's elections?

  11. Hard to find sympathy for the dem cities that are being ruined by policies designed to enslave the population.
    It's not like they can't vote, probably more along the lines they can't think.
    PDJT had the country humming and people of every stripe could find jobs and did. Then they listened to the stenographers of the dem controlled msm and voted for Fuck joe biden* and things went downhill. Quickly.
    Tough, I used to feel for them, but in the almost 60 years after LBJ and his spin on getting the Civil Rights Act passed (without heavy repub votes there still wouldn't be CRA) one would wish they'd actually take a hard look at their lives and what the politicians they elected have done to their lives.

  13. Do you think "Lucky" would have been luckier if he were at home with the mother of his now fatherless child instead of at "Sports Bar" at 4am? I do. Was the murderer apprehended or was this another one of those snitches get stiches events? I would also be interested in knowing how many of those 20,788 were black or killed by a black man.

  14. The only way this stops is for conservatives to hold liberals accountable for this madness.
