    How The Buffalo Mass Shooter Got Exactly What He Wanted   by Colion Noir

    Right now, America is being trolled by an 18 year old psychopath and he has a front row seat to the show.

    Everything this guy did was designed to get media attention and drive the biggest divide possible by placating to every talking point the anti-gun far left has.

    He left an 180 page manifesto, that’s a book.

    He even wrote it in question and answer form like he was being interviewed and he made it a point to answer every question you’d think to ask someone who just slaughtered people in cold blood and hit every single possible racist talking point, and then says all his radicalization happened online during COVID.

    He explains why he chose the weapons he used using every single anti-gun buzz word used by the anti-gun lobby. Hell it sounded like they wrote it for him.

    Then he literally scribbles every racist word or phrase he could think of on the guns he used and then to top it all off, this walking human fart of a lunatic live streamed the entire massacre.

    He packaged together an online mass shooting starter kit, gave it to the media and said make me famous and make me some more mass shooters and the media said “Ok”. 

    On May 13, 2022 nobody knew who the hell this kid was, but by May 14th, he was the most famous person in the world and by May 15th,  we knew every thought and desire he had because they were combing through his 180 page written self interview like it was some long lost text from the communist manifesto.

    He created a snuff film and it got passed around like it was the the missing Ray J and Kim Kardashian sex tape.

    It’s not like the footage was caught on surveillance cameras, he live streamed it.

    Now I can’t go on the internet without seeing videos of him in court, articles about what we know about the shooter, who was his mama, and what did he eat that day.

    Then to make themselves feel better about sensationalizing a clout chasing psychopath, the media sprinkles a couple videos about the people who were actually killed.

    We gave him exactly what he wanted, the same thing I’ve been saying for 9 years now:

    He wanted to solidify himself as the architect of how to become more famous than ever by committing mass shootings and it worked!

    This guy was nothing more than a copycat.

    His 180 page manifesto was mostly plagiarized from another mass shooters manifesto and video of a mass shooting that he only knew about because, of course, the media sensationalized and made that guy famous.

    He literally says that the previous shooters live stream is what started everything you see here https://www.jpost.com/international/article-706733.

    He wanted infamy he just used his new found racism to justify his actions. This was about him and making himself famous.

    He saw a playbook and copied it. Nothing he did was original, nothing he said, was original.

    He simply wanted to amass the highest body count, using the most infamous gun so that the media would talk about it, making him infamous for eternity because now anytime there’s a mass shooting his name will come up and he decided not to kill himself because he realized it would be better to live to see and experience the fame instead of dying.

    Now he’ll end up in prison and be taken in and protected by the other racist gangs in prison who hate black people and praise him for what he did.

    Congratulations to Americas Mainstream you did it again.

    You made another sociopathic low life famous for killing a bunch of people and inspired future shooters in the process.

    Especially now considering we are living at the height of clout chasing, where people eat laundry detergent for views.

    This is no different, except the clout chaser is an evil psychopath who was chasing clout with a gun in his hands.

    I promise you, if he thought no one would talk about him, mention his name or watch his disgusting little live snuff stream, he wouldn’t have done this because his motivation was attention and we just gave it to him in spades and then wonder why we keep having these copy cat mass shootings.

    And of course, right on cue here comes the anti-gun lobby and their anti-gun politician exploiting this shooting to push gun control.

    Here’s the irony the shooter said he chose to: “carry it out in New York due to its strict open carry gun laws, which would make it harder for someone to stop him.” https://www.newsweek.com/buffalo-shooter-saw-new-yorks-gun-laws-his-advantage-1706982.

    And the irony gets even worse, right now there is a case in the supreme court named New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen where the supreme court is deciding if New York’s denial of applications for concealed carry licenses for self defense violates the second amendment.

    Anyone want to take a guess how the mayor of New York feels about a potential ruling that would make it easier for New York citizens to carry guns for their safety?

    Especially after a mass shooter just shot up a grocery store in New York because he knew the likely hood of someone carrying a gun was low and if someone was, they’d likely be limited in their capacity to deal with him because of New York’s gun-laws.

    And I quote: “We Should Be Very Afraid, ” Mayor Eric Adams Said. In a densely populated community like New York, this ruling could have a major impact on us. https://abc7ny.com/supreme-court-new-york-guns-concealed-carry/11857751/

    This is not rocket science, shooters like these are cowards looking for easy targets. 

    That’s why he didn’t run down the block trying to shoot street dudes in that area, he knows the street dudes in the hood don’t care about New York’s gun laws, they all have guns with as many rounds as they want and they wouldn’t call the police.

    They’d leave him out there in the street to rot and instead of watching a livestream of a coward shooting unarmed innocent people, we’d be watching the livestream death of loser.

    Body armor and an AR-15 doesn’t make you immortal.

    When you have other people shooting back at you, it changes everything, you go from “I’m to kill everyone in this place” to “oh shit I’m being shot at” and that shifts the focus away from killing unarmed innocent people to the people shooting at you giving the unarmed people time to escape.

    That security guard may have lost his life, but because the shooter had to deal with the security guard shooting at him in the first place, there’s no telling how many lives he saved just by having a gun.

    Long story short, gun control create victims not safety.

    To honor Women’s History Month, we decided to highlight 10 incidents from last month in which the Second Amendment made all the difference for women.

    Women long have availed themselves of the right to keep and bear arms in defense of life, liberty, and property.

    To honor Women’s History Month, we decided to highlight 10 incidents from last month in which the Second Amendment made all the difference for women.

    No matter the month, the constitutional right to keep and bear arms remains in force, with no asterisk or small print excluding women.

    Since 1987, the United States has recognized March as Women’s History Month to celebrate the vital role of women in American history. Unfortunately, far too often we find that the armed women of history are overlooked or completely forgotten, and the vital role of the Second Amendment in the lives of American women is ignored.

    Women long have availed themselves of the right to keep and bear arms in defense of life, liberty, and property—from Harriet Tubman, the famed “conductor” of the underground railroad who was known to carry loaded pistols, to Mary “Stagecoach Mary” Fields, the first black woman to be a mail carrier, who notoriously kept a .38 revolver in her apron to fend off bandits and wild animals alike.

    Tubman and Fields haven’t been alone.

    Almost every major study on the issue has found that Americans use their firearms in self-defense between 500,000 and 3 million times annually, according to the most recent report on the subject by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    For this reason, The Daily Signal each month publishes an article highlighting some of the previous month’s many news stories on defensive gun use that you may have missed—or that might not have made it to the national spotlight in the first place. (Read other accounts here from 2019, 2020, 2021, and so far in 2022.)

    To honor Women’s History Month, we decided to highlight 10 incidents from last month in which the Second Amendment made all the difference for women, either because they were armed or because another armed person came to their defense.

    The examples below represent only a small portion of the news stories on defensive gun use that we found in March. You may explore more by using The Heritage Foundation’s interactive Defensive Gun Use Database

    • March 1, Atlanta: Five teens—at least two armed—tried to carjack a woman as she sat in her vehicle, police said. The woman drew her own gun and exchanged fire with the would-be carjackers, who fled. Although she was injured, her car was not stolen. Police said they arrested the teens just hours later, after a police chase in which they crashed a car stolen during a second carjacking.
    • March 4, Longview, Texas: A woman armed with a rifle shot and wounded a man who forced his way inside her home, police said. The woman had told the man—who neighbors say had a history of criminally trespassing in area homes—to get off her porch. But he refused and tried to smash in her sliding glass door with his fist, according to police, who arrested the wounded man. The county sheriff praised the woman’s actions as “an excellent example of the importance of our Second Amendment.”
    • March 5, Lincolnton, North Carolina: Police said a woman’s estranged husband showed up at the residence where she was staying, forced his way inside, and threatened her and the male homeowner. During the altercation, the homeowner retrieved a firearm from a bedroom and shot the intruder in self-defense before running to a neighbor’s home to call 911. Police charged the wounded husband with multiple crimes.
    • March 9, Nashville, Tennessee: After her boyfriend physically assaulted her earlier in the day, a woman returned to their shared home to gather her belongings and retrieve her three young children, police said. A female friend accompanied her for support. When they arrived, the boyfriend argued with the woman, then assaulted her again. She saw that he was armed, so she drew her own gun and exchanged fire with him in self-defense. The woman, her friend, and the boyfriend were all injured, but the three children weren’t harmed, police said. The boyfriend faces several felony charges, including being a felon in unlawful possession of a firearm.
    • March 10, Dayton, Ohio: A woman’s ex-boyfriend ignored a protective order against him, scaled the roof of her home in the middle of the night, and tried to climb through her bedroom window, police said. When the woman heard the intruder, she grabbed a firearm to protect herself and her daughter and shot the man in the arm as he descended into her bedroom. She told police she realized it was her ex-boyfriend as he ran from the house. He was arrested later that day after calling paramedics for his gunshot wound, and faces several criminal charges.
    • March 16, Reading, Pennsylvania: A woman and her boyfriend were about to get into their car at a local park when a man approached them and fired two rounds, police said. The woman drew her own gun and shot back, giving her wounded boyfriend time to take cover behind their car. Police later arrested their assailant and charged him with attempted homicide and unlawfully possessing a gun as a felon.
    • March 22, Orlando, Florida: A female veteran working as an Uber driver arrived at a customer’s pick-up location and saw him physically assaulting his girlfriend, police said. The driver decided to give them a ride despite the man’s violent actions because she didn’t want to leave the girlfriend alone with her assailant. When the couple got into the car, the man passed out drunk in the back seat while the Uber driver spoke with the girlfriend. When the man woke up and assaulted both his girlfriend and the driver, police said, the driver stopped the car and demanded that he get out. The driver shot and wounded the man after he shoved his girlfriend to the ground and advanced on the driver in a threatening manner.
    • March 23, Paradise, Nevada: A woman was with her boyfriend and three children when an ex-boyfriend broke into their home, police said. The woman armed herself and called 911, and the ex-boyfriend left. However, he returned a short time later armed with his own gun, which he pointed at the current boyfriend’s head. The woman fired one shot, striking him in the head and killing him, police said. No one else was harmed.
    • March 24, Lansing, Michigan: When a man with two prior convictions for domestic violence began assaulting a woman inside her  home, police said,  her son came to her defense, shooting and wounding her attacker. Police arrested him at a nearby hospital. The woman was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
    • March 25, Montgomery, Alabama: When a woman called police after being assaulted by her husband, officers advised her to pursue a protective order against him. The woman was on her way to the police station with her two adult sons when the husband rammed his car into hers, drove them off the road, and approached them while brandishing a handgun. One son, an off-duty sheriff’s deputy, told his brother and mother to run when his father opened fire. Despite being shot five times, the son was able to draw his own gun and fatally shoot his father before anyone else was harmed. He was hospitalized in critical condition, but expected to survive.

    Some gun control advocates like to claim that the Second Amendment was written by and for men, and that it leaves women to suffer as victims of gun violence.

    But these claims ignore the countless cases such as the ones above, where the right to keep and bear arms was used by women or for the sake of protecting women—often from male aggressors against whom an unarmed woman would have been effectively helpless.

    Women’s History Month may be over, but the importance of the Second Amendment in the lives of American women continues every day of the year.

    No matter the month, the constitutional right to keep and bear arms remains in force, with no asterisk or small print excluding women.

    By Dave Workman of Guns Magazine        By tradition, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) holds its most controversial rulings until the final days of the session, which wraps up later this month, and New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen will not be the last battle.

    Certainly, an affirmative ruling — meaning a decision by the court to nullify the long-standing “good cause” requirement for carry permits in New York State — would be shattering not only for anti-gun-rights Empire State bureaucrats, but for similarly empowered people in states with similar requirements. We’re talking about New Jersey, Maryland, California, Hawaii, Delaware (Joe Biden’s home state), Connecticut and Massachusetts. A favorable outcome would strengthen the Second Amendment, but it won’t be the last word.

    If the high court strikes down the New York requirement, as many anticipate at this writing, the other states will have to be dragged kicking and screaming into compliance. Demagoguery dies hard and bureaucrats hate to give up any power they have over the public, especially involving the exercise of the right to bear arms, as well as keep them.

    What’s at stake here is not just the rights of people involved in the lawsuit, but the generations of citizens whose rights have been violated by these laws and who never had the chance for relief. Nobody has ever talked about this because it’s an inconvenient truth. If the law is found unconstitutional, it has always been so. We can’t retroactively hold all of those people accountable who enforced the laws in decades past but we can put candidates and incumbents on the spot to make sure we vote against anybody who thinks the right needs to be restricted.

    Experience following the high court ruling against Chicago’s handgun ban in June 2010 suggests New York officials will scramble to figure out just how far they can push the envelope with revised restrictions, and still comply.

    An affirmative Second Amendment ruling — if that’s what the court delivers — will come right in the middle of campaign season leading up to the 2022 midterm elections. You’ve got only a few months to mobilize, get behind candidates who will flip power in Congress and in state legislatures around the country. This year provides an opportunity to stage a peaceful revolution by putting anti-gun politicians out of work, allowing pro-rights officials to right the wrongs of the past 18 months and maybe decades in those states with restrictive gun laws.

    Biden’s New ATF Nominee: Worse than David Chipman!  by Don Smith

    Last year, gun owners across America stood up and rejected David Chipman’s nomination to run the scandal-ridden ATF.  Now, we’re going to have to do it again.

    According to several sources, Biden’s handlers are about to nominate Steve Dettelbach as the new director of the ATF. And if you thought that Chipman was the worst nominee possible, I’ve got bad news for you: Steve Dettelbach is even worse!  

    There is no time to waste, as Biden’s team is trying to rally support for Dettelbach behind closed doors as we speak. Please call our NY senators and express your strong opposition against this left-wing activist immediately!
    Chairman Wayne County SCOPE

    1.Contact Senate Leader Chuck Schumer (D) 

    DC Phone Number: 202-224-6542 (you will need to leave a message)

    Contact: https://www.schumer.senate.gov/contact/email-chuck

    2.Contact Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D) 

    DC Phone Number: 202-224-4451 (you may need to leave a message)

    Contact: https://www.gillibrand.senate.gov/contact/email-me

    Dettelbach was a former candidate for Ohio Attorney General (and a former United State Attorney during the Obama Administration). Dettelbach has made gun control a core part of his public image and is on the record in support of:

    >>> A total ban on the sale of AR-15s and hundreds of similar firearms, along with the magazines that we need to run them. To be clear, Dettelbach supports bringing felony charges against law abiding Americans who buy these rifles!

    >>> Establishing a national registry of every firearm and every gun owner under the guise of ‘Universal Background Checks.’ The left wants this data to lay the groundwork for eventual gun confiscation!

    >>> Putting gun owners with a variety of misdemeanor convictions on the ‘prohibited persons’ NICS list. Once we go down this road and put non-felons into NICS, millions of gun owners will be disarmed!

    Dettelbach also supports seizing guns from people who are seeking help for mental health difficulties, but who have never been adjudicated as defective. This sounds like the ‘unsafe’ act. 

    Dettelbach’s commitment to the left’s gun control agenda is why Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety backed him when he ran for Attorney General in Ohio in 2018 -- and why he received the personal endorsement of Barack Obama and Joe Biden! 

    Last Last year, gun owners across America stood up and rejected David Chipman’s nomination to run the scandal-ridden ATF.  Now, we’re going to have to do it again.

    Zeldin, Hochul Secure Spots On Primary Ballot: The 2022 campaign for governor of New York is underway.  03/19/2022 / Albany Update     

    Gov. Kathy Hochul is the Democratic Party’s designated candidate for governor this year. The Party selected Gov. Hochul at the New York State Democratic Convention on February 17, 2022, when the Governor amassed 85.6% of the weighted vote. U.S. Rep. Tom Suozzi (D-NY3) and New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams are also seeking the Democratic nomination, with Rep. Suozzi running as a moderate problem-solver and Public Advocate Williams running as a progressive with the support of the Working Families Party. Because Rep. Suozzi and Public Advocate Williams did not receive enough votes at the Democratic Convention to get onto the primary ballot, each candidate will try to gain ballot access by obtaining the signatures of 15,000 Democratic voters. As of mid-January, Gov. Hochul had amassed a record-setting $21.6 million in campaign donations.

    On March 16, 2022, CNBC reported that former Gov. Andrew Cuomo is also considering running for governor this year. Cuomo began this year with $16 million in his campaign account and has spent $2 million on advertisements in an effort to regain public support. Earlier this month, a poll showed Cuomo trailing Hochul by a narrow 37%-33% margin amongst Democratic voters, with Rep. Suozzi receiving 7% support and Public Advocate Williams receiving 4%. However, the same poll showed that 59% of all New York voters believe that the results of Attorney General Letitia James’s investigation into Cuomo were accurate; in addition, 63% of all New York voters do not believe Cuomo should hold public office again. Recently, when asked whether he would consider creating his own political party line to facilitate a gubernatorial campaign, Cuomo replied: “‘I’ve done it before. My father’s done it before.’”

    On the Republican side, U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY1) received the Party’s support for governor on March 1, 2022 at the New York Republican Convention. Eighty-five percent of convention delegates voted for Rep. Zeldin. Former Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino and businessman Harry Wilson each received the support of 7% of delegates, while former White House staffer Andrew Giuliani received the support of less than 1%. Astorino, Giuliani, and Wilson each must gather 15,000 signatures to gain ballot access. As of January 2022, Rep. Zeldin had raised $8.4 million in campaign contributions. On March 14, 2022, Rep. Zeldin’s campaign released the results of a poll showing him leading Gov. Hochul, 45.5%-44%; a poll taken earlier in March showed Gov. Hochul leading Rep. Zeldin, 50%-35%.

    If necessary, primary elections for governor will be held on June 28, 2022. In anticipation of those potential primaries, New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms has begun hosting candidate spotlights with candidates who have secured a place on a major party ballot. At our March 15, 2022 Digital Day of Action, NYCF welcomed Rep. Lee Zeldin for an interview; video of that interview is available here. We hope that Gov. Hochul and other potential candidates will also join us for interviews as the campaign continues.

    S7736 has been delivered to Governor Kathy Hochul.

    Senate Bill S7736

    Amends the "Scott J. Beigel unfinished receiver act" relating to unserialized frames or receivers

    Sponsor:

    KAPLAN

    Recent Actions:

    • Feb 7, 2022 - PASSED ASSEMBLY
    • Feb 7, 2022 - RETURNED TO SENATE
    • Feb 24, 2022 - DELIVERED TO GOVERNOR
        Review S7736 on NYSenate.gov
     

    What this Means:

    The Governor has 10 days (not including Sundays) to approve (“sign”) or reject (“veto”) bills passed by both houses. Signed bills become law; vetoed bills do not. However, if the governor failure to sign or veto a bill within the 10-day period, the bill automatically becomes law.

    If a bill is delivered to the Governor when the Legislature is out of session (typically from late June until early January), the rules are a bit different. At such times, the Governor has 30 days (including Sundays) in which to make a decision. Failure to act has the same effect as a veto. Informally, this failure to act is often referred to as a “pocket veto.”

    What Happens Next:

    The committee may amend the bill to satisfy concerns of committee members, leave it as is, or refer it to another committee for further deliberation. The bill may be reported to the full Senate chamber for consideration if a majority share of the committee members support it. If a bill has not been addressed by the committee by the end of the two-year legislative term, the bill is said to have 'died in committee'.

    What Can I Do?

    You can reach out to Governor Kathy Hochul's office at the following link: https://www.governor.ny.gov/content/governor-contact-form. Additionally, all members of the Senate welcome legislative feedback from constituents at nysenate.gov. When you use the New York State Senate website to officially support or oppose this bill, your feedback will be shared directly with your senator.
