    Any ideas why this hasn't made the national news?

    The police said that he had a .22. The guy working on the car said he had an AK.

    @Geezer
    You always uncover the news we need to know and can’t find elsewhere. How about doing a daily newscast streamed on Utube? :rolleyes:

    Stated .22 caliber rifle and an AK. Could have been a .22 LR AK. National news doesn't want it to be a transgender as they portray themselves as the victim always.

    Anyone want to bet not a single MSM will give this more than 30sec airtime??

    10:1 under 30sec


    *disclaimer: I am not soliciting bets. I barely know what an over/under is.

    Could have been a 10/22 with a BX25 mag. To the uninitiated every rifle with a banana shaped mag is an AK.

    They were confused. It was Mindy with the banana, not the rifle. ;)

    Perhaps the 10/22 identified as an AK. Who are we to assume it's caliber?

    Don't worry. If this does somehow sneak into the news cycle, the media has a ready-made line: poor, bullied transgender snaps because cisgendered people are so hateful and unaccepting. So the shooter gets to remain the victim here.

    The rifle description’s odd, a “@22 caliber” then an AK.
    Isn’t an AK-74 a 22 caliber (5.45x39)?

    With this bad guy’s minority status and choices in life, I see this thread being locked before Friday.

    Race, Transgender, No Deaths, Firearm Used all could have been the reason why it won't make national news.

    Can't have national news showing that transgenders truly do suffer from some sort of mental shortcoming.

    Just like the dude in England. Born man, decided he was a girl, then went back to being a dude, then went back to thinking he was a girl......

    At least I've not dealt with them, being SC I was worried. Friend of a family member down there is nutty as a squirrel.

    Just like the trans student and BFF who shot up the magnet school.
    MSM buried it because they were not white straight men.

    This was one of my initial thoughts since I, growing up in NJ and not around guns, always assumed “banana clip” = AK. So when I saw Butler Creek mags in a Cabelas catalog I though “AK mags”.

    Kind of ridiculous to think about it that way now, but I didn’t know the first thing about guns as a young teen. Just like MSM and most politicians lol

    The general public isn't going to know that, nor would they care to figure it out. When was the last time you saw them do any true fact finding about guns? People in New Jersey think the pistol grip on an AR makes the bullets go faster for fu**s sake.

    Not always. There are rifle barrels over shotgun barrels. Almost bought one once. Wish now I had.
