Gunman kills 5 at Milwaukee brewery before taking own life

Guy gets fired earlier in the day, then comes back for retribution...

MILWAUKEE (AP) — An employee opened fire Wednesday at one of the nation’s largest breweries in Milwaukee, killing five fellow workers before taking his own life, police said.

The assailant who attacked the Molson Coors complex was identified as a 51-year-old Milwaukee man who died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.

“There were five individuals who went to work today, just like everybody goes to work, and they thought they were going to go to work, finish their day and return to their families. They didn’t — and tragically they never will,” Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said.

Milwaukee police sources told CBS 2’s Jermont Terry that the gunman was fired earlier in the day. He returned and started shooting with a silenced gun, police sources said.

The gunman appeared to have stolen the nametag of another employee when he returned to work with a gun, sources told Terry.

I was wondering why this story didn't get more legs in the media, maybe this was why.

The Milwaukee man who killed five co-workers at a beer company’s corporate office is a black Elizabeth Warren supporter, providing a clue as to why the mass shooting disappeared from the discussion so quickly.

51-year-old Anthony Ferrill showed up at the MillerCoors facility from where he had been fired earlier in the day wearing his uniform and carrying a silenced gun.

It subsequently emerged that Ferrill was an African-American Elizabeth Warren supporter (presuming that Ferrill shared the same political beliefs as his wife, who took a selfie with Warren at a rally last year).

“Ferrill’s wife posted photos of her family and expressing liberal political views,” confirms Heavy.com. “In July 2019, Ferrill’s wife attended a speech by U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren at South Division High School Gym in Milwaukee. Following the speech, Ferrill’s wife took a photo with the Massachusetts senator.”

The affected families should file suit to hold the facility accountable for violating their 2A rights.

Yes, but no. That's the wrong argument. 

The right argument is that they curtailed their employees 2a right to self defense, and in doing so took on added responsibility for the safety of their employees, which they failed to adequately provide for. 

The argument to make is that gun free zones transfer liability.

Actually, I'll shift it even more. Ignore the 2a. As long as they curtailed their employees recourse to self defense beyond whatever is permitted by state law, then they took on the liability of enhanced protection to counter that action. Leave the rights part of it out as much as possible. Maximize the fiscal liability of gun free zones.

Pretty amazing all the Dems are talking about blaming Trump for not doing enough about the virus along with the market, there's been almost no talking if this.

Guess it's not a talking point for them when they don't have a need for it.

The perpetrator was a black, and a democrat, in a gun free zone. He was pissed off about how he was fired from a job in a union shop. 

This goes deeply against a number of democrat narratives, so their media arm won't be talking about it a lot.

Try "at all".   5 days later and not a peep after first day.

Nobody does that to someone else, the person who hung the noose was the same one who pulled the trigger.
