They say a single d***h is a tragedy but a million deaths is a statistic. History shows us over and over again that there are no invincible armies. Many have noticed the trend, an uptick in violence and mass shootings. No tragedy goes unpoliticized or unwasted as politicians do not even wait until the injured are treated or the bodies are cold in the ground before they make their agendas to come for disarmament very clear to anyone that will listen.
What is more insidious is the failures of law enforcement to listen to the cries for help. One thing we are finding that all of these tragedies have in common is contact with the Federal Bureau of Investigation or the FBI and it is an alarming trend. Be it some 37 different complaints made to the FBI for Nikolas Cruz, the mass s*****r at Margory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, or then there was Omar Mateen the Pulse Night Club s*****r. He was on a terrorist watch list for two years when the FBI closed the file and stated he was not a danger to anyone. The Las Vegas s*****r Stephen Paddock was also known to the FBI as his father lived in Oregon while on the run from the Bureau.
Then more recently there was Antioch, Tennessee Waffle House s*****r Travis Reinking. Reinking previously had his firearms confiscated by the Secret Service in July 2017 and his Illinois carry permit revoked due to being in a restricted area. The 4 firearms were then turned over to Reinking’s father who then gave them back to Reinking. Reinking then used one of those firearms to commit the crime at the Waffle House overnight while carrying Colorado identification and living in Tennessee.
The co-owner of a Colorado crane company where the suspect in a deadly weekend s******g at a Nashville restaurant once worked said she had urged federal officials to keep him in custody after he was arrested at the White House last year.
Reinking had exhibited erratic behavior for years before the s******g. Darlene Sustrich, who co-owns a Colorado crane company where Reinking once worked, said they got a call from the FBI after he allegedly tried to jump the White House fence last July.
“We told them, ‘Hang onto him if you can. Help him if you can,'” Sustrich said. The FBI ignored her request.
Reinking has been charged with four counts of criminal homicide. And a tweet from the Metro Nashville Police Department said he also faces four counts of attempted m****r and one count of unlawful possession in the commission of a violent felony.
Davidson County Sheriff Daron Hall said Tuesday that Reinking has been “compliant” and “cooperative” since he was transferred to the jail late Monday after he was captured near the apartment where he lived. Reinking is wearing a vest known informally as a “s*****e smock” and will remain under close observation at a maximum-security facility in Nashville.
An attorney listed as Reinking’s lawyer did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

Reinking had previously identified himself as a sovereign citizen where all of his victims where black men and women in a predominantly black or minority area of town with a larger than normal Muslim population. It seems that they did not count on the heroic actions of James Shaw, Jr. and his willingness to step in front of a bullet to save himself and others. Shaw was honored on the Tennessee House floor yesterday for his heroic bravery in the face of danger.
Shaw states of the events that night –
“I did that completely out of a selfish act. I was completely doing it just to save myself. Now, me doing that, I did save other people. But I don’t want people to think that I was the Terminator, or Superman or anybody like that. It was just, I figured if I was going to d*e, he was going to have to work for it.”
Yet this trend continues to grow…the FBI continues to drop the ball. Are they just too busy concocting Russian conspiracy theories there in Washington and lying under oath to pay attention? Or are they simply ignoring what is right in front of them and truly trying to use these events of mental illness to disarm America?
Isoroku Yamamoto is once attributed to with stating that to invade America would be s*****e because one would find a rifle behind every blade of grass. It appears that Josepf Stalin had a solution for the “problem” the leftist progressives have with American firearm ownership in that d***h is the solution to all problems. No man – no problem. One must wonder how many times the ball is dropped before it is no longer an accident and it becomes a plot and done by design.
