(UnitedVoice.com) – Tragedy struck the Molson Coors brewing and office complex in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Wednesday taking the lives of five victims. There was a sixth death, self-inflicted by the shooter, that terminated the ordeal.
The gunman has been identified tentatively as 51-year old Anthony N. Ferrill, an electrician who worked for the brewer for over 20 years and a veteran of the United States Coast Guard. Authorities have not released his motive at this time, although anecdotal evidence might shed some light.

Co-workers, speaking on the condition of anonymity, have said that Ferrill believed he was being discriminated against because of his African American heritage. One of the employees was quoted as saying “…he (Ferrill) believed Miller workers were coming into his home, bugging his computer and moving chairs around.” As a side note: it is atypical for a black man to be a mass shooter as statistics show that, historically, they have been overwhelmingly caucasian.
Another mass shooting will inevitably bring cries advocating gun control issues and red flag laws. Progressive Liberals from the halls of Congress to the campaign trail will use this tragedy in one of their most basic equations: Tragedy + Fearmongering = Votes. They will use a facade of compassion in an attempt to defeat President Donald Trump come November.
As for us, we extend our sympathies to the victims of this senseless act of violence.
