Another rage-filled American terrorist, with his bigotry emboldened by fellow psychopaths on Elon Musk’s Twitter like Chaya Raichik (libsoftiktok), who fuels her 1.5 million followers daily with hate speech directed at the LGBT community. This latest mass murder was at a Colorado Springs gay bar (Raichik was singling out Colorado gays just this morning), where a gunman entered and opened fire on the crowd, killing five and injuring at least 25.

A 22-year-old gunman entered an LGBTQ nightclub in Colorado Springs, Colorado, just before midnight Saturday and immediately opened fire, killing at least five people and injuring 25 others, before patrons confronted and stopped him, police said Sunday.

The suspect in the shooting at Club Q was identified as Anderson Lee Aldrich, according to Colorado Springs Police Chief Adrian Vasquez. He used a long rifle in the shooting, and two firearms were found at the scene, Vasquez said.

At least two people inside the club confronted and fought the gunman and prevented further violence, Vasquez said. “We owe them a great debt of thanks,” he said.

Authorities initially said 18 people were injured but later adjusted that total up to 25. Of those, several are in critical condition with gunshot wounds, though the exact number was unclear, officials said.

The killer was arrested last year for making a bomb threat against his mother, but he was of course released, and he was obviously able to easily obtain the AR-15 he used in last night’s massacre. Video from a survivor and memorial outside the club:
