    More than a year before Anderson Lee Aldrich allegedly carried out the deadly Colorado gay nightclub shooting, the suspect had threatened to kill their grandparents for standing in the way of an elaborate plan to become 'the next mass killer.'   'You guys die today and I'm taking you with me,' they are quoted as saying. 'I'm loaded and ready.' In June 2021, Aldrich flew into a rage when the grandparents announced they were selling their home and moving to Florida, according to sealed law enforcement documents viewed by The Associated Press. The move would interfere with Aldrich's plans to stockpile materials Aldrich' claimed was 'enough firepower to blow up an entire police department and a federal building' in the grandparent's basement to 'conduct a mass shooting and bombing.'  Aldrich threatened to kill them if they didn't promise to cancel the move and so began a day of terror Aldrich unleashed that culminated in the standoff. But charges against Aldrich were dropped and there was no effort to seize their weapons under Colorado's 'red flag' law. Just a year and a half later, Aldrich was...

    US Rep. Lauren Boebert said she is tired of being blamed for the deadly Colorado gay club shooting as the left points to her anti-LGBTQ rhetoric.  The Colorado congresswoman blasted her critics in an interview with OAN, saying she has been long-accused of influencing mass shooters since taking office.  'I have been accused of just about every mass shooting there has been since the Left has learned of my name,' Boebert said. 'Whether it's Uvalde, or the King Soopers shooting in Boulder, Colorado, or the Buffalo, New York shooting.  'Or even Paul Pelosi getting hammered,' she added, referencing the home invasion attack that left the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's husband hospitalized. 'I have been blamed for all of that.'  Nancy Pelosi had prominently laid the blame on MAGA Republicans for the deadly Colorado shooting when Anderson Aldrich, 22, killed five and injured 19 during a drag show on the eve of Transgender Day of Remembrance.  Following the House Speaker's condemnation, US Reps Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Brianna Titone named Boebert directly for her comments against transgender individuals, and the local...
    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. —  In its most trying hour, as an armed assailant waged war on its patrons, Club Q remained what its clientele has long cherished, and what queer bars everywhere have been for generations: a source of kindness and community, where people look out for one another. After Ed Sanders was shot in the back and leg, he collapsed to the floor beside the bar, next to a woman he didn’t know. Sanders, 63, covered her with his coat in an attempt to shield her from whatever onslaught might come next, he said in an interview from his bed at UCHealth Memorial Hospital Central in Colorado Springs. Once others in the crowd took down the shooter, more patrons rushed forward to help the wounded, he said. “There was a lot of people helping each other. People who weren’t hit were helping,” said Sanders, who has been going to the club since its opening night two decades ago. “Just like a family would do.” Amid stories of heartbreak and devastation from Saturday night’s shooting, which left five dead and...

    Thomas Peipert/AP Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.A gunman opened fire at a Colorado Springs LGBTQ nightclub late Saturday night, killing five people and injuring at least 18 others. The suspect began firing with a long rifle as soon as he entered Club Q close to midnight, according to early reports. Officials said that two people inside the club, including a possible combat veteran, subdued the attacker before police arrived. “Their actions clearly saved lives,” said Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers at a Sunday press conference. Officials said they are investigating whether the shooting was a hate crime.

    Four years and six days before a fourth-grade class was gunned down at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, Rhonda Hart lost her teenage daughter, Kimberly Vaughan, in a shooting at a high school about 300 miles east. She’s a member of a tragic, steadily growing network: parents of children who were killed in mass shootings. “We call it, unofficially, the Dead Kid Club,” she said. So when she heard the news of yet another school shooting in Texas, Hart knew better than most what that will mean for the 19 families now missing young members. “If you look up the cycle of grief, it’s supposed to go around in a circle: denial, anger, whatever. But that circle is B.S.,” she said. “It’s not so much a circle as a pinball machine. They’re going to be bouncing around from all these different emotions. They’re going to think they’re fine, and then one little incident will set them off.” For Hart, one such incident came when she pulled up at the grocery store less than a year after her daughter’s death...

    HUMBOLDT PARK — When Chicago musician Scott Morrow was hit in the back by a stray bullet last month, one of the things he said to himself while trying to say alive in the ambulance was: “I can’t die before I see Justin Fields on the field for the Bears.” Morrow lost his spleen, his left kidney and part of his pancreas — but he survived. And Justin Fields paid him a surprise visit this week to cheer him up. The Bears No. 1 draft pick, the rookie quarterback out of Ohio State who Bears fans are praying will finally be the franchise player they need to get back to past glory, came to check on Morrow after getting wind of his ambulance hopes. “It’s pretty surreal,” Morrow said of Fields’ visit. Morrow, 41, was shot and badly injured during Puerto Rican Parade festivities last month. After Block Club highlighted Morrow’s story and his dream to see Fields, the Bears reached out and arranged for Fields to visit Monday. Morrow said they chatted about Fields’ youth camp in Chicago, and how...
