Louisville bank shooter mocked the world, called for gun control before carrying out mass killings
04/25/2023 // JD Heyes // Views

There can be no doubt that our country has a mental health crisis on its hands, and when you combine that with the inalienable right to keep and bear arms, you get mass shootings.

But one that occurred at a bank in Louisville, Ky., earlier this month was particularly bizarre or, at least, the shooter's reasons for it: The shooter had left behind "extensive" notes which may have caused discomfort for Democrats.

“Authorities have revealed that the man who murdered five of his co-workers at” the “bank left two notes explaining his actions, which included the liberal narrative that it is ‘too easy’ to buy a gun in America, especially for someone with mental problems,” The Western Journal reported.

Per earlier reports, 25-year-old Connor Sturgeon, an employee of Old National Bank, entered the business on April 10 and began shooting, killing five people and wounding eight. In response, Louisville police arrived, engaged, and shot Sturgeon, killing him as well. During the exchange, one officer, who had recently graduated from the police academy just ten days before the incident, was wounded as well.

As reported by CNN, the assailant had left behind "very extensive" notes expressing his intention to showcase how easy it is for a mentally unstable person to acquire a firearm. Sturgeon had purchased the gun lawfully a week before the shooting and had cleared all the essential background checks. Worse, the perpetrator's family mentioned that although he was battling depression, they never imagined him capable of committing a mass shooting.


“While Connor, like many of his contemporaries, had mental health challenges which we, as a family, were actively addressing, there were never any warning signs or indications he was capable of this shocking act,” the family said in a statement.

Of course, lying about suffering from mental illness on a federal firearms background form is a felony, but it appears to happen often.

Breitbart has reported that there have been more than 30 well-known mass shootings since 2007, where the perpetrators passed the necessary background checks. Despite the perceived ineffectiveness of background checks by many, Democrats continue to advocate for more extensive checks as a potential solution to address such shootings.

In fact, CNN hosts and personalities attempted to spin the Louisville shooting as the killer proving his point. On Saturday, host Jim Scuitto said it was easy, “particularly in a state such as Kentucky,” for mentally ill persons to purchase a firearm.

“[Sturgeon] claims he wanted to show how easy it is for someone in America with serious mental illness to just go out and buy a gun. We should note, under Kentucky state law, he was only required to fill out [a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives] form and undergo a criminal records check,” said Scuitto, according to Breitbart News.

“Particularly in a state such as Kentucky, it is true, is it not, that it’s fairly easy to get a weapon, well, under any circumstances, and even if you do have a record of mental health issues?” Scuitto said, according to Breitbart.

100 Percent Fed Up reported: "In his manifesto, the shooter laid out his three goals for the murderous endeavor: he wanted to kill himself, he wanted to prove how easy it was to purchase a gun in Kentucky, and he wanted to highlight a mental health crisis in America. On April 4, the suicidal mass murderer bought an AR-15 assault rifle.

"At 8:33 am on April 10, Sturgeon entered the Old National Bank in downtown Louisville where he was employed. He was reportedly fired – or was going to be fired – from his job after executives lost confidence in his abilities to perform as he struggled to fit in," the outlet noted further.

The report noted that no sooner than he entered the bank, a female co-worker greeted him, and he told her, “You need to get out of here," telling her to run. As she did, he lifted the rifle to shoot her but realized it was still on safety without a round in the chamber.

"Sturgeon quickly loaded the gun and took off the safety, again aiming at the fleeing woman and shooting her in the back. It is unclear if the female employee is one of the victims or if she survived the shooting," 100 Percent Fed Up added.
