FBI ‘Nail Gun Shooter’ Perfect Suspect for Administration Supporters to Exploit

Low-hanging fruit? A false flag? It doesn’t matter, because if you oppose the Democrat agenda, this is how they’ll paint you. (Kelley Mayer News/Twitter)

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “MAGA MANIAC SHOT DEAD IN OH,” a Friday Drudge Report link reads.

Of course, that’s not the title of the more restrained “What we know about the FBI Ohio office attack suspect,” Axios headline says. But Drudge, or whoever now controls his site, has been lurching steadily leftward since he first gained fame exposing Bill Clinton exposing himself to Monica Lewinsky.

In any case, those six words do their job to bolster the confirmation biases of millions of Democrat sympathizers reading it and the political and bureaucratic interests intent on exploiting it for all its worth.  The offender is a “Trumpster,” just like all Trumpsters—”militia violent extremists,” insurrectionists, and racists all. Meanwhile, the DOJ and FBI can point the finger back at anyone raising “baseless” questions about the Mar-a-Lago rai… uh, search, and accuse them of fomenting hatred and violence.

At least that’s the narrative all the major “news” providers are now parroting.

So a week later, what do “we know” about the dead suspect? Not a lot, really, only what “authorities” are saying and the media is repeating.

He was supposedly a Navy veteran, AP reports, may have “had ties to far-right extremist groups such as the Proud Boys,” and was “believed to have been in Washington in the days leading up to the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection and may have been at the Capitol that day but was not charged with any crimes in connection with the riot.” “May have … was believed.”

Why the J6 “insurrectionists” did not come armed has still not been explained and remains as confounding as why a suspect armed with an AR-15 would bother shooting into an FBI field office with a nail gun.

But that’s not as important to those who would tar half their countrymen with the brush of traitor. There’s a more exploitable allegation that “Federal investigators are examining social media accounts they believe are tied to the gunman.” And the predominant one they’re associating with him is Donald Trump’s Truth Social, where he reportedly posted:

“Well, I thought I had a way through bullet proof glass, and I didn’t.  If you don’t hear from me, it is true I tried attacking the F.B.I., and it’ll mean either I was taken off the internet, the F.B.I. got me, or they sent the regular cops while.”

It would help if the account were still up so we could see for ourselves what else its purported holder has revealed about himself. Per The Washington Post, the “FBI attacker was [a] prolific contributor” who was “not just voicing anger but also calling for direct action to bring on armed conflict.” You must read the fine print to pick up the caveats that it was “an account with the suspect’s name.”

Perhaps the account was closed by government order. Perhaps it was taken down by Truth Social. In any case, removing it only works in favor of those who want to believe an account that may or may not be a fake and that may or may not have belonged to a low-hanging fruit loser who identified as a Trump follower and had 23 followers, serves as a template by which everyone who supports an America First agenda deserves to be judged. You know, “MAGA Maniacs.”

So basically, what we’re left with are these sources being the places most Americans will get their information and form their opinions from. That and NBC News Justice Reporter Ryan J. Reilly, quick to lay on the Twitter snark like “EXCLUSIVE from Breitbart: Weekends exist!” and ridiculing that they didn’t know what “SSA” stands for (Breitbart explained that they did not make a name assumption due to unclear handwriting on an inventory receipt.)

The adage about people in glass houses comes to mind, as does Reilly’s affinity for Alinsky Rule 5 ridicule, when one recalls that back when he was feeding at the Huffington Post trough, he asked if earplugs were rubber bullets.

In any case, the media is running full speed, laying blame for the “assault nail gun” shooter on anyone who questions the legitimacy of Joe Biden’s election (something like 40% of the country) or challenges any of the administration’s policies, whether they be on Covid, immigration, taxes, guns… They’re all “rightwing extremists” and all share in the guilt CNN is highlighting when it breathlessly declares, “Violent rhetoric circulates on the pro-Trump internet following FBI search, including against a judge,” further declaring:

Other posts were more explicit, “I’m just going to say it. [Attorney General Merrick] Garland needs to be assassinated. Simple as that.” Another user posted, “kill all feds.”

Those may be actionable. It’s certainly not inconceivable that an investigation would ID the meatheads in meatspace. It would help if we knew who they were, and also if maybe they aren’t who they’re representing themselves to be. But as long as that’s the game being played, we might want to see what some Trump critics are saying about all this over on Truth Social (enter “Ricky Shiffer” in the search box and select the “Truths” tab):

Ricky Shiffer is dead because of the rhetoric by @realDonaldTrump

Go FBI !!!!!!!!!! Ricky Shiffer a 1/6 domestic terrorist as now one less MAGA fan hahahahahahahahahga

Ricky Walter Shiffer. A 1/6 terrorist, now he’s a dead 1/6 terrorist. Which one ur keyboard f**sticks wants to cosplay ur civil war fantasies next?!?!

Yep. Dead right wing traitor terrorist

I could go on, but the point is made.

“It’s time to put the anger and the harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation,” Joe Biden said after being declared the winner in the last presidential election. “It’s time for America to unite. And to heal.”

Who in the gun owner advocacy community believes such unity is remotely possible with those whose mandate is “surrender and obey or else”?

I can imagine all of this crapola from the Libtards will only intensify. Midterm elections coming soon and they are running out of ideas.


Exactly.. they had taken their feet off the gas prior to Trumps announcement he would run for president again along with the country falling apart. Now they’re full steam again with their insults, labels and rhetoric.


The Repubic party better come up with some new ideas quick because last time I heard AuthoritarianTrump isn’t on the ballot in November.


this points to the lack of true journalism in American media today. all the talking heads just parrot what they hear someone else say, no one asks questions or does an actual investigation to find out what really happened. what happened with the vegas shooting? crickets another big issue is the anonymity of the internet. trolls hide behind screen names and blast their vitriol towards others when they have no idea of what is the truth. and there is only one truth. then you got big tech working with the feds to withhold information from citizens for various reasons to… Read more »

Hilliary Clinton’s campaign admitted sending a legion of paid trolls to make conservatives feel isolated and alone in the hope that the conservatives would just give up and stay home from the polls.


If “we” were smart, “we” would sign up as trolls en-mass, absorbing that cash flow, then sit home until it was time to vote Republican.


It is being reported that o’biden’s IRS army will not only utilize night vision goggles and quick reaction gear but these agents will be armed with fully automatic nail guns capable of firing the most deadly hollow point and AP nails available in the marketplace.

One more reason for working hard to ensure a change in the Senate and House of Reps, in November. And welcome to the site.

Looks like tbey are averaging 4.6 cents a piece right now for 3,600 lot.

Joe Biden follows in Obama’s footsteps as a divider of our nation both are the biggest lies ever told.


his change , simple make the money in your pocket and savings chump change …if you had good healthcare good luck with that


You’re right those are lies… everyone knows Trump is the biggest divider ever!! He’s now even trying to divide the Repubic hair party. Crazy!! But y’all let him do it. The Rightest don’t have a backbone, are puppets, and have no true agenda. #Facts! And the Repubs sleeps on the 2nd amendment. Let me educate some of y’all, NOT ever Democrat are against the 2nd Ammend but there are other issues a lot bigger than a damn gun. Guns are easily attainable. Criminals can get them. But social justice, women rights, and elderly rights are soooo far more important than… Read more »


I’ll admit that Trump IS a divider. He’s separating the true conservative Republicans from the “business as usual” Republicans. I’ll skip the rest of your “no information” reply and jump to the end. Most of the social justice issues are made up by the left to truly divide the country. I worked 15 years for a woman that made twice as much money as I did. On the abortion issue, women shouldn’t be using abortion as birth control. There’s lots of medications out there to prevent pregnancy and they are available for free. Elderly rights, I’m in my 70th year… Read more »

Did you get your TSRA voter’s guide in the mail, yet?


Did you get permission from your handlers, yet?

Wild Bill

I been feeding animals. It takes longer due to the rain because some have to go into the barn. The dogs have individual runs, etc.

Wild Bill

In this evening’s mail. Apparently, our little one horse town post office has a very slow horse.

Wild Bill

Cut and Shoot? That can not be the name of a city can it?


“Bill, it’s like that in Cut and Shoot too!” -3%er

Well, lookie, lookie. Another one of Officer Ope’s sock puppets deletes his post and RUNS AWAY

Nope. I have not had a chance to read the article, yet, either.

Wild Bill

What do all you guys think about Russ’s offer to go back to the ” No insults and no personal attacks” accord?


Nice lie, Bill. I never offered anything. That’s all in your head. YOU broke it, you fix it.

Moreover, no such accord could ever apply to your troll pals like Officer Ope who stalks & downvotes with a posse of sock puppets, as you you know. Fact that you back such cowardly deceptive behavior shows that you never took the accord seriously.

Wild Bill

Oh, I thought that you were offering to be civil. My mistake.


My God you’re dishonest.


Well, WB. You tried.

Wild Bill

I am surprised that not one person spoke up for him. I wonder if his life is like that, too.


Moron says moron.



Coulda sworn that was :maroon”.


Is that supposed to mean something?


YEAH! Military legend Bill needs permission from a low-IQ cop running 20 sock accounts. LOL

Wild Bill

Coordination not permission. It will have to wait until tomorrow because I have things to do before the rain begins again.

Wild Bill

A good commander listens to his NCOs.

Message received.


I think it would be condicive to gaining traction toward solutions and checks and balances on the threats against our freedom and liberty.

Wild Bill

Yes, no one can deny that Trump is good at destroying political family dynasties! That has to be good for the country.

Truth Jurist

Trump is pretty good at destroying anything he touches. Kind of like Midas, except everything that Trump touches in the end turns to feces. It may take a while, but it happens. Trump is going down.

Do you have any facts to support your conclusions?


So then the Democrats should support Senator Mastriano (Pa) bill ?, As stated from the Senator We know, however, that energy is just one facet of this spiraling economic crisis. Local governments often lean on property taxes to fill widening budget gaps, a strategy that hits residents surviving on fixed incomes the hardest. With more than 2.2 million seniors living in Pennsylvania, this hardship isn’t limited to my district alone. Eliminating property taxes for residents 65 and older could benefit as many as 176,000 seniors currently living below the poverty line. Legislation I introduced last year would extend this relief to elderly… Read more »

Democrats and Rhinos alike are attacking anyone who supports Trump it is very obvious. The elite in both major political parties in the United States have committed to the global plan of action which I have addressed many times before with anyone who reads comments here. Democrats have learned that they do not suffer any consequences for their actions when it comes to accusing others of wrongdoing. The democratic party is flawed & lawless and supported by the rich and the media which they control. There are those in the republican party that are infiltrators claiming to support the party… Read more »

Are “Rhinos” the same as “RINOs”? Just checking to see if I missed a new acronym.

This story – and the government-induced lack of corroboration – reeks of yet another false-flag incident created to push the lying narrative of the Government-Media Complex. We deserve to know the truth!!

Sad thing is, we’ll never get to the bottom of it; the feebs made sure the guy wouldn’t be able to explain himself!

Henry Bowman

I’ve been repeating myself as well, and will keep doing so, in the hopes of waking up a few normies. This country need a Spirit of ’76 wake-up call and we are the ones who need to phone it in!


Yep, you have to wonder about that sometimes, but on the other hand, THEY could just let a situation play out on its own, which seems to be what happened in Parkland.
BTW Parkland happened just after the Vegas shooting which none of the question about have ever been answered.


Were it not for the memory hole and the false flag the Progressive New Left would be helpless in the contest of ideas.


Must have been a hell of a long air hose is all I have to say.


So they went from fertilizer & gas to nail guns. Biden economics. lol


Damn DC did the editor loose his f’ing mind ? That’s just not readable for the pieces you normally write..
