Colt Suspends Production Of AR-15 Rifles For Consumers
The Topline: Gun maker Colt announced Thursday that it will stop producing rifles for the consumer market due to weak demand but the move comes as scrutiny mounts over its popular AR-15 gun and its use in several mass shooting incidents.

Colt insisted the move was due to fluctuations in the U.S. gun market despite the national debate about gun control saying in a statement that the company was still “committed to the Second Amendment.”
The West Hartford, Connecticut-based company said it will still produce rifles for the police and military contracts and will sell handguns in the consumer market.
The Colt's AR-15 was the first semiautomatic version of the M-16 assault rifle sold to civilians and after Colt's patents expired the term AR-15 became a generic descriptor for other similar rifles sold by other gun makers.
AR-15 style rifles were used in Parkland, Florida, Pulse Nightclub and the Sandy Hook mass shootings.
Adam Winkler, a gun policy expert, told the Associated Press that with the decision was probably linked to internal company issues; Colt filed for bankruptcy protection in 2015, blaming excessive debt and the loss of military contracts.

Memo reveals a House Republican strategy on shootings: downplay white nationalism, blame left | Tampa Bay Times
Congressional Republicans recently circulated talking points on gun violence that falsely described the El Paso massacre and other mass shootings as “violence from the left.”

A document obtained by the Tampa Bay Times and sent by House Republicans provides a framework for how to respond to anticipated questions like, “Why won’t you pass legislation to close the ‘gun show loophole’ in federal law?” and “Why shouldn’t we ban high-capacity magazines?" The answers are boilerplate Republican arguments against tougher gun restrictions.

But it also included this question: “Do you believe white nationalism is driving more mass shootings recently?” The suggested response is to steer the conversation away from white nationalism to an argument that implies both sides are to blame.

Common red flag in gunmen is anger toward women - Marin Independent Journal
The man who shot nine people to death last weekend in Dayton, Ohio, seethed at female classmates and threatened them with violence.

The man who massacred 49 people in an Orlando nightclub in 2016 beat his wife while she was pregnant, she told authorities.

The man who killed 26 people in a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, in 2017 had been convicted of domestic violence. His ex-wife said he once told her that he could bury her body where no one would ever find it.

The motivations of men who commit mass shootings are often muddled, complex or unknown. But one common thread that connects many of them — other than access to powerful firearms — is a history of hating women, assaulting wives, girlfriends and female family members, or sharing misogynistic views online, researchers say.

As the nation grapples with last weekend’s mass shootings and debates new red-flag laws and tighter background checks, some gun control advocates say the role of misogyny in these attacks should be considered in efforts to prevent them.

The fact that mass shootings are almost exclusively perpetrated by men is “missing from the national conversation,” said Gov. Gavin Newsom of California on Monday. “Why does it have to be, why is it men, dominantly, always?”

Classmate Says Dayton Shooter Connor Betts Targeted Her in High School: ‘We Predicted He Would Do This’
Jessica Masseth was months into her sophomore year at Bellbrook High School in Ohio when she started getting disturbing text messages from a freshman named Connor Betts.

Betts texted that Masseth was on his “rape list,” describing in detail “what he wanted to do” to her, she said—even sending her the list of all of his proposed victims to prove she wasn’t the only one.

Finally, Masseth said she had enough and went to the police.

“I was not surprised at all when I heard his name on the news yesterday,” she said. “We predicted he would do this 10 years ago.”
Police said they do not have a motive for Betts’ deadly rampage, but Masseth, other classmates, and ex-girlfriends said he expressed violent attitudes going back a decade.
Police said Betts arrived in Dayton’s downtown entertainment district Saturday night in his father’s car with with his younger sister, Megan, and a male acquaintance. Betts fatally shot his sister and wounded the acquaintance, who survived, police said. The acquaintance is not suspected to have played a role in the attack, officials say.

Is there a growing far-right threat online? - BBC News
"Neo-Nazi ideology does not attract the masses in Austria anymore. So it made sense to modernise their appearance, to modernise the language and to some extent to also modernise their ideas.

"They have replaced terms that have been considered historically stained by newer terms that are more appealing to a broader public. For example they don't speak of mass deportation - they speak of 're-migration'. They say, 'we're not racist, we're ethnopluralist.'"
