We covered how bad Memphis has become Sunday. However, we missed the news from Saturday evening in that city. A Memphis madman has murdered four women, wounded another, then suck-started his pistol. The story isn’t one that the mainstream media wants to cover. Why not? Because Mavis Christian Jr. was a career felon for almost three decades. He shouldn’t have had guns. Gun control did nothing to stop him.
The Liberty Daily has it:
Mavis Christian Jr murdered four female relatives, including a teen, and critically injured another. He then killed himself. It’s a gun-grabber narrative that one would expect to make national news, but there is currently radio silence.
The murderer was a Black man with a rap sheet that dates back to 1996. Laws, if enforced, would have prevented him from owning the firearm he used to shoot women and girls. Therefore, it’s not a story that most in corporate media will want to cover.
From the AP:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — A suspect in Tennessee died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound while on the run Sunday after a series of shootings that killed four of his female relatives and seriously injured a fifth person, police said.
Officers found the body of Mavis Christian Jr., 52, in his car during a manhunt following shootings at three locations in Memphis that left three women and a teenage girl dead and a teenage girl critically wounded, the Memphis Police Department said.
Police said Christian was related to the victims but could not immediately specify how they were related. The names of the victims have not yet been released.
“We are deeply saddened by the tragic and senseless shootings on Saturday … resulting in the deaths of four innocent family members and a fifth victim critically injured,” the police department said in a statement posted on social media. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their loved ones as our community grieves more lives taken by domestic violence.”
