(Breitbart) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) pushed gun control Wednesday before the details of the shooting near Molson Coors in Milwaukee were even known.
Breitbart News quoted a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report that the gunman and six innocents had died in the attack. Thereafter police made clear that the number could change as more of the Molson Coors campus was searched.
We are closely following developments surrounding the shooting in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Our prayers are with the families who have lost loved ones and the first responders protecting the community. Congress has a duty to them all to take real action to #EndGunViolence.
— Nancy Pelosi (@SpeakerPelosi) February 26, 2020
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett (D) stressed that the situation was still fluid, saying only that “multiple people” had lost their lives.
No word was given on the number of wounded or possible wounded, or regarding the identification of the shooter or the type of gun used, much less the means by which the gun was acquired. Yet Pelosi tweeted for Congress to take action.
What action could Congress take in a scenario where the facts are not even known?
Milwaukee Gunman Identified as Molson Coors Electrician Anthony Ferrill
The gunman who killed five innocents at Molson Coors, then took his own life, was identified by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel as Anthony Ferrill.
He was a long-time electrician for the brewery.
The Sentinel reports that Ferrill “served in the U.S. Coast Guard from 1987 to 1991 and was honorably discharged, according to Rick Flowers of Milwaukee County Veterans’ Services.”
Ferrill was allegedly involved into an ongoing “dispute” that resulted in violence on Wednesday. A coworker “who asked not to be identified for fear of being disciplined said Ferrill believed he was being discriminated against because he was African American, and that he frequently argued with at least one of the victims.”
Breitbart News reported the shooting on Wednesday, noting that five Molson Coors employees were shot and killed by a sixth employee, who then took his own life.
