If you needed further evidence (you don’t) that many on the left have gone completely unhinged (they have), one needs only to look to Senator Patty Murray (D-WA). In her efforts to promote the Democrats’ gun control legislation, she clowned herself with a talking point that few, even on the left, would willfully adopt when sober.
Mental health issues don't cause mass shootings, guns do. Vilifying people who have a mental illness won't help end mass shootings. The commonsense gun reform legislation that's already passed the House will. @senatemajldr, let's have a vote.

Even most Democrats are willing to acknowledge that the wrong people wielding firearms are the root cause of mass shootings. If it were the guns themselves that “cause” mass shootings, as Murray contends, then we’d all be in a whole lot bigger trouble. Considering there are hundreds of millions of firearms currently in circulation, most owned by law abiding citizens, the current rash of mass shootings would be nothing compared to the unfathomable violence caused by these evil inanimate objects.
As Jessie Jane Duff, Campaign Advisory Board Member for Women for Trump, noted on Twitter, granting the characteristic of cause to firearms is something one might expect to read about in The Onion.
Apparently, guns are free thinking, self-firing, and cause mass shootings. They aren't caused by crazed individuals seeking to cause carnage.
No, this is not The Onion.

Mental health is demonstrably the root cause for all mass shootings because it takes someone who is detached from reality to undertake these heinous acts. The assailants are suicidal as they realize the majority of the time the gunman is killed in the act. They demonstrate a psychopathic disregard for human life and the lack of acceptance for societal norms of sociopaths. Many, including the three alleged recent shooters in Gilroy, El Paso, and Dayton, were at one time medicated to deal with known issues.
Those who are calling to address mental health problems in America because of gun violence are not vilifying people who have mental illness, as Murray contends. It is a demonstration of both compassion and self-protection that Americans want to address the issues that are clearly doing harm to the mentally ill as well as anyone the very small number of mass shooters would turn into their victims.
Murray is simply playing politics, trying to take advantage of a politically charged situation to benefit her party and to advance her agenda. She, as many Democrats are doing lately, is trying to divide us over emotions.
Conservatives on Twitter responded:
This ignores the documented mental instability of numerous mass murderers. It’s also straw man, as no one is conflating the two — in fact, there is deliberate care to avoid stigmatizing anyone. How do you criminalize private transfers without a national registry, Senator? https://t.co/bmdUVYUp7f

A sitting US senator @PattyMurray has shown mental illness. Like a plot of a @StephenKing novel – where objects take control of humans, she believes that guns take control of human hosts & force them to murder – this is nuts, has never happened yet she apparently believe this ? https://t.co/DSj30c6hZ8

Vilifying people who have mental illness won't end mass shootings. But, vilifying law abiding gun owners will end mass shootings, or something.
Guns don't cause mass shootings, PEOPLE do. (especially people that are mentally ill) https://t.co/B3FZCtNMjG

Undeniably untrue. Not even debatable. Your keyboard didn't produce that tweet, @PattyMurray – you manipulated the keys to get it to do what you – you, not the keyboard – wanted it to do. Without it, you'd find another keyboard to use, if you felt strongly about it. https://t.co/3NfNYqbhQW

We are currently forming the American Conservative Movement. If you are interested in learning more, we will be sending out information in a few weeks.

Most “Conservative” News Outlets Are on the Big Tech Teat
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), an Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCP). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would make the bold move. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken free from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:
- MyPillow: Use promo code “NOQ” to get up to 66% off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- ZStack: Improve your immune system with the Z-Stack protocol or rejuvenate your body from vaccines or shedding with Z-DTox by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them JD sent you in your request to buy gold and it will help us… AND (wait for it) you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- MyPatriotSupply: Stock up on long-term food, survival gear, and other things that you’ll need just in case things don’t recover and we keep heading towards apocalypse.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
