If you’re wondering why news reports about the alleged west Texas mass shooter have died down much faster than previous mass shootings, it’s because the details that are emerging do not jibe with the gun control agenda being promoted by mainstream media. The more we learn about the alleged gunman and how he acquired the firearm, the clearer it becomes that no measure of gun control would have prevented this mass shooting.
First, it was revealed that the suspect had failed a background check. This was instantly pounced on by many Democrats who believed that meant it was a legal private sale in which background checks aren’t required. This would mean their universal background checks would have done the trick.
The response from the left was predictable. They thought they had the silver bullet (pun intended) to counter naysayers among gun owners’ rights activists who say universal background checks would be ineffective in the vast majority of cases where criminals get their hands on firearms and use them to commit crimes.
Yay for gun control…
A new report indicates police believe the gun was illegally manufactured and sold by a man in Lubbock, Texas. If this turns out to be true, and it’s unlikely police would be raiding the suspect’s home if they didn’t have a solid case to build upon, then that means no gun control measure would have stopped it. Not universal background checks. Not “assault weapons” bans. Not mandatory buybacks. Nothing.
As Texas Governor Greg Abbott noted, gun control legislation is designed to harm lawful gun owners, not criminals who find ways to circumvent the system. That’s the nature of criminals, after all.
Law-enforcement say they identified a person they suspect illegally manufactured & sold the rifle used in the Odessa shooting.
We want to keep guns out of hands of criminals who break the law…
…without infringing on the rights of law-abiding Texans.https://t.co/zQfqjh2tfh

As gun rights pundit Dana Loesch noted, the system worked as it was supposed to work. The suspect was denied gun ownership through legal means by not passing a background check. So, he went onto the black market where laws are meaningless and acquired a firearm illegally. This case doesn’t help the gun control cause. It reiterates what 2nd Amendment defenders already know.
Exactly. The background check system WORKED & the murderer was denied. Someone committing a felony by illegally manufacturing, selling firearms on the black market doesn’t care how much you “expand” BGCs — he’s still doing business. It’s the law-abiding who are punished. https://t.co/voMNNkqsqS

Every proposed gun control measure would have harmed law abiding American gun owners. But the west Texas shooter, who allegedly purchased an illegally manufactured firearm, would not have been hampered by the left’s “solutions.”
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,
