Colorado LGBTQ Nightclub Attack: 5 Dead, 18 Injured, Suspect in Custody

It's the sickos holding the weapon, not the weapon

A man armed with a rifle allegedly killed 5 and injured 18 in a Colorado LGBTQ nightclub in Colorado Springs on Sunday. The suspect, identified as Anderson Lee Aldrich, 22, was subdued by two patrons prior to police arrival. The injury totals may rise, according to authorities, since some were transported to hospitals by private parties. It is being investigated as a hate crime.

The suspect allegedly began firing immediately as he entered Club Q, but two patrons confronted him.  Police stated that action saved lives.

“At least two people, whom authorities described as heroes, then confronted Aldrich and fought with him, which saved more lives, police said.

The first 911 call came in at 11:56 p.m. Saturday and an officer was dispatched to the scene seconds later, Lt. Pamela Castro, spokesperson for the Colorado Springs Police Department, told reporters. The first officer arrived at midnight, and the suspect was detained by 12:02 a.m., Castro said.

At least two guns, including a long gun, were recovered from the scene, police said. The shooting is being investigated as a hate crime.” ABC

Once again, the anti-gunners were on deck to complain that it was the gun or Republicans that caused the shooting. Twitter was awash with outrage against “hate” from Republicans and Conservatives. As usual, anti-gunner Shannon Watts was angry against guns being too accessible by extremists.

But Aldrich was no stranger to violence.

“Aldrich had a previous run-in with police in 2021, when police arrested him for allegedly making a bomb threat against two homes in Colorado Springs, according to KRDO.

It was reported to police at the time that Aldrich, then 21, had created a homemade explosive device and had weapons and ammunition. Police arrived to the scene and Aldrich refused to surrender, but was later taken into custody.

Aldrich faced two counts of felony menacing and three counts of first-degree kidnapping for the incident.” Fox

The charges against him apparently were not pursued and the file was sealed, according to It is unclear why.

The weapon is irrelevant, the person is the problem. Thirty-four firefighters, uncountable numbers of police and FBI, and 11 ambulances later, the suspect alone is to blame. Something is seriously wrong with a person who is so riddled with hate that he’d shoot 23 or more people, regardless of their lifestyle. Whether it’s the knife that ended the lives of 4 college students in Idaho, or a rifle that killed 5 and injured 18 in an LGBTQ nightclub in Colorado Springs, it’s the sickos holding the weapons that are the danger.
