“Texas” Man Kills Five

So CBS would have us believe.

5 killed in Texas shooting, including 8-year-old child; manhunt underway for suspect
UPDATED ON: APRIL 29, 2023 / 1:01 PM / AP\A Texas man went next door with a rifle and began shooting his neighbors, killing an 8-year-old and four others inside the house, after the family asked him to stop firing rounds in his yard because they were trying to sleep, authorities said Saturday.

An unidentified Texas man, eh? How, because for hours, I’ve seen other outlets ID’g the alleged perp. Case in point:

Update: Mexican National Accused of Gunning Down Five People in Texas Identified – Police Say Suspect was Drunk</a
Apr. 29, 2023 12:05 pm
The good news is police have identified the man allegedly responsible for the deaths of the five people. His name is Francisco Oropeza, a 39-year-old Mexican national.

Oh. A Mexican national, not a Texas man after all. And according to OAN (at 7:48 AM), he’s using a Mexican consular card as ID.

Do nore the timestamps for those stories. CBS had to ignore things known to other outlets for hours, just to pretend it’s a “Texas man.”

Hint: Mexican consulates typically issue the matrícula consula to Mexican nationals who are in the US illegally, just so they’ve got some sort of ID.

The card is extremely popular for Mexicans in the United States without other ID. Lack of identification is one of many reasons why undocumented immigrants do not use banks. It’s a way for the Mexican government to keep track of its citizens for consular and tax purposes, collect data on them, and provide identification.

When the anti-gun types start screeching over this shooting and demanding more gun control, please point out the likelihood that the shooter was an illegal, and thus prohibited from lawfully possessing a firearm.

(g)It shall be unlawful for any person—
(5)who, being an alien—
(A)is illegally or unlawfully in the United States; or
to ship or transport in interstate or foreign commerce, or possess in or affecting commerce, any firearm or ammunition; or to receive any firearm or ammunition which has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce.
