(CBrief) – The young bank staffer who killed five of his fellow workers and wounded several others during a mass shooting in Louisville, Ky., earlier this month left behind “extensive” notes that should have left Democrats uncomfortable.

“Authorities have revealed that the man who murdered five of his co-workers at” the “bank left two notes explaining his actions, which included the liberal narrative that it is ‘too easy’ to buy a gun in America, especially for someone with mental problems,” the Western Journal reported.

According to previous reports, Old National Bank employee Connor Sturgeon, aged 25, entered the business on April 10 and opened fire. Louisville police officers responded to the scene and fatally shot Sturgeon, also causing injury to one officer who had graduated just ten days prior from the police academy.

CNN reported that the perpetrator left behind “very extensive” notes claiming that he wanted to demonstrate how easy it is for a mentally disturbed individual to obtain a firearm. Sturgeon purchased his gun legally a week prior to the shooting and successfully passed all the necessary background checks.

His family stated that while he had been struggling with depression, they did not believe he was capable of carrying out mass murder.

“While Connor, like many of his contemporaries, had mental health challenges which we, as a family, were actively addressing, there were never any warning signs or indications he was capable of this shocking act,” the family said in a statement.

Lying about suffering from mental illness on a federal firearms background check form is a felony, but it appears to happen often.

According to Breitbart, there have been at least 30 high-profile mass shootings going back to 2007, when the perpetrators all passed background checks. But in spite of the fact that background checks do not appear to be particularly effective to many, Democrats continue to push for more extensive checks as some sort of panacea to curb such shootings.

In fact, CNN hosts and personalities attempted to spin the Louisville shooting as the killer proving his point. On Saturday, host Jim Scuitto said it was easy, “particularly in a state such as Kentucky,” for mentally ill persons to purchase a firearm.

“[Sturgeon] claims he wanted to show how easy it is for someone in America with serious mental illness to just go out and buy a gun. We should note, under Kentucky state law, he was only required to fill out [a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives]form and undergo a criminal records check,” said Scuitto, according to Breitbart News.

“Particularly in a state such as Kentucky, it is true, is it not, that it’s fairly easy to get a weapon, well, under any circumstances, and even if you do have a record of mental health issues?” Scuitto said, according to Breitbart.

Meanwhile, another high-profile individual appears to have also lied about past drug use on a firearms form — Hunter Biden.

In January, the U.S. Secret Service said it had “located” hundreds of documents related to Hunter’s purchase of a handgun that was later found after being discarded in a dumpster behind a small grocer in Delaware.

“Hunter Biden’s sister-in-law, Hallie Biden, reportedly threw his handgun in a trash container in Delaware in 2020. Agents with the Secret Service and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) were reportedly involved,” said a report filed by the Secret Service and government watchdog Judicial Watch.

Hunter and Hallie, the wife of Hunter’s late brother Beau, were reportedly having an affair at the time.

Initially, the Secret Service denied having the records, noted Judicial Watch. “The Secret Service’s changing story on records raises additional questions about its role in the Hunter Biden gun incident,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton noted in a statement. “One thing is clear, Judicial Watch’s persistence means the public may get records that the Secret Service suggested didn’t exist.”

At issue is Hunter’s response to a question on a federal gun form asking about prior drug use.

According to reports, the first son said he did not use drugs, though he has admitted to a raging cocaine habit, and video, as well as photographic evidence of that drug use, was found on the infamous laptop he allegedly abandoned at a Delaware computer repair shop.
