Keith Ratliff was a fervent Second Amendment gun advocate and believed all Americans should be able to possess assault weapons.
In a rather macabre bit of irony, a self-professed "gun nut" who was a YouTube channel producer for fellow gun enthusiasts was found fatally shot in the head in his Carnesville, Ga., home on Jan. 3. Police are investigating the case as a homicide.
Keith Ratliff, 32, was a channel producer for the popular FPSRussia firearms channel on YouTube, according to FoxNews.com. The channel boasts 3.4 million subscribers and has more than 537 million video views. The videos largely consist of a man with a Russian accent test firing various high-powered firearms. The channel is ranked as one of the top 10 channels on YouTube.
Police found numerous weapons at the crime scene, according to WSB-TV. Some of the weapons were even manufactured by Ratliff himself. "He (Ratliff) did sustain a gunshot wound that was not self-inflicted, Mike Ayers of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation told FoxNews.com

It looks like the commie libs are getting serious about their death threats against Americans.
It’s on, and has been for a while.
What a tone to use when reporting a man’s death.
Media and O’s buddies are stirring up so much hatred towards the “gun nuts”, “the rich” and the Americans who do not ascribe to O’s decadent, heathenistic agenda, that it is no wonder the real crazies are taking a toll.

Surprise, horse lady...
What, he was not as skilled as Vince Foster?
suspected my ass.
Let's allow the Georgia authorities to investigate before jumping to conclusions.
Tone? Didn’t mean to imply that the mans death wasn’t a tragic crime. Just strange timing when Obama is whipping up Anti-Gun hysteria. (Funny how libs can create the violent atmosphere they decry yet never get blamed for it)
That’s not the same guy I’ve seen on YT vids, with the lousy Russky accent, blowing-up stuff.
“What a tone to use when reporting a mans death.”
“What a tone to use when reporting a mans death.”
Prayers to his family. I hope they can locate who murdered him. The comments from the left on that blog are proving how unthoughtful and cruel (whichever way you see things as this), part of the country is to ridicule his death.
I think he meant the tone of the article. Which is positively horrible, ansell is right. Ugh.
>>What a tone to use when reporting a mans death.<<
Liberals (as all the LSM are) despise freedom. They need to control people b/c they have so little self-respect.
The tallest blade of grass is cut first.
Sounds like Biden wasn’t happy enough with the 26 in Newtown and had somebody else assassinated.
jakerobins, I meant the newspaper, not you.
It is shocking how they report this man’s murder to us, and no one even knows who the killer is yet, or possible motives or anything, it is a murder of what we can assume at this point, is just an innocent fellow citizen.
To kill a gun “nut” at what sounds like close range you’d either have to be
- a close, trusted associate
- extremely lucky
- a pro
- or d) - all of the above
“It looks like the commie libs are getting serious about their death threats against Americans.”
They always have been. They were just too timid to act.
So I’ve read he was found shot in his office, found shot in his home, and found shot by the side of the road.
To make it even more of a victory report, or “gloating” as haroldeveryman well chosen word describes it, the newspaper even placed a link/ad for their anti-second amendment petition, right in the middle of the reporting of this second amendment defender’s murder.
It is sobering to see how our own deaths and murders as just regular joes, will be reported, if the media knows that we don’t support democrat politics.
He’s not a real Russian, just a gun guy who makes great videos with a rediculous fake accent.
Yep. Quite a few things don’t add up......He was surrounded by his guns yet the wife says he would have to “feel threatened” to have them out. Be carefull out their Gun “Nuts”.....Sadly all my firearms were in a tragic accident when I went boating this summer on the lake.
My suspicion would be that he met someone to purchase and expensive gun, maybe an antique had the money in his hand to hand the guy and got zapped for the money.
When I go to buy something like that, I do not have the money in my wallet, but instead in an envelope, counted at my leisure.
Yep ... Some good grins .......
Wait for it ..... Oh and listen to his crew swearing after the main event !
Funny stuff ...
I don’t even know how to address the negative comments and polices out there any longer from the left and the radicals, without seeming to go far off the chart. I only know from my own mind and from my upbringing as a child, these things are just about evil-like.
Heck yeah. I love watching that numbskull’s vids. He needs to be more careful. Whatever that was flying off the Ford truck barely missed him and must have nailed one of the crew.
Being a high-profile "gun nut", he's NOT going to be taken down by some random person. The killer knows this guy is armed to the teeth, so he has to be very careful.
My guess? Pro. Like you said.
All it's going to take is a few more of these "random" assasinations and the "gun nuts" in this country will become quiet. Very quiet.
Watch for Wayne Lapierre to have a mysterious "accident".
Yeah he was lucky !
