Over the weekend, 22-year-old suspect Anderson Lee Aldrich allegedly opened fire at Club Q — a gay nightclub in Colorado Springs, CO — leaving at least 5 dead in his wake, and another 25 injured by the attack.
Heavy.Com reports on the heinous attack:
The shooter burst into the nightclub with a long rifle and opened fire inside just before midnight, Colorado Springs Police Lieutenant Pamela Castro said in an early morning news conference on November 20. Aldrich was subdued by heroic patrons, who were credited with saving lives, Castro said. One disarmed the suspect and beat him with his own gun, according to NPR.
No officer fired shots, Castro said, and two firearms were located at the scene.”
Details are still surfacing regarding the attack and the suspected shooter. Still, it’s not difficult to deduce the ultimate motivation for the horrifying, deadly attack — and, frankly, as more and more details come to light, more and more seems to come together. It ultimately appears to point back to none other than former President Donald Trump, albeit in a bit of a roundabout way.

Included in that piece was the disturbing revelation that Anderson Lee Aldrich is actually the grandson of none other than Randy Voepel — an outgoing MAGA Republican California House Representative and former mayor of Santee, California. Voepel currently represents the 71st District in the San Diego area.
Randy Voepel is no stranger to controversy and scandal, as the Trump-devout Republican lawmaker faced heavy calls for his expulsion from the state Assembly in the direct aftermath of the violent January 6th Capitol insurrection, following threatening remarks in which Voepel openly compared the deadly attack to the Revolutionary War.
Voepel, who lost his ass in his Republican primary election this year, said in a San Diego Union-Tribune article just three short days after the deadly insurrection, “This is Lexington and Concord. First shots fired against tyranny. Tyranny will follow in the aftermath of the Biden swear-in on January 20th.” The Union-Tribune adds that Voepel “later tweeted that he condemned violence and lawlessness.”
Local CBS8 confirms that they “investigated the claim that Assemblyman Voepel is related to Anderson Lee Aldrich through a background check system and uncovered Republican Assemblyman Voepel’s daughter is the mother of the Colorado Springs shooting suspect.”
