The radio and media at large isn’t mentioning the exact details, however this is a very important thing. FPS Russia is a driving force in the pro-gun movement concerning youth. The videos published are very pro-gun, and reach literally millions of impressionable youth showing them that firearms just aren’t for people in movies or video games.
From the details, it was not a robbery turned murder. His guns were still left in the house. So, why was he murdered mob style?
This represents a second well known player in the firearms industry to be killed in the past week. Only a few days ago, John Novseke was killed in a somewhat mysterious car crash.
Interestingly enough, one of FPSRussia’s recent videos featured him tied to a chair, held hostage and about to be shot.
There is alot of stuff going around out on the web surrounding the case of Mr Ratliff.
Let us make clear that Mr. Ratliff is NOT the star of FPS Russia (Kyle Myers, Aka Dmitri Potapoff). He has tweeted several times since the incident asking for respect for the family. He is not believed to have any involvement of any sort with the demise of Mr. Ratliff.
Additionally, more details are developing, one new fact seems to be that Mr Ratliff was killed on a rural Georgia road, and not tied up in a office as earlier reported. He was armed at the time, however was not able to respond to the threat with his own firearms. This fact points at it is quite likely that the murderer was well known to the deceased.
