(spokesperson for the FPS Russia Youtube Show)
Keith Ratliff, the manager of FPS Russia, the 3rd most popular youtube channel was found dead yesterday, tied up to a chair and shot in the back of the head.
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.
John was taken too early. Please join us in providing all the support we can for the Noveske family. Noveske Rifleworks sent this note to share with our readers:
We would like to thank everyone for their support, thoughts, and prayers sent. It means a lot to his family, friends, and co-workers to see how many he touched in such a positive way.
At this time we know there are a lot of individuals wanting to offer assistance in any way or send flowers for the family. Instead, we ask that a donation be made with the link below which has been set-up in the name of his amazingly strong and wonderful children, Abe, Elgin and Geneva for school or any future needs. We know this is what John would want us to do.

John Noveske died last night in a vehicle accident. We know that John was well respected by the industry and was considered a friend by many.
Noveske Rifleworks has issued the following statement:
“Noveske Rifleworks would ask you to remember the passing of our founder, John Noveske, who died Friday, January 4th 2013 in an automobile accident.”
“John planned for all eventualities, and wanted to ensure any changes would be as seamless as possible for our customers, dealers, suppliers, employees and friends. While this will be a trying time, we do not expect a change in the day to day operations of Noveske Rifleworks. We would like to thank you for your support as we deal with our loss, and would ask that instead of flowers, you consider a donation to a cause we will announce at later date.”
“John was more than just the founder of Noveske Rifleworks, he was a loving husband and father, and caring friend.”
