Doubt we'll ever hear that in the main stream media. A good guy with a gun stopped a bad guy with a gun. Go figure.

this needs to get out there.

it is interesting how much is being reported on deadly shootings lately, and how basically nothing is being reported on citizens stopping criminals with guns. this is even a school shooting & the first i have heard of it....:confused:

but..idk why this surprises me really.....

Bingo!!

It will not make the mainstream media. The non-working, professional TV audience likes blood, gore and sensationalism along with their beloved fattening snacks. Theres not much blood and gore when a school guard disarms a junior terrorist bent on mass murder.

There was mention of the shooting on NBC news, but nothing about the guard disarming the shooter. Another example of selectively reporting only what suits their agenda.

NBC is a world class act in that regard, selectively reporting that is.

NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN must carefully select the people they hire as reporters and news readers, and if a candidate shows any conservitive tendencies they don't get hired...
But the sad part is they apparently believe the public aggrees with them. Even though at least half their audience knows it's BS.

But thank goodness that we have some alternate news sources that sometimes crank out a littlr true news.

One of my friends was in that call.
