Default Good Guy With a Gun

Why aren't all the news media people extolling a guy with a gun saving about a hundred people at the Kenyon Mall.

I think you know why they aren't.

Look on his right side tucked in his pants in the photo.

Yup, somebody mentioned this yesterday, and I still haven't seen the TV interviews of this guy and others like him who helped save people.

They love to interview victims and people scared half out of their minds. Makes for great drama, a little blood is always a bonus and any picture of a grieving Mom is a real keeper! A couple soundbites from the "Brave LEO'S" Bosses and a Republicrat and youve got a wrap!

You expect anything good to come from mainstream media? They are as corrupt as our government... glad he was brave enough to help those in need.

It does not fit their agenda/narrative, so why help the opposition prove their point.
When are people going to wake up and smell the 'crap'. It is up to ALL OF US to do our part to fight this indoctrination every chance we get.

I actually seen a pic on Facebook basically describing the stupidity of gun laws. It was a capital 'l' tiled sideways and said "when you turn the letter 'L' sideways, it could look like a gun and scare people. Therefore, should be removed from the alphabet. Learning to draw guns could also teach our children how to make them. It's better off removing the letter". It was sarcasm, but it's accurate how the government is handling this. I'm Not even in the states and I think it's a bit far.

Sorry, not gun laws, but the people who are using them selectively to fit their needs in having them banned. Like Morgan pierce.

Sad but true. People just don't seem to get it as a group that laws only stop those who choose to obey them. They do nothing to prevent crimes and terrorism. Laws are designed to punish those who break them after the fact, and only if there is enough evidence to convict the accused. If the main stream media was to put this out to the public, along with the fact that LAC are an effective means of preventing these tragic events, they would esentially be (pardon the pun) shooting themselves in the foot.

You hit the nail square on the head with your post Jim. The press will never willingly lead the sheep to ensure their own safety. It goes against the wishes of their rank and file.
