Did you read the headline about the good guy with a gun who stopped the bad guy with a gun?
The story was in the small town papers, but these stories seldom make the national news. They simply aren’t the sort of stories the big media needs.
First, nothing beats tears and angst to help the big media deliver an audience to their advertisers. Second, the good guy story doesn’t fit the narrative of helpless people who need the state to take care of them. It doesn’t fit the story of more gun-control. The big media ignores the dozens of armed self-defense stories each month.
The latest example of this pandering was David Letterman railing against civilian gun ownership. He said we need gun-control to stop mass murder. Letterman and Anderson Cooper conveniently ignored that most of our violent crimes, including assault and murder with a firearm, are committed by a few thousand career criminals. They rejected the solutions that work. They ignore self-defense and incarceration of repeat offenders.
There are more examples of the gun-control bias. The spokeswoman of Moms Demand Action said that civilians don’t stop mass shooters. To quote her directly at 7:23 in this video, she said,
“This (armed defense) has never happened. Data shows it doesn’t happen.”
She lies badly and often. Civilians are much more effective at stopping mass shootings than are the police for a very obvious reason. Civilians have the huge advantage of time since civilians are usually the first ones on the scene. Fatalities drop by 85 percent when a civilian intervenes rather than waiting many minutes for the police to arrive.
