Premeditated Mass Murders Stopped by Armed Citizens

Posted on December 17, 2012 by


If they lie should they die?

There are several documented cases where armed citizens have stopped mass attacks by gunmen.

But do you hear about them?  Are they reported in the main stream news media?  Keep in mind that today’s alleged journalist  influence and shape hundreds of thousands of opinions with their ‘ own opinions’.   That is a lot of power and  it should be held in check.  A free society where the citizens hold mutual respect for each other would have a base of journalist that give you the facts and respect your ability to determine your own opinions on any particular story that they reported on.  Ethical, honest, journalist that respect their readers will report the truth and let the chips fall where they may.  But it seems as though  journalist have no respect for the people anymore.

Because of the lack of ethics and honesty in today’s major news sources  facts are deliberately distorted, made up or not reported at all.  We have a ‘dumbed down’ population of Sheeple.  Citizens depend on the honesty of the media to help them determine how they think a major issue that may affect their life or the lives of those they care about should be addressed.  Particularly with how, what and who we vote for.   Facts actually matter.

Had the truth about guns and the actual violence they have prevented through the years in America been reported we most likely would have a population that looked favorably on open carry of  handguns.  Not even concealed.  Why hide the fact you can protect yourself?    The facts are that Gun Free Zones are Target Rich Environments.  States with less restrictive hand gun laws have less crime overall.    But you will not get those FACTS form the leftist main stream media.

A journalist that skews the truth about a crime or a proposed bill or even presidential candidate should be held up to his peers as nothing less than a charlatan, a repugnant liar,  actually a pox on integrity and truth itself.  All journalist should be repulsed.  They are quite possibly the 4th arm of our government.  In that light they should be held both civilly and criminally responsible for what they publish in a deliberate attempt to shape opinion.  And opinion is about all we get anymore from the leftist media.

GunFreeZoneThis FACT is present in the way the main stream media is clamoring over the Aurora and Newtown mass shootings and the cry for Gun Control laws and an outright ban and confiscation of guns in America.  They have deliberately excluded that these mass murders were committed in GUN FREE ZONES.

I call that journalistic malpractice!  This is where each and every member of the press needs to be held in contempt.  Facts are what make up the news.  Emotion is diatribe and is not journalism.  The truth has no agenda.  Clearly the journalist in America do have an agenda and hence cannot be trusted to report the facts and an many cases the damn story its self.

DISCLAIMER: I am a citizen blogger and not a journalist, I do not get paid and these stories posted on YourDaddy’s Politics are full of my opinion.  That being said I at least try and provide concrete sources for my opinion shaping thoughts penned here.

 Let me list a few: The Pearl, Mississippi school shooting was stopped by the vice principal Joel Myrick with a Colt .45, The Appalachian School shooting was stopped by two students with handguns. Both of the above incidents were stopped by the armed citizens threatening the shooter without firing.

Plans to slay everyone in the Muskegon, Michigan, store and steal enough cash and jewelry to feed their “gnawing hunger for crack cocaine” fell apart for a band of would-be killers after one of their victims fought back.

The Santa Clara gunshop shooting in 1999 was stopped by an armed citizen after the shooter declared that he was going to kill everyone. Police found a list of intended victims in his car. Only the perpetrator, Richard Gable Stevens was shot.

July 13, 2009, in Virginia at the Golden Food Market: The gunman tried to shoot several people, was stopped by a CCW carrier.

Just recently, in Early Texas, armed citizen Vic Stacy shot and stopped a deranged man who had just murdered two neighbors and was firing at police with a rifle. Stacy made a very long shot with his revolver, three times as far as the perpetrator was from the police officer, who had an AR-15 type rifle.

That sounds like a very good story… but it never made the national news.

I wonder who made the decision to spike that story.

Of course, when a mass shooting is stopped by an armed citizen, there are not as many victims. This leads to the charge that it would not really have been a “mass shooting”.
