“Good Guy with a Gun Stops a Bad Guy with a Gun”

A “good guy with a gun stopped a bad guy with a gun” in Florida. Apparently, a shooter opened fire at a school event in Titusville, Florida, and a legally armed bystander shot the shooter. I think this happened yesterday. But have we heard anything about this from the mainstream news media, a.k.a. “fake news” media? Nope. The reason we haven’t heard anything about it is because such a story goes against the gun control narrative of many in the media. If there was no armed bystander there to take out the shooter and the shooter was thus able to shoot and kill many innocent people, THEN we would hear about it.

The social activists in the news media go along with the gun control agenda because many of them don’t actually think rationally. Like Donald Trump, their views and advocacies and agendas are emotion-driven, not rational. On the gun issue, for example, there was a nightclub shooting in Florida in which 49 people were murdered by a gunman. Florida has a law that bans firearms from establishments in which liquor is sold. But — and here is the argument that we never (or rarely if ever) hear on gun discussions on the Today Show, or on Face the Nation — if just one person there at that nightclub had been armed, he could have taken out the shooter early on and saved perhaps most of those 49 innocent people.

You see, the gun controllers don’t understand that gun control laws only disarm law-abiding people, not criminals or psychopaths. Criminals don’t obey laws against assault, rape or murder. Why would they then decide to obey gun laws? So, the gun banners end up disarming innocent people and making them defenseless. But many people, especially in the news media, don’t even want to consider the idea of an armed good guy taking out a bad guy who is shooting innocent people. Because many people are guided by emotion and not rational thought. The anti-gun marches and demonstrations especially since the February, 2018 Parkland, Florida school shooting have consisted of extremely hysterical people, mainly young people.

I have some more to say about gun control in a post I’m working on on authoritarianism and collectivism. That will probably be finished in the next few days.
