The coverage following the terror attack in Orlando has been covered endlessly by the media for weeks now as they try to convince the country we need more gun control. Well, another mass shooting just happened in South Carolina, and they’ve been completely silent about it. Care to guess why?
The incident occurred in the early hours of Sunday morning in Lyman, South Carolina, where Jody Ray Thompson became upset outside of the Playoffz nightclub around 3:30 a.m. According to the Spartanburg Herald-Journal, the 32-year-old Lyman resident then pulled out a firearm and started shooting into the nearby crown, hitting and wounding several people.
However, unfortunately for Thompson, someone in the crowd had a concealed carry permit, and they weren’t about to become a victim. So the man pulled out his own pistol and fired back, hitting Thompson in the leg and stopping his rampage instantly.
Thompson has since been charged with four counts of attempted murder. As for the hero who stopped the potential mass casualty event, he’s not facing any charges because he was legally carrying a firearm and used it in self-defense.
According to Bearing Arms, Thompson has a lengthy criminal record and shouldn’t have even had a gun to begin with. But once again we see that the feel-good laws enacted to prevent criminals from getting guns didn’t actually prevent a criminal from getting a gun. Thankfully, there was a good guy there with a gun or things would have turned out much worse.
Sadly, you won’t hear stories like this in the liberal media because it doesn’t fit their agenda for more gun control. Meanwhile, the only thing the laws they’re pushing for would do is render people like the hero above defenseless in the face of danger.
Trump was right once again. He said that if someone were able to shoot back at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, that the casualties would have been much fewer than they were. Well, it appears as if this story is proof that what he said was true.
