(Info Wars)   The national media ignored a shooting. This could mean that the MSM is coming for your guns, or it could mean that we have so many that it doesn't count as news if no one dies   (infowars.com) divider line 56

Apparently, the author of that blog is upset that the shooter was stopped by an armed off-duty police officer and feels that it should get more airplay because of it.

i think the real lesson here is that austerity works. if you reduce pay to public employees like police officers, they will be forced to take second jobs and we will all be safer.

I remember the Fark thread on it.  Like any thread that involves a gun, it was 700 comments long and every comment boiled down to "SEE?!?!?!"

You're right, InfoWars, we should all get out tits in a twist every time a single person is injured and no one dies. Good point.

Stopped by someone trained and continually tested for stand off situations, not by some delusional nitwit who shoots empty beer cans off a haystack every Tuesday night.

The San Antonio shooting that I heard about on the local Denver news? Then again on the national news? How many people died in that one again?
 
2013-01-03 01:09:09 PM  
Well yeah, it's highly inappropriate to talk about a shooting for 90 days after a shooting. It's in the NRA handbook, people.

It was ignored because only one person was injured. If you don't think there's a grim math at work when it comes to what gains media traction, you're not paying attention.

I have a cousin that thinks you shouldn't get to have an opinion on magazine size until and unless you have actively participated in a gunfight. (He's home from Afghanistan, and appears to be taking his basis for gun rights from the stuff he was given access to over there and why it was required.)

Why would an incident where only one person was injured and no one was killed be in the national news? Local, yes, but national?
 
2013-01-03 01:23:04 PM  
I guess CBS isn't MSM

But in all honestly since, according the CDC, there's and average of 12,000 homicides per year (with almost 9,000 firearm related) so MSM tends to focus on the ones with mass casualties, celebrities or cute white girls none of which happen in San Antonio on Dec 17th
 
2013-01-03 01:24:17 PM  
Snopes sums it up pretty well:

In general, the San Antonio theater shooting received little coverage outside of local news media, primarily because it didn't include any of the factors that typically propel such stories from local to national news: it was not an especially horrific crime (or part of a larger crime), it did not involve any deaths or the wounding of large numbers of people, and it featured no prominent persons: it was a shooting incident in which a single person was injured. The possibility that an armed off-duty law enforcement official may have prevented additional casualties by shooting the gunman might have made the incident more newsworthy than usual, but that aspect of the story is speculative, and as others have observed, the news media tend to highlight negative events rather than positive ones: "reporters don't report buildings that don't burn."
 
2013-01-03 01:27:18 PM  
And if this guy had an A-15, his shooting spree would have been more successful.

And... Did the cop need a. Assault rifle, or was she able to stop him with a hand gun?
 
2013-01-03 01:32:46 PM  
And just think - if Cletus were carrying, too, he could've eliminated the threat posed by the second gun(wo)man. And so on. Mexican standoffs everywhere!
 
2013-01-03 01:33:30 PM  
I've seen this on facebook so often I think I pulled an eye muscle from all the times I rolled my eyes. They're completely oblivious to the fact that it's not an example of a random citizen saving the day. It's an example of a police officer/security officer responding EXACTLY THE WAY THEY'VE BEEN TRAINED TO RESPOND. Which is what I've been effing advocating for anyone who wants to carry a firearm in public, concealed or otherwise. If you want personal protection for your home, go right ahead. If you want personal protection in public, carry some pepper spray or a taser (they make some pretty kickass ones now). Your chances of bringing an attacker to his knees are just as high with those. Your chances of making a fatal mistake are also drastically lower. If you want to carry something that packs a lethal punch, get it registered and regularly prove your competence and mental health, just like we expect our police officers to do.

For everyone who misses the point what they're saying is that he prevented a mass shooting. Trouble is, you can't prove you prevented something like that from happening. So when people ask "how many times has somebody prevented a mass shooting with a gun?" you're being stupid and asking for proof of the tiger rock.

The paranoid freak I know claims he can't secure his guns in his house, because what if he was on the toilet when someone broke down his door? The scary bad man wouldn't wait for the paperwork to be completed so he (the pooper) could defend himself. When he told me this, all I could think was "Pooper, if you seriously think someone will kick down your door while you're taking a dump, you don't need more guns, you need to move to a better neighborhood."

By the way, while she was an off-duty police officer, she was an on-duty security guard. She was not a vigilant, armed citizen that happen to save lives because she had a gun on her. She had a gun on her because it was her job to have one.
 
2013-01-03 01:36:53 PM  
If the media were honestly looking for solutions to gun violence, they should have jumped on the San Antonio to show the difference a good person with a gun can make

Hah. I just realized, apparently the gun nuts don't realize where the gun control advocates are coming from. All along the gun nuts thought we wanted to take guns away from cops.

You silly willies! We're okay with cops having guns still! Holy cow oh my gosh you guys we can be friends now!
 
2013-01-03 01:37:17 PM  
I am for the right of private citizens to own guns and conceal/carry. That being said this author misses some points. If it were an armed private citizen who did this, then the author would have tangible proof to reinforce his opinion. But, the offender was taken down by an "off-duty police officer". Police officers are never truly "off duty" and from the extent of my knowledge are required to carry their backup gun with them when "off duty".

The classic liberal argument isn't that all guns should be banned, but rather only trained professionals such as police and military should have the guns; not private citizens. In this particular situation I believe the story actually backs up the classic liberal view towards guns. It was the private citizen who was endangering the public with his gun and it was a formally trained professional law enforcement officer who neutralized the armed citizen.

Rebut their vigilante fetishism with this:
On a busy Friday morning in Manhattan, nine pedestrians suffered bullet or fragment wounds after police unleashed a hail of gunfire at a man wielding a .45 caliber pistol who had just killed a former co-worker.

Soon, the Bear Patrol is created, a useless organization which makes use of helicopters, police cars, even a B-2 Spirit. Homer feels happy to know that the Bear Patrol is doing their job, as there are no bears around. Lisa call it "specious reasoning" and tries to explain, with the help of a rock "that keeps tigers away", that since there are no tigers around, the rock must be working. Homer contemplates this and offers to buy Lisa's tiger-repellant rock, to which Lisa agrees knowing better than to try and explain further.

Your armed guard appears to be the 'tiger rock' in this scenario since the armed guard was across the street and didn't have shiat to do with what happened (or didn't happen) in the restaurant.

I also managed to make it through the entire day on December 16 without being killed by a mass shooter. Similarly, not a single national newscast has reported that amazing story.

Yes, as a private property owner, the owner chose, as is his discretion, to allow for an armed guard. And unlike the incident in Manhattan this year, luckily the innocent public was not harmed.
