What a surprise!!!!! We have been misled....

• A 1997 high school shooting in Pearl, Miss., was halted by the school's vice principal after he retrieved the Colt .45 he kept in his truck.

• A 1998 middle school shooting ended when a man living next door heard gunfire and apprehended the shooter with his shotgun.

• A 2002 terrorist attack at an Israeli school was quickly stopped by an armed teacher and a school guard.

• A 2002 law school shooting in Grundy, VA, came to an abrupt conclusion
when students carrying firearms confronted the shooter.

• A 2007 mall shooting in Ogden, Utah, ended when an armed off-duty police officer intervened.

• A 2009 workplace shooting in Houston, Texas, was halted by two coworkers who carried concealed handguns.

• A 2012 church shooting in Aurora, Colo., was stopped by a member of the congregation carrying a gun.

• At the recent mall shooting in Portland, Ore., the gunman took his own life minutes after being confronted by a shopper carrying a concealed weapon.
2500 times last year alone legal gun owners stopped violent crime when confronted with it long before any police assistance ... that's almost 7 every day, seems like we would hear about some of them.

Of course, you probably didn't know any of this because mainstream media doesn't find it worth reporting.

It's not sensational enough and doesn't fit with their agenda.
What's insane is people who think removing rights from responsible people will somehow keep them safe.

And Florida has the most concealed weapons permits and the lowest violent crime rate in the US.

Go figure!
Chicago has the toughest antigun laws in the country and kills more people than killed in the Middle East.

Go figure!

Facts and rational, clear thinking don’t sell newspapers, or help the 6:00 PM ratings. Emotional and sensational mass murders have a bigger impact. Democrats don’t like fact or clear thinking because then the masses would actually understand how they have been hoodwinked for the past 4 years
