Hey Piers Morgan, How Come You Don't Report THIS Story?

Via Ace:
Why the Arapahoe School Shooting Ended So Quickly 
Because there was an armed deputy sheriff at the school who raced towards the shooting and ended the attack in just 80 seconds. Thanks to his quick response only one student (still in critical condition) was shot.
That's right, Piers. Sometimes a good guy with a gun can stop bad guys with a gun. In fact, I would say that no "gun free zone" ever stopped mass shootings as effectively as a good guy with a gun.

By the way, the shooter? He was an 18 year old warped anti-gun statist.  Not that the media would tell you so.

Senior Chris Davis, 18, was among many students Saturday trying to make sense of Pierson's shooting rampage.

"He was a weird kid," Davis said. "He's a self-proclaimed communist, just wears Soviet shirts all the time."
 Again, go to Ace to read the best bits, I can't do it justice here. But seriously, where is Piers Morgan? The media of course makes this a non-story. Why? Well there wasn't any deaths for one. I don't blame the media on that one so much though. If it bleeds, it leads. But the second reason: it would interfere with their narrative. This is where I don't accept the excuses. The media loves to take a microscope and affix a spotlight to it to highlight where conventional wisdom has gone amuck. They want to make a difference, they want to show how we shouldn't have to accept things that are wrong simply because it's always been. It's their targets that bother me.

It's ok they go after our national attitude on guns. When people are getting killed, expect a couple of phone calls. But when they have to change their own opinions, when they have to challenge their conventional wisdom, they show how cowardly, stubborn, and closed minded they really are. When we show that a gun, in the right hands, in the right place, and used responsibly at the right time can PREVENT death, well... they go pretty silent, don't they?
