    Thumbs down PBS Pushes Claim That ‘Good Guy With A Gun’ Is A Myth

    The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. That simple sentence is one of the truest statements one can make when it comes to gun control. Bad people continue to get their hands on firearms regardless of the myriad laws meant to prevent them from doing so. The only thing that stops them, though, is someone who is not a criminal and is also armed. - Tom Knighton

    Bad people don’t like it when good people shoot back. However, over at PBS—you know, the Public Broadcasting Service that our tax money pays for—it seems that someone doesn’t believe that the idea of a good guy with a gun is a real thing. ...

    Insanity loves a voice. Using their own logic then LEO's only need to show up to the next mass shooting with batons, they can club the heavily armed whacko mass murderer to death.

    Reality is tough for some people to understand. There is very little chance of someone else defending you. You are your own first responder.

    Exclamation

    PBS gets FEDERAL funds to stay on the air. The Fascists in Congress doesn't "allow" the executive branch to cut funds to organizations that were already allotted by Congress. Congress is the enemy. They won't protect our borders and put yet another Amnesty Bill through with no border wall funding. FASCISTS in what WAS the Congress should be placed under arrest. THAT is what President Lincoln did when the Civil War Started. Whether we want to believe it or not, WE are at WAR with the Fascists.

    This is going to get WORSE.

    Without looking at the biased report, I'm going to guess that since lunatics continue to commit mass shootings in order to get their one second of fame via the biased media, the idea of good-guys-with-guns-stopping-bad-guys-with-guns is pooh-poohed by the biased media.

    The problem is, of course, that there aren't enough good guys with guns out in the world, and that some good guys aren't carrying 100% of the time lest they run smack into a no-gun "safe zone" sometime during their day. Helping to stop a terror attack and/or mass shooting (not sure how they are different, multiple bad guys?) should be part of all CCW training, even at the most basic level.

    There is no question in any thinking person's mind that any potential mass shooting should result in only two causalities - the first victim (by the perp) and the perp (by the good guy standing next to him), in that order. Do this a couple times in a row and you'll see the attempts drop off dramatically.

    But as long as there are gun-free zones filled with soft targets, and crazy people looking to be on the news, the mass shootings will continue. No laws have or will stop them. The perps clearly don't fear laws, even those issued by our Creator. Since that is the case, let's try another proven motivator - fear of getting shot.
