Usually, when there is a school shooting, the tragedy acts as a clarion call to the left to start advocating for more gun control legislation.
However, the talking heads in the lamestream media have remained notably silent since the shooting at Arapahoe High School late last week. No one was killed in that shooting. However, two people were shot.
The gunman killed himself after only 80 seconds.
The media won’t tell you why the gunman killed himself after 80 seconds. Therefore, we’ll just enjoy Glenn Beck explaining it to us.
It’s because there were armed officers at the school.
In other words, the school wasn’t so “gun-free” that it couldn’t have armed officers on location. As NRA President Wayne LaPierre has said: “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”
That statement was met with ridicule by the various factions of left-wing nimwittery that infest our media properties.
It turns out that LaPierre was totally right.
The other reason that the media won’t talk about the shooting is because the shooter was using a shotgun. In other words, he wasn’t using a gun that was considered “politically incorrect” (i.e., an assault rifle or a semi-automatic pistol). In fact, the gun he was using was given a thumbs-up by Vice President Joe Biden.
The media don’t want to attack one of their own, after all.
