GUNS: Where’s media when massacre is prevented?

On Dec. 22 in Sacramento, Calif., a man grabbed a weapon and opened fire after three armed men tried to break into his home, where children were having a sleepover. He was shot by one of the suspects, but he managed to shoot all three of them, killing one.

Funny how this wasn’t on the front page of every news source: a man defends a whole slumber party of children against home invaders firing guns. Thank goodness he was able to protect everyone. God bless our Second Amendment!

It’s front-page news if a bad guy creates a massacre and then, as some do, kills himself. But not if a good guy stops it.
