It seems that a guy in Texas tried to go into a theater for some shooting but was stopped by an off duty female sheriff deputy who was working at the theater.

Funny how the media forgot to mention this one.

If the media refuses to show people the occasions when gun-owning citiczens save the day, then we'll have to do it ourselves. I posted it on Facebook, expecting nothing, but got a "Like" immediately from an unlikely contact. You never know whose eyes you might open up.

If I didn't know better I might start thinking the media are severely biased and go to great lengths to shape our perceptions and opinion while claiming to be objectively reporting the news.  smiley

The deceased young man's mother was amazingly emotionally and spiritually mature about what happened.  One's heart goes out to her that her son did something this foolish and paid with his life.

Anyone who recalls the Bernhard Goetz incident in 1984 remembers that, after this well publicized event of a civilian defending himself (unfortunately, with an illegally possessed weapon) against four "alleged" muggers in the subway in NYC, subway crime plummeted.  There is no doubt that publicizing these situations has deterrence value.  But as Tom notes, that's not what the media is interested in.
