What The Media Is Hiding From You Because it Doesn't Fit The 'Official" White House Gun-Grabbing Narrative


By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine

"The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun" - NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, December 2012 Press Conference

In late June 2016, a little over three-and-a-half years after LaPierre made that statement a man by the name of Jody Thompson pulled a gun in the Playoff nightclub in South Carolina, started firing into the crowd, shot three people and the fouth potential victim, who had a valid concealed weapons permit, pulled his own gun, and shot Thompson in the leg.

None of the victims' injuries were life threatening. 

Thompson was arrested and has been charged with four counts of attempted murder, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, and unlawful carrying of a weapon.


One might think the news, coming less than a month after the Orlando massacre which killed 49 people, injured over 50 more, would have been blared across every newspaper, reported by every news outlet, but it wasn't, in fact a look at Google search shows only local channels and papers reported it as well as some blogs and alternative media.

That is the bombshell. The MSM refuses to report, inform their viewers/readers of the truth because it did not fit the official gun-grabbing, Obama White House narrative.

Here is the screen shot of a "news" search, five days later, after all mainstream media outlets had more than enough opportunity to report this story. Note, only the top result from "bearing Arms," which is not a mainstream source, is listed.


Doing a regular web search, without specifying news, shows that no mainstream source, ABC News, CBS News, Fox News (excluding local stations), New York Times, Washington Post, etc.... reported this "mass shooting" attempt that was stopped by a "good guy with a gun." If they did, then Google is hiding it from their search results.

Since the shooter was charged with unlawful carrying of a weapon, this goes to make the point many Second Amendment supporters have made time and again, criminals, those most likely to start shooting up a place, generally are not the ones that go through the legal process to obtain a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

Another point worth noting is that in 2014 South Carolina law was changed to allow concealed weapons in bars, leaving it up to establishment owners to determine their own guidelines on whether concealed weapons would be allowed in their establishment.

In Florida, where the Orlando massacre occurred it is still illegal to carry a concealed weapon in "Any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises."


Another site that addressed this story was Snopes, who describes themselves as "an online touchstone of rumor research," asserts less than 24 hours ago, that "Lack of detail about the incident makes it difficult to determine," in regards to an article titled "Media Silent as Concealed Carrier Stops Mass Shooting in Progress at a South Carolina Nightclub."

Considering the "details," were reported five days ago, this claim by Snopes is almost laughable.

Via Snopes:

This characterization of the incident as a "mass shooting in progress" stopped by a legally armed citizen with a carry permit is problematic, though, because accounts of the altercation don't indicate the gunman intended to kill multiple victims (or anyone at all).

Since the suspect was charged with "four counts of attempted murder," by authorities, that could be considered a direct, outright lie by the supposed fact-checking site.

In fact, their very next sentence directly contradicts that assertion when they write "According to Columbia, South Carolina, television station WIS, the suspect got into an argument with another club patron and afterwards pulled out a gun and started shooting towards a crowd gathered in front of the club, striking and injuring three people."

NEWSFLASH for Snopes by a Second Amendment supporter, since obviously the writer is unaware of it because they are gun control proponents... when someone pulls a gun and starts firing it at people, they intend to kill said people. Whther they are a good enough shot to do so, or not, is irrevelant to intent.

Snopes continues to attempt to split hairs, while contradicting themselves yet again with the next assertion:

However, this incident as described doesn't fit the template for a "mass shooting," which typically involves one or more gunmen deliberately setting out to indiscriminately kill multiple randomly-selected victims.

I refer them back to my "NEWSFLASH for Snopes" above. That is exactly what this shooter did.

Snopes continues:

The scenario described here apparently involved a hot-headed, irresponsible gun owner who pulled out a weapon in the heat of a dispute (not someone who brought a gun to a public place with the premeditated intent to shoot it up) and indiscriminately fired it towards a crowd, not necessarily with any intent to kill — or even injure — anyone.

First off, we note that Snopes neglects to address the fact that the "hot-head" was charged with "unlawful carrying of a weapon," and no mention of at all of whether the shooter legally owned his weapon or not. Again, they claim the shooter didn't have "any intent to kill - or even injure - anyone," despite the fact that he fired his weapon into a crowd of people!!! 


Why would Snopes attempt to so ham-handedly and blatantly lie and contradict themselves in their own fact-check article, well that is easily explained with a recent revelation that the main "fact-checker" for Snopes, Kim Lacapria,  just happens to be a "vitriolic left-wing"  gun grabbing liberal.

That same article points out the following about what Ms. Lacapria said about the Orlando shooter, Omar Mateen:

Lacapria even did a fact check on Omar Mateen’s democratic voter registration.  In that article she argued that just because he was a registered democrat, didn’t mean he was actually a democrat.


Fact-Checking Snopes: Website’s Political ‘Fact-Checker’ Is Just A Failed Liberal Blogger

SNOPES and Politifact exposed: bombshell shows staff routinely lie about Trump


The MSM's refusal to report the "news" if it doesn't fit the official "narrative" is one of the main reasons that the U.S. Public's trust in news media remains at all time lows as they continue to garner mistrust and are seen to be extremely liberally biased. If it doesnt fit their agenda, then they don't inform their viewers/listeners.

As to fact-checking sites like Snopes, the video below says it all.
