Good guy with a gun stops mass shooting at a nightclub, and you didn’t hear about it

Man practicing shooting with a handgun at the shooting range

Almost two weeks to the day after the horrific Islamic terror attack at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, another man began shooting into a crowd gathered at a nightclub in South Carolina. But instead of piling up multiple gun shot victims, a man with a concealed carry license was able to stop the shooter before he claimed any lives.

Of course, no one has heard much about this story as the mainstream media is certainly not covering it, leaving that duty to local reporters.

According to WISTV 10, Jody Thompson, 32, got into an argument around 3:30 a.m. with another patron of the club and began firing shots towards a crowd that had gathered near the front door. Three people were hit by bullets. When Thompson turned to fire at another, the man pulled out his concealed gun and fired, hitting the shooter in the leg. Thankfully, no one was killed in the shooting and the good guy with the gun will not be facing any criminal charges.

Thompson, on the other hand, is being charged with four counts of attempted murder, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, and unlawful carrying of a weapon.

This is the type of story that the MSM actively avoids because it doesn’t fit their anti-gun narrative. The fact that a law-abiding gun owner in America stopped a mass shooting should be national news. The fact that it’s not should worry everyone reading this.  By the way, I took a carry permit class at Agape Tactical — if you are in middle Tennessee, I highly recommend their excellent instructors and classes!
