Glenn can get overwhelmingly maudlin from time to time but when he gets on a story like this, he's the best there is.

Thanks for posting this.

I sure hope my dad brings up this shooting at Christmas , now. I was wondering why the story dried up and just figured the lack of a body count was to blame.

The thing that kills me is the fact no one wants to admit that this kid is a product of the very system our leaders have allowed to develop. Weak emotionally driven and utopic fundamental ideas of a fair and equal socialist state. When faced with the reality of life they snap because of their lack of self confidence and understanding of the real world.

The national media dropped it because of the low body count and the fact that it supports the argument that the pro-2A crowd has been saying: a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun. If they start to even acknowledge that, and people start to look into it, they're going to see how true that fact is. Just doing a quick search, the last time I was able to find a case where a mass public shooter without terrorist connections shot it out with another armed person (whether civilian or police) was on August 1, 1966. Since that date, every time a mass shooter has encountered armed resistance, they've either been killed by the good guy, killed themselves, or surrendered.

I'm sorry if this is a dupe - It probably is. Trying to post while standing at the copier ---

Generally I can't stand Glen Beck, but this was so well said I had to post it.

I can hear my liberal friends reply to this vieo already ringing in my ears.... "I can't believe glen beck made fun of mentally handicap people and talked like a "retard" on tv. " as he will try to change the topic.

Didn't Mother Jones accurately conclude that no evidence exists that a good guy with a gun ever stopped a mass shooting?

Probably maybe because when you have a good guy with a gun fewer people die?

I always say you never seen it before because the good guy with a gun prevented the mass shooting from happening in the first place

That's the kind of info we need in an article that hits the main stream

Stopped in 80 Seconds: Armed Response, Not Gun Control, Halted School Rampage

Posted on December 20, 2013

Back in March, we reported on Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper (D) signing into law the most sweeping anti-gun legislation in the history of the Centennial State, despite overwhelming opposition to the legislation. The new law bans magazines with a capacity of greater than 15 rounds, imposes a "gun tax" for a background check when purchasing a firearm, and criminalizes the private transfer of a firearm, among other things. The anti-gunners claimed these measures would keep guns out of the hands of bad guys.

Last week's tragic shooting at Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Colorado, left one student in critical condition. The perpetrator, a senior at the school, was reported to have randomly shot 17-year-old Claire Davis as she sat innocently in the hallway. As bad as that was, things could have been much worse.

Information released this week indicates that the perpetrator was planning a much larger attack and was armed with a shotgun, about 125 rounds of ammunition, three Molotov cocktails and a machete.

According to a CNN story, Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said of the shooter, "His intent was evil, and his evil intent was to harm multiple individuals."

On his arm, the perpetrator had written in indelible ink five classroom numbers and a phrase in Latin that translates to "the die has been cast," according to the sheriff's office.

But as reported in the Washington Times, the attacker's mission was stopped short by the quick response of an armed deputy sheriff who was working as a resource officer at the school. Upon learning of the threat, the deputy ran from the cafeteria to the library, yelling for people to get down and identifying himself as a deputy sheriff. The horrific incident lasted only a total of 80 seconds and ended with the shooter turning his gun on himself in the library as the deputy was closing in on him.

"We know for a fact that the shooter knew that the deputy was in the immediate area and, while the deputy was containing the shooter, the shooter took his own life," Sheriff Robinson said. Robinson said the deputy's response was "a critical element to the shooter's decision" to kill himself.
