Active Shooter At Nightclub Stopped By Concealed Carrier

Why isn’t the media blasting this everywhere? Oh, because it doesn’t help them with taking our guns away… How many more people would have been shot if the guy with a concealed gun wasn’t there?

Fox News Insider:

A concealed carrier is being credited with preventing further violence at a South Carolina nightclub.

Spartanburg County deputies say 32-year-old Jody Ray Thompson got into an argument outside Playoffz nightclub in Lyman early Sunday morning. He then opened fire into the nearby crowd, wounding three people.

A man fired back at Thompson in self-defense, striking him in the leg.

Deputies say the hero had a valid concealed weapons permit and will not be facing charges. None of the injuries were said to be life-threatening.

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

The NRA chastised the media for not reporting on the incident.

Gun advocate Eden Rose wrote on Facebook, “It’s almost like.. having a concealed carrier on the spot can stop active shooters.”
