Armed off-duty guard stops middle school shooter, media silent

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Glenn recounted a story in his own life where guns were banned from a local event he attended, the large ‘no guns’ sign making the site more of a target than a safe zone. Are schools and other events safer with ‘no gun zone’ signs or with armed citizens and guards? Just ask the students of an Atlanta middle school who are safe after an armed guard disarmed a shooter.

“I find this story absolutely amazing,” Glenn said.

Glenn read from The Marietta Daily Journal:

A student opened fire at his middle school Thursday afternoon, wounding a 14-year-old in the neck before an armed officer working at the school was able to get the gun away, police said.

Multiple shots were fired in the courtyard of Price Middle School just south of downtown around 1:50 p.m. and the one boy was hit, Atlanta Police Chief George Turner said. In the aftermath, a teacher received minor cuts, he said.

The wounded boy was taken “alert, conscious and breathing” to Grady Memorial Hospital, said police spokesman Carlos Campos. He was expected to be released Thursday night.

Police swarmed the school of about 400 students after reports of the shooting while a crowd of anxious parents gathered in the streets, awaiting word on their children. Students were kept at the locked-down school for more than two hours before being dismissed.

Investigators believe the shooting was not random and that something occurred between the two students that may have led to it.

“I think that the honest  question is why is this not on the front page of every paper today? Why is this not leading the news everywhere? Why is nobody talking about this one?” Glenn said.

Glenn reminded listeners that Wayne Lapierre was ridiculed for calling for armed guards in schools, and that this story shows the validity behind that idea.

With the Second Amendment under attack across the country, stories like this show why citizens of the United States have the right to bear arms. Taking away that right limits people’s ability to defend themselves.

    Up front I hope and ask for God to heal up the injured one fully and swiftly in the time to come and let honest justice be determined on the shooter.

    The leftist MSM is silent on the fact of an armed, off-duty guard stopping this mess from having been worse for one reason: Political expendency. The hero of the story has a firearm and used it, thus nothing can be said so he is shoved into the back pages.

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    Most of the leftist MSM are socialists, communists or good little party members who tote the line with their bosses. So why would anyone be shocked by them NOT covering the story and ensuring it never airs.

    I have a proposal for the gun control liberals…I will agree to an amendment to the 2nd Amendment if they agree to allow Conservative Christians to re-write the 1st Amendment; specifically the portion that prevents Congress from restricting the practice of religion.  The liberals claim guns have become more dangerous since the Founding Fathers wrote the Bill of Rights.  I can make the case that certain religions, such as Islam and Atheism, have become much more dangerous than when the Founders first constructed the 1st Amendment.  Therefore if gun needs to be controlled b/c of their lethality, then Islam and Atheism must also be limited in order to prevent any further damage to our nation.  (insert sarcasm where necessary).

    You want to know why the media not reporting it. It is because it does not help their argument of banning all guns and proves our point.

    Even though the Armed Guard had a weapon, it sounds like he never shot the Kid that was shooting at others.  So even though people have handguns it does not mean that they Have to Be Used Necessarily to Disarm Attackers…

    The commie press will never print anything that goes counter to their idealogy.  In their little minds, covering this story would be the same as “endorsing” guns. Whatever happended to simply reporting what happens…and letting the listener form their own opinions about it. That press is dead, dead, dead.  Just like the free thought in “higher” education is.

  • Anonymous

    But, Draxx, did the presence of that handgun enable the officer to “get the attention” of the shooter, and perhaps threaten him with retribution if he continued?

    A few moments thinking about it, suggests various scenarios, which are positive in favor of gun possession by the populace. Otherwise, in a “supposed” gun-free zone, only the criminal has a gun, and the difficulty of stopping him, and getting the gun away from him, increases dramatically, with more damage done to the unarmed group in the meantime.

    Gun-free zones, and an unarmed populace, just makes it all the easier for the criminal to use that illegal gun in the commission of his crime. No armed resistance, so he can operate with impunity.

    Oh, well, we shall soon see the overall outcome of the enslavement planned for us….

    Don’tcha just love the sweet picture it makes?  (Major sarcasm)

    It seems quite obvious why the MSM are hush about this incident. Even if that kid had killed a few bystanders, it would still be hushed. Why hasn’t anybody described the shooter, the victim and the armed guard in detail? Is it because the kids were all black, as presumed by the picture of the kids in the bus? No way, the media can’t report the case as one with blacks involved. I am NOT racist, but I can see why the media would be so hush about this.

    Why was this story buried? I believe it was on last night’s show the connection was pointed out that the “How” controlled the “Why” and “What.”  It should make sense, then, that those who are pushing the “How” already know the “Why” and “What.”  The “How” are tactics, weapons of war, nothing more.  Only by exposing the tactics of war do we expose and combat the “Why” and “What” behind the “How” and “Who.”

    Some religions are more dangerous now than when the fonders first constructed the first Amendment, I agree. Do you agree that guns are also more dangerous now than when the Second Amendment was inacted? Musket versus 30 plus rounds a minute assault weapons.

    The first war fought by the newly formed United States of America was against radical Muslim extremists.  I think we should help all those who say “Islam is a religion of peace”…and finish that war. 

    I probably “inserted sarcasm” in more places than you intended, Jednavira.  I think I know what you’re saying but remember that understanding sarcasm like possession of a sense of humor—both in decline.  So I don’t want to limit atheism.  God gave us free will, even the freedom to make bad choices.  Even the worst choice–to deny God in all ways.  But I definately want to severely limit the atheist influence over public policy.

    Seems to me that most of the worst of progressivism has advanced by giving far too much influence to some of the smallest non-mainstream segments (atheists, homosexuals, etc.)  Their personal choices are their own.  They will answer to God for them but it is God who gave them the right to make their own choices and I can respect that (within the “your freedom ends where your neighbor’s nose begins” proviso).  But I’m fed up with THEM forcing their decisions on me.  Allowing that to continue, indeed, not reversing much of that, is leading to our destruction.

Get everyone who doesn’t pay taxes and use them as forced labor, get all atheist and force them to become Christians ,kick all the muslims out of the U.S. and send our military out to wipe them all off the face of the earth.

    should we go back to how things were in the 1950s? women have to stay home raise the kids, make sure no blacks have any jobs but janitors? I think we all need to understand that the word “minority” is white America now.While we were only having 1 or 2 children, they were having 8-10 kids at a time.over 40 years no we are the minority not them. Press 1 for spanish ,2 for English..how often do you hear that? This is why the Republican party will never win the white house again unless we make a new law that says blacks, hispanics, homosexuals, non christians no longer have the right to vote.

    Do you understand that guns are inanimate objects and cannot be dangerous in and of themselves. I would argue that people are dangerous. A gun with a 30 round magazine in the hands of a righteous person is safer than a sharp pencil in the hands of a murderer.

     Yes, leave the constitution as is. If the anti-gun people don’t like guns then don’t own them! Oh, by the way, if their home is broken into then don’t complain. The second amendment was for this purpose (and others). They need to take R Lee Ermey’s commercials seriously: “They broke into the wrong house!” Nobody has the right to alter our constitution!

    Of course the MSM is silent – they don’t want to admit when they are wrong.

  • antithetical radical

    Gerry, don’t be ridiculous. Try to use common sense instead of engaging in hyperbole and making some ridiculous comparisons about hypothetical situations.

    The firearms covered under the second amendment are classified as small arms – meaning they fire a projectile with a limited capability of damage. A laser  that would destroy a building, (clearly you don’t know how lasers work, or how semi automatic rifles do for that matter), would fall into the class known as a destructive device, and would hardly be a small arm that could easily be used by one person. That would be like calling a cannon a small arm. 
    Please try not to be hysterical when you discuss serious subjects, and educate yourself about this subject. It helps if you are trying to stay within the bounds of the real world if you want to be taken seriously. 

    The second amendment does not specify any particular type of small arm, but it does allow for technological advancement by virtue of the fact it does not state you are entitled to own a musket. The founders and the men who wrote the Bill of Rights knew enough to be forward thinking enough not to restrict people in the future by getting into that trap. 

    Anyone who suggests their intent was for everyone to have a right to only the technology of their time is being needlessly ignorant. Is that what you want to do, Gerry? 

    Please read the Bill of Rights, and don’t forget it was written in plain english and meant for the common man to understand it, no matter what era that common person lives in.

    Especially Islam! As a devout Muslim if you follow the commands of Mohammed without question and naturally agree 100% with the Koran— then all people everywhere that are not TRUE believers should die (including other Muslims). As a non believer you will have three choices when Muslims take over this country: 1) you can
    convert to Islam,2) You can become a slave to Islam,3) or Die. Mohammed did not spread Islam by ” peace and love” ,but by conquering those that were not Muslims and killing all those or enslaving those that did not convert to Islam. Dearborn ,Michigan is a prime example of how the Muslims plan on taking over America and making it a Caliphate. Sharia has arrried in Michigan There are basicly two branches of Islam the Sunnis and the Shiites.Generally speaking, the population is aprox 90% Sunnis and 10 % Shiites.Depending on which country you are talking about it could be 60% Shites and 40% Sunnis.They are divided and hate each other concerning who they are. They disagree on where Islam originally stemmed from after Muhammad’s death—.whether it was the cousin and son in law of Mohammed—  Ai or a close friend of the prophet’s– Abu Bakr. They have no problem killing each other and therefore would not hesitate to kill non believers who aren’t even Muslim. Did you know we already have Muslims in Congress.? OH! and of course a Muslim president. Ask yourself–How many Muslims are in America—that we know about? One million. two million, three million, nine million? In any country in the world where they have settled once they reach a majority of the populaton they introduce Sharia and demand everyone adhere to their way of life.They use that country’s laws to demand their rights as citizens of that country and use the courts to justify their claims.
    The 12 million illegal Mexicans are bankrupting the country,but the Muslims want to do away with the constitution and replace it with Sharia Law and eventually get rid of all non belivers. If Obama get his way and does away with all of our borders— terrorists won’t have to sneak into this country to blow it up –they can walk right in and take over.

    I saw this story on CNN originally. But it looks like the ‘good guy with the gun’ did not actually use the gun in this case.  On the other hand Mr. Beck I’ve run across several of your followers who are listening to what you say and are now ready to overthrow the government forcibly because of it.  I would not be surprised if the little boy being held in Alabama or even the kids killed in Sandy hook are an indirect result of someone taking what they heard on your show the wrong way.  Maybe JednaVira has a point, we should start looking at the first amendment as well.

    Oh, Goober, you are suffering from a serious overdose of hateful, progressive propaganda.  Bless your heart—first throw out the koolaid.  I grew up in the 50′s.  A lot of things have changed.  Some things are better but some things are much worse.  Part of that is that we’ve lost much that was good.  The black children you worry about—they didn’t die in drive-by shootings. Millions of them weren’t ripped from their mothers’ wombs and thrown out like garbage either.  Oh, and BTW-their fathers not only used to actually marry their mothers and help raise their children (instead of being baby daddies or just sperm donors) but they also weren’t confined to janitorial work.  They worked in the same jobs others worked in, the same jobs my father worked and my grandfather and my mother, uncle, aunt…  They also owned businesses.  Yes, they were limited and lifting those limits for them, women and others is part of what’s gotten better.

    There have always been hate filled, narrow minded people (as you seem to be) who look for excuses to think the worst of others.  Sadly, there will always be those kind of people.  You might want to try to desert those ranks yourself though. 

    So, Goober, just for you, let me be precise.  According to 2010 census, black population is 12.3%.  In 2011, census estimates are 14.1%, or 43.2 million.  Compare to 34.5 million Irish, for instance, who get no special favors but are more of a minority.  Homosexual population estimates range from 3 to under 5%, as much as 10% if bisexual behavior is added.  Latest data on atheists is that just under 20% of US population identify as atheist (6% athiest/agnostic; the remaining “religiously unaffiliated). 

    Considering the above stats and the fact that our first amendment guarantees freedom of religion, I don’t care if you personally want to worship the tooth fairy.  Nor would I attempt to stop you putting up an altar or whatever to him/her in your yard.  And if you had enough other believers and wanted to put up a public display (appropriate for children to see in public)…knock yourselves out.  Not my religion, but your right.  So why then does even 20% of the population think they have the right to refuse public displays of the religion of 76% (as of 2008, latest number I found so far) of the population?  If 76% says, okay to Jewish displays, as well as other public and private displays, why can even 20% deny the 76%.  Thought you were all about “fairness”.  And my objection to the homosexual issues is the in-your-face aspect of it.  I don’t announce my sexual preferences in public.  It isn’t anyone’s business (unless we are contemplating intimacy) nor franlkly of interest I imagine.  It should have nothing to do with the workplace unless I’m applying for a job in the sex industry!  My preferences have always been “don’t ask, don’t tell”.  Why should homosexuals expect special treatment yet want “equality?

    New gun laws are not the answer when we don’t enforce the laws already on the books. If government takes away our rights to bear arms, there will
    be many more crimes occurring. It’s not the guns that are the problem; it’s the
    criminal holding the gun. When tragedies happen we get angry at the shooter,
    not the gun. If the government takes away our guns, who will protect us? With

    right away. When an intruder breaks in to a home, who will stop him? Nothing
    will, except a gun. It’s our protection. The problem is criminals and the
    government won’t stop them by taking away our rights. Instead the government is
    harming all of the citizens who keep guns for defense against criminals.
    Criminals don’t abide by the law. They get their guns off the streets and from
    other people so they will never come in contact with a background check. In
    2008 a Memphis newspaper published a gun owner database by zip codes. After the
    newspaper was distributed, burglaries increased in zip codes with fewer guns
    and decreased in places where criminals thought citizens were armed. According to The
    Department of Justice, 84% of felons used guns to commit their crimes. There is
    nothing that will stop a bad guy with a gun, except a good guy with one.This
    story at the middle school shows that owning a gun is simply just a form of
    defense for this country. The government doesn’t get that because they all have
    protection. What planet is our government living on?

    Have you ever worked with blacks on a blue collar job,grew up in a neighborood where they were the majority, showered in a high school gym class as a member of a team where blacks are the majority.–if you had then you would have heard them call each other– the “N ” word. They do it all the time between themselves and call each other a lot worse. They have no problem with blacks calling blacks Nigger. Oh! in case you didn’t now there are also” White” niggers. While the term Nigger may be degratory when a white person uses the term–.it is also used as a word to define a particular type of culture and class within the black community.There are blacks, Negroes, and niggers. Upscale middle class blacks do not want to associate with ,live near or work with niggers. Rich blacks–judges, doctors, etc have no contact or speak with or visit niggers. They do not send their children to schools with niggers. Why? because they don’t want any part of the lower class,welfare, food stamp, gangster mentality or lifestyle.
    Have you ever heard of the expressions: greezer, spic, wop, dago, mick, kraut, kike,slant eye, gook, and those are only a few. Perhaps people shouldn’t use those either.

    Tell her JednaVira!. You are 100% correct. But I do agree that any organizations that are dangerous to the freedoms and liberty of this country should have not firearms like: the ACLU,the NAACP, The Black Panthers, any and all Muslims organizations, all communist, socialist organizations,etc..  
     Beth—– Hate speech is a political term used by and created by liberals to protect homosexuals, atheists and the like from Americans who disagee with them  and  from speaking the Truth about them. It gives the government the right to arrest and imprison preachers, pastors, priests not only from reading scripture about homosexuality even in a church on Sunday,but speaking about those lifestyles or sins against God on any day. Hate speech is an excuse for the goverment to regulate how you speak,what you say and who you say it to. (in violation of the constitution) . They can use the racist card against you and arrest you for a hate crime or hate speech. Or whatever they determine is not in line with what they believe is appropriate speech. The government has already prosecuted Chaplins in the military for using the name of “Jesus” in their sermons because it was offensvie to someone.  I believe it may have been either an atheist or a muslim.”Hate speech”?

    The same thing happend in San Antonio, Texas, several months ago in a movie theater.  An off duty officer, a female deputy, stoped a gun man after he had wounded a movie patron.  After one shot was fired, the deputy released one shot that brought the bad guy down.

    The reason the mainstream media is silent is because they are part of the disinformation campaign and they are sticking to the agenda – total gun control.  It has been proven time and time again that the “gun free/crime spree zones” do not work and in actuality create large, announced pools of victims. But, reality is, the agenda trumps all and the ends justifies the means.  Historically, worldwide, it has been governments who have committed mass murder of millions, after first disarming the unsuspecting citizens.  Mao, Stalin, Hitler, Lenin and Pol Pot come readily to mind.  Think it can’t happen here?  Think again.

    I will not be a victim, therefore I own a gun. What does it take for parents to lock their guns up and to teach their children gun safety? Is it a status symbol to have your gun lying around so that your child can get to it and take it to school? My children had their own guns but they stayed locked up until it was time that we went to the range or hunting – they also did not have access to the key. You will never keep guns out of the hands of criminals, and if someone wanted to do harm they will find a way, hence, Timothy McVey.

    Beth, you missed the point. The fact the person who stopped the shooter WAS ARMED cause him to stop. You don’t always have to shoot the bad guy to get the job done, sometimes presenting the weapon and demonstrating the wherewithal to use it is enough. The shooter was not a hardened criminal, and didn’t want to take the chance of being shot. That armed citizen stopped the violence by being present with retaliatory capability. That’s much more persuasive against this kind of shooter than an unarmed person would be.

    The worst fanatics are the ones who want to denigrate and destroy another man or woman’s faith. Atheists and agnostics who are persecutors of people of faith are fearful cowards, and that is reality. Not all atheists and agnostics fit into the persecutor mold, many are fine with letting others believe what they want. No one has a problem with them. It’s the aggressive in your face ones that are a problem.

    Get out of the bubble. Try getting your news from more than one source .I happen to be a Republican, I just don’t follow a fanatic like they did in 1937 Germany. I don’t agree with a lot of what the Democrats policies are, but lets look at real facts. The reason we lost the Election in 2008 to Obama was because of the legacy George Bush left us. History will show it was under his watch that America was attacked on our homeland.George Bush was the reason we have Obama.The reason we  lost in 2008 was because there was not one Republican who had balls enough to run against him so we ended up with 8 lunatics trying to get the nomination and the only one who got it was Mitt Romney who could not beat Obama even with the shitty job he did the past 4 years. What does that say about who we are as a party? We wll never win another Presidential election  in this decade. Who are we going to go with? I can tell you the Dems will have Hillary ,who are we going to put against her?  Michelle Bachman,, Newt, Herman Cain, Sarah Palin? There is no one in our party who has any chance to beat her do you know why? because all she has to do is not sound crazy and the country will vote for her. Do we have anyone who can run that won’t sound crazy? I hope to god we find someone before 2016 but I doubt it

    Killary is not going to win the nomination. The truth about her is going to come out well before the Democrat convention.

    I get my news and information from multiple sources, and like you I am a registered Republican, Tea Party candidates are constitutionalists who are forced to run in the Republican party, and they are the future of the party. The old Rove era Republicans are on the way out and they are going to fight to the bitter end, but in the final analysis they are going to lose.

    I don’t have to guess who is running in 2016, my energy will be expended dealing with the here and now at this point, and I will worry about 2016 when the time comes. We have enough problems dealing with the current occupant of the people’s house. Why don’t we try to focus on that for now?
