Maryland school shooting is being ignored by the media because it doesn't fit their narrative

Another school shooting occurred yesterday --- another chance for the progressive left to further their gun control narrative, to further inflame the national dialogue, to continue a debate that ended in 1791. Only yesterday’s shooting at a high school in rural St. Mary’s County, Maryland doesn’t fit the narrative.

A 17-year-old started firing his pistol, wounding a young girl and a 14-year-old boy. Within a minute, the school’s resource officer, Deputy Blaine Gaskill, returned fire, and like that the gunfight was over.

It’s clear-cut: A good guy with a gun shot a bad guy with a gun. Yet, already, the mainstream media have downplayed the incident, saying things like, “Maybe the kid shot himself. We don’t know that the armed resource officer did any good --- we can’t say that for sure.”

This shooting is different, the left will say.

This shooting is different, the left will say. They’ll say, this time, the shooter used a handgun, which is strictly regulated in Maryland. And that those strict regulations likely forced him to use a handgun instead of an AR, therefore gun control is necessary.

In truth, a handgun is just as lethal in a close-quarters shooting. The shooter in the Virginia Tech Massacre, which stands as the deadliest school shooting in U.S. history, didn’t use AR’s. He used a .22-caliber Walther P22 and a Glock 19, two pistols.

Of course, the fact that an armed guard effectively stopped a school shooter, and possibly prevented further violence proves that the lethality of the gun is not the issue --- after all, the whole point of having a gun is that it’s lethal. The issue, rather, concerns the mental instability of the teenage boy who was holding it.

But that would challenge the David Hogg narrative that’s been doing the rounds for the past month. The media prefer to ignore what Deputy Blaine Gaskill did. But, remember, he wasn’t just armed, he was what the founders would call “well-regulated.”

Glenn Beck predicts average Americans will not be eating beef in the future, thanks to America's current monopoly on meat processing that is all but destroying the small farmer.

There's already talk of switching to lab-engineered or plant-based "meat" and severely limiting how much land is used for cattle grazing. One of the strongest voices in Congress pushing back against these plans is Congressman Thomas Massie (R-Ky.).

Rep. Massie joined Glenn on the radio program to explain how farmers are being demolished by big-market regulations, but also to share some ways Congress can fight back. He gives an update on his efforts to pass the PRIME Act and solve the looming meat crises, without getting the government too involved.

Retired U.S. Navy Chief Master-at Arms Sean Cahill is an eyewitness to the well-documented "Nimitz encounters" with unidentified aerial phenomena, or UPA — otherwise known as UFOs.

Cahill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail exactly what he — and others — witnessed and to explain why the nine-page report on UFOs recently released by Congress isn't as lacking in information as some are saying.

In 2004, Cahill was stationed on board the missile cruiser USS Princeton, which along with the nuclear aircraft carrier USS Nimitz, was part of a Navy carrier strike group conducting training exercises off the coast of Southern California. He told Glenn that Senior Chief Operations Specialist Kevin Day reported multiple "strange and worrisome" anomalous contacts on the Princeton's state-of-the-art radar system.

"[Day] had been picking up anomalous contacts on the AEGIS radar system that were coming in at sub-orbital altitudes, then going down to 80,000 feet," Cahill said. "And then, what was spectacular, was that they were immediately translating down to sea level. And then there were groups of them proceeding in a southerly direction, against the wind."

"This was so strange and worrisome to Kevin, that he began a series of diagnostics," he continued. "He and a radar tech named Voorhis, both rebooted the system numerous times. They double-checked everything, triple-checked. And finally, Kevin went to our captain and said, 'Sir, I'm pretty sure that we have real contacts. These are not ghosts in the system, based on the upgrade.'"

"It's highly unusual and frankly impossible for most of our vehicles that aren't ballistic weapons systems, because to de-orbit a craft requires a certain specific set of maneuvers to reenter the atmosphere," he added. "So, not only were these appearing beyond where the AEGIS radar system could pick them up, they were in space. They were then translating down to an altitude that even our best aircraft don't operate very well at."

Cahill went on to explain how air defensemen, sent to attempt an intercept of the UAP, observed an area of "roiling" water approximately the size of a 737 aircraft. "And around it, were these Tic Tac-shaped objects that were matte white in color, approximately 30 feet long, with no control surfaces. No means of compulsion. No markings, whatsoever. And they were darting around, instantaneously, like ping-pong balls" he said.

"What we encountered that week was unlike anything we had ever seen before," Cahill continued. "The night that the pilots returned with the gun camera footage, before we had seen it on board Princeton, I was out on the port side bridge wing with the port watch. Approximately 45 degrees up in the sky, at 2,000 feet off the port bow, I saw five to seven lights in a completely clear and cloudless sky. It was about 10 o'clock at night, and these five to seven lights all moved toward the center of their formation that they were in, and each instantaneously disappeared. They blinked out. But they didn't show any kind of movement or propulsion."

"This action completely matched what we were seeing on radar. And completely matched what the pilots returned with on the gun camera footage," he said. "The next morning, when myself and the other chief petty officers witnessed that video, we were astonished. We knew that immediately what we were looking at."

The Biden White House is working overtime on the great reset of energy. A major part of the president's agenda is focused on the leftist pipe dream of the U.S. reaching net zero emissions, economy-wide, by no later than 2050.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the fine print, dirty secrets, and very inconvenient truths about the Left's green agenda to "save the world." The Left's solutions of solar, wind, and electric vehicles are driven by climate change hysteria that will doom America to long-term failure and submission to our foreign enemies. But as Glenn reveals, not everything is as green as it's being sold to you.

Daytona Beach (Florida) Police Officer Jason Raynor was shot in the head on Wednesday, allegedly by a man who was later apprehended at a black nationalist paramilitary encampment. Raynor miraculously survived the attack but remains in critical condition at Halifax Health Medical Center.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck couldn't help wondering: Where's the media outrage for Officer Raynor? Where are the crowds chanting, "Say his name"? And how different would the media reports and reactions be right now if the attacker had been a white supremacist, apprehended at a white nationalist militia camp?

"Jason Raynor, he's fighting for his life after being shot in the head," Glenn began. "The suspected shooter is Othal Wallace. ... Wallace was apprehended at a black nationalist militia camp. Imagine what today's world would be like if that were a white nationalist militia camp."

Glenn pointed out that reports are focused on Wallace's crimes as an individual and not as a representative of an entire race — which is as it should be. But if the races were reversed, would a white criminal receive the same kind of coverage? Or would the crime become an example of the supposed rising threat of white supremacy in our nation?

Either way, Glenn said it's time we say Raynor's name — just like all the others who've been physically hurt amid our nation's growing racial divide.
