Here’s another pro-second amendment story that you will never see on the major news networks – a Texas boy who watched his sister and mother being raped during a home invasion by two men who later abandoned a plan to murder the three victims was able to grab a handgun and send the two individuals fleeing.
“The incident began about 4:30 a.m. when two men entered the home and held three residents hostage. During the home invasion, police accused one man, described only as white, of sexually assa
Last month, a 70-year-old girls basketball coach in Detroit was escorting two players back to their cars after practice when two men accosted the girls and attempted to rob them. The coach, who had a concealed carry permit, drew his weapon and fired at the two attackers who then fled the scene.

The conspiracy angle here isn't so much the story it self... The conspiracy is more of the idea of gun control and the stripping of our rights, in this case the Second Amendment. There is also a conspiracy of the, for lack of a better word, agenda of the MSM to try to squelch these kinds of stories. I think that is why infowars put it out there like that. Even headlined it "National Media Ignores Story". So the real conspiracies lie at the heart of the story not really the story it self if that makes sense.
However with my mind anything can be a conspiracy.

P.s may want to change your title to something more appropriate like "boy chases off rapists with gun" still as sensational and actually factual. I dont say that to be rude but if you leave it as is "gun grabbers" will be along to call you out on it and will ignore any genuine points you are trying to make by posting this threadedit on 10/3/2013 by IkNOwSTuff because: (no reason given)
But could the same not be said of the murders with guns? why arent they all reported?
Do you think as many lived are saved and crimes prevented by guns as people are killed and crimes commited with them?
I have to use the title of the article as the thread title. It's a rule of the board. The boy did chase the men off, both were arrested and charged.
Yes it could. There are always many different sides to each issue. However I hear more about people who commit crimes with guns then i do about people who stop crimes with guns. I'm not talking police either, more like civilian.
Im 2 posts into a gun thread without insulting anyone or being insulted so I think Ill quit while Im ahead LOL
Ill read your reply but leave it here.
Ive starred your posts not because we agree but because you answered my questions and responded to me civilly.
This is interesting on its own, but becomes more so when you when compare it with society’s appetite for bad news. It’s common knowledge that bad news sells, which is why our newspapers peddle it almost exclusively and, to some extent, we can understand why it appeals – our subconscious always needed to be more attuned to a cry of “Wolf!” than a regular call of “No wolves in sight”.
So, it seems that our nature is to seek out bad news, but then ignore the lessons that it should be teaching us; and to make this worse, when we find a story that allows us to believe that the risk is reduced, we accommodate and synthesize that almost immediately, building it into our new perception of reality
