Boy Stops Murder Plot With Gun; National Media Ignores Story


www.infowars.com

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

I am pro second amendment and it's stories like these that really put things in true perspective. What the MSM and liberal media would like to do is make you think that people are only commiting crimes with firearms and not saving lives with them.

It's stories like this that need to be put out there some more people are aware that good can be done with a weapon, just as well as evil. This is one of those types of stories, good trumping evil. There are more cases like these as well. Infowars goes in to detail about a couple others as well.


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.


There are others as well. Personally I think we need to hear more about these kinds of things, but the MSM won't put them out there...

Any other sources other than Infowars?

Obviously, the MSM is claimed to have ignored this but a police blotter would help or court records. Something unbiased and just the facts.

Edit: The link within your InfoWars links give this: www.khou.com...

How is that ignoring this news, it's a local story that was covered locally?

Another edit: I see added the source below, so why does national media have to cover this? The story itself is light on details, to say the least.

Simply really. The MSM covers when someone gets murdered by a firearm... Why shouldn't they cover a story about someone who defends themselves or their families with a firearm?

They won't because it's liberal media who push the gun control agenda...

Gun Grabbers are brain dead.

You wont see this on National news for sure- it would spoil their agenda.

I say if you dont want to own a weapon fine- but dont think for one second you have any say in how I protect myself or the people I love.

Exactly. It would show that people can do "good" with a firearm. Which is not what they want. They only want to show the "evil" people can do with a gun.

I will put stories like these out there on ATS because there are very few places you can hear the good anymore.

OK Im gonna try this without being rude or confrontational.

Im not telling anyone what to do, Im not saying anything is right or wrong, Im merely asking a question.

Why is this not being headline news a conspiracy? how many of the 80 odd gun deaths that occur everyday in the US make headline news?

It seems to me that the only time it is big news is when a celeb is involved or many people are shot.

I just dont see it as a conspiracy, the guys who own the media own the gun companies, if they didnt want guns in circulation they would simply stop making them.

That said its a shame the kid didnt get to the gun sooner, even the article states guns stopped neither the sexual assault of his family nor was it prevented them from being murdered.

The only way a gun is gonna help you is if you have it on you cocked and loaded at all times, Even the biggest gun lover amongst you all surely dont want that?

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 thread

Valid points.

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.

Thanks for the reply,

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 really am not trying to be confrontational Im just trying to understand the rationale.

It seems to me guns being everywhere and readily available may make YOU safer but to society as a whole it is extremely detrimental.

I don't think at first. Right now their main focus in on AR-15 style military grade firearms.

However it is my theory that they will heavily regulate handguns and then eventually outlaw them. Similar to what they are doing with ARs right now. (limit magazine size ect)

There are MANY instances every day where firearms protect people and save lives.

But the media is always silent.

And the gun-haters become MORE ignorant than they already are (if thats possible) thanks to the media who only reports their anti-gun garbage and not the MANY instances where firearms do good.

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.

So even civilians like yourself have more personal experience with bad gun stories than good? I am getting that right or did you mean it the other way around?

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.

Cheers

I really don't like how you and Alex Jones are using this tragic story for purely political reasons. It seems very cold-hearted on your part. This was still an extremely traumatic event in these people's lives. This event sounds so bad, I think if I was in their position I'd rather be dead. You guys seem completely un-sympathetic.

You might respond that the "liberal media" does it too, so it's okay for you too. But there's a difference. From what I've seen, when liberals use stories for agendas, they usually feel bad about the event that occurred. e.g. Many people cried about the Sandy hook event.

I sense absolutely no sympathy from your post!

No I mean what is presented on the MSM, that is the main issue I see with this. It's the squelch of information from them regarding stories like these. They present only the bad. For example when I watch my local news I see a lot of this kind of stuff, "Two were found dead in the streets of Minneapolis's "north side" last night by local police. They were killed by gunshot wounds. No suspects have been idenified." I think we need to hear more stories like in the original post or even better stories then that where no one was harmed because of a gun.

I don't try to argue with people on ATS, or on the internet in general. I also respect the way you asked your questions. Personally I think ATS community should be a little more mature when faces such issues. No need to get upset. But I can see it from the other side as well. People are passionate about their beliefs.

I think he meant "on the news". They dont show you good stories like this on the news-but they have no problem playing "criminal events" that happen weeks on end.

Criminals will always have weapons- Why should lawful citizens not be able to protect themselves from such?

Why is the left so hell bent on leaving people helpless?

Your wrong about me, I cannot speak for Alex Jones, but your 100% wrong when adding me into the mix. I do feel sympathy and feel bad about the situation. How couldn't you?

If I may, and rather than support this theory as a conspiracy, I believe a simple media rule applies: "Bad news sells." (As sad as this story is, it is in fact a feel-good story).


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
