Exactly right.

It isn't as if a teacher who carried ended this situation. Or a friendly visitor with his trusty CCW permitted side arm.

Few object to having trained and armed police assigned to school protection. Those arguing against it are mostly those saying it isn't enough, and there should be a lot more guns allowed than those-- the teachers must be armed up, also, they claim.

Here, it proved entirely adequate to handle the situation.

In fact, if media strongly pushed this particular story, I am confident some here would say that is only to falsely argue against their claimed necessity of arming teachers.


The point of modern propaganda isn't only to misinform or push an agenda. It is to exhaust your critical thinking, to annihilate truth.

More stupidity again from the leading state sponsor of psycho babble. Well, where are all the armed resource officers if that was remotely true. I don't see them in the schools. What's stopping the school districts from putting them in place right now?

Oh, that's right, they really don't want it. Just like Chicago really doesn't want to stop the gang crime. Liberal stupidity at it's finest.

The original question was not "why CNN his this story instead of playing it on prime time".

OP :

" Where is CNN? "

" Is this not newsworthy? "

" So, maybe the resident libs can explain the lack of news reporting on a school shooting ? "

I simply pointed out that CNN did cover the story. That they did not put it on the TV channel when RJ was watching is something you'd have to take up with them.

As far as the whole situation with children being killed, I believe that more effort into mental health care and some form of "immunization" to make people better able to cope with our information / disinformation age is about the best we can do. I certainly am not for "banning guns".

Oh ya, I am not that much of a liberal. I am quite fiscally conservative. Of course my Canadian community culture is often seen as being fairly liberal from a US viewpoint.

The original point still stands. CNN buried this story.

Suspect stole mom's rifle, and he was upset because a few kids were making fun of him and harassing him and he was recently kicked off the football team for smoking weed. poor baby, life is so tough for teenagers, huh?

Yet, guns in school worked. Lives, maybe dozen or more were saved. Is this not newsworthy?

Heck, I'm as hard as anyone on cops and the bad stuff they do. But, when they do great stuff, I'll be damned if I won't give them the credit for it.

So, maybe the resident libs can explain the lack of news reporting on a school shooting ?

I mean, has the hero from Dixon been interviewed? Why would CNN NOT want to interview the guy who stopped a mass shooting ? Seems just a little odd, but then again, CNN just like the resident liberal morons don't even attack such groups like ANTIFA, and defend MS13. You can't make shit up this stupid.

Is CNN losing viewers of their Fake News?

Yes.

I read of an very recent airport incident where the tv was off in the waiting area and someone said, Should I turn it on? and the replies were, Not if it's CNN, followed by laughter.

Another reason this story isn't so prominent, imho, is that people are somewhat insensitive to such shootings as those seem to be more frequent than usual, so the networks spew something else that pays better.

My first guess is that they were ordered to broadcast only what they are told to and never disOBEY their masters in govt.

That's word on the street. CNN was rated as the least trust worthy news program on TV. I don't think that is a trophy they will put up at CNN anywhere soon
