The best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

The liberals will claim this isn’t true.

But recent events just proved that armed citizens are the best defense against madmen.

After an evening out at a nightclub, Jody Ray Thompson got in an argument with another man and went to his car to retrieve his firearm for the intent to commit mass murder.

Yet, why wasn’t this the lead news story when you woke up the next day? And why didn’t the liberal press declare it as the next chapter in the “national conversation” on guns?

The answer is simple.

The hero of the day – who had a permit to conceal carry – used his gun to stop the armed thug by firing a shot into his leg.

WIS TV in South Carolina reports:

“Deputies said 32-year-old Jody Ray Thompson pulled out a gun after getting  into an argument with another man and fired several rounds toward a crowd that had gathered out in front of the club.

“His rounds struck three victims, and almost struck a fourth victim, who in self-defense, pulled his own weapon and fired, striking Thompson in the leg,” Lt. Kevin Bobo said.

Bobo said the man who shot Thompson has a valid concealed weapons permit, cooperated with investigators, and won’t be facing any charges. 

“Thompson was still on the scene when deputies arrived, but the initial scene was chaotic,” Bobo said. “It wasn’t until victims and witnesses were interviewed, and video from the scene was reviewed that Thompson was identified as the suspect.” 

Following the Orlando terrorist attack, the liberal media and some establishment Republicans – such as the NRA – ripped Donald Trump apart for saying that if the club goers had been armed, they could have stopped the jihadist before he committed his murderous rampage.

Hillary Clinton called his response “reckless”.

Butt, the armed individual who prevented Jody Ray Thompson from committing mass murder validates Trump’s theory.

In fact, armed Americans have stopped mass killings on several occasions.

A recent example was in March of 2012 when Jesse Gates, who was armed with a shotgun, forced his way into Boiling Springs’ South Side Freewill Baptist Church – but was stopped by a church member who was carrying a firearm.

GoUpState.com reports:

Henry Guyton said he was in the pulpit, preaching about how Jesus spoke the word of God and healed the sick, when Gates kicked open the side door of the sanctuary and entered with the shotgun, pointing it at the pastor and congregation.

Church members, including Aaron Guyton, a concealed weapons permit holder, acted quickly.

Aaron Guyton held Gates at gunpoint, as church members Jesse Smith and Leland Powers held him on the floor and waited for deputies to arrive. The Rev. Guyton said he stepped onto a chair, climbed down a 3-foot bannister surrounding the pulpit and took the shotgun from Jesse Gates.”

If liberals had it their way, the congregation would have been nothing more than sitting ducks awaiting their execution at the hands of a murderous criminal.

So, Donald Trump is correct.

Had club goers in Orlando been allowed to carry firearms – which by Florida law, Pulse nightclub was decreed a gun free zone – the only media coverage would have been that of the conservative press, wondering why the so-called “mainstream” media had ignored yet another story where law abiding gun owners saved lives by preventing a tragedy.
