We all know that the mainstream media sorts can’t stand the thought of good guys with guns, but to just lie about a hero good guy with a gun who stopped a bad guy with a gun is just nasty. That, though is what New York Times reporter Yamiche Alcindor did on MSNBC. According to her, Stephen Willeford did not actually stop Devin Kelley’s shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, when he ran out of his house in his bare feet carrying his AR-15, and actually did shoot the shooter.
“When I was watching President Trump today, and he was making his argument that [the shooter] was essentially stopped by someone with a gun, I kept thinking, ‘but he killed himself,’” Alicindor falsely stated. “The shooter was not stopped, there was not a big gun fight … and I think there needs to be a fact check on how this got stopped in the first place.”
“The narrative here as you saw with Mike Huckabee and the president is a little bit off the rails,” Todd responded.
In the end, according to law enforcement, Kelley did finish himself off. However, Willeford DID actually exchange fire him before Kelley led Willeford and another man Willeford flagged down on a high-speed chase. It was a case of a good guy with a gun stopping a bad guy with a gun even if Willeford did not deliver the ultimate kill shot.
“I know I hit him,” Willeford said. “He got into his vehicle, and he fired another couple rounds through his window.”…
Multiple law enforcement officials confirmed that Willeford saved lives with his heroic actions.
And that is what the mainstream media and gun detractors cannot stand about this story. This is a case of the second amendment ultimately saving lives. That fact goes against their preferred talking point, and that is a problem for those who want Americans to be defenseless in the face of tyranny.
