The man went off the media’s script, but he was speaking for millions.
In the immediate aftermath of any catastrophe, initial witness accounts are almost always distorted. Perceptions skewed by panic end up being corrected when the smoke clears.
But the words of one witness present during Tuesday’s shooting at YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, California, were true at the moment he spoke them — and gun grabbers and the mainstream media had to be horrified.
From Conservative Tribune:
It was a desperate wish that he had the means to defend himself in his hands, at that moment.
It wasn’t what the plotline the media has been pushing since the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas in Parkland, Florida.
It wasn’t David Hogg and the other sudden celebrity “survivors” being used to unleash a wave of anti-gun hysteria. But it was exactly what most Americans can relate to.
“I didn’t have a gun on me, but wish I did.”
Tuesday’s shooting left three victims wounded and a woman identified as San Diego resident Nasim Najafi Aghdam dead of a self-inflicted gunshot, according to ABC News.
After an event like this, the media “narrative” is supposed to include weeping witnesses, preferably outraged that the United States is a free country where citizens are allowed to arm themselves.
Reporters are supposed to find victims railing about how it was all the fault of Republicans and the National Rifle Association that anyone had a gun besides the police, the military and the numerous security agencies under control of the federal government that maintain armies of their own.
