The gunman, who hasn’t been identified, killed 12 people, including a sheriff’s sergeant who responded to the gunfire. Police later found the shooter dead inside the bar, possibly from a self-inflicted wound.
“There was a day when the news media showed great restraint in publicizing horrible mass shootings like this, which helped to prevent copycat occurrences,” says Al Colombo, Senior Design Specialist with TpromoCom of Canton, Ohio. “Perhaps it’s time to tone down the rhetoric and stop glorifying all the blood and gore at our children’s expense so we can slow the emergence of nut cases.”
In the past, responsible media did not sensationalize these kinds of events in order to NOT attract nut cases. Now, today, it’s a political issue that the Left apparently is committed to sensationalize every chance they get. While we’d like to think that they do this for rating purposes, one has to wonder why they put ranking ahead of the lives of so many children.
“So many security experts on both sides of the isle are afraid to really say what’s going on in the news media. I’m not afraid to voice what everyone knows deep down inside their soul,” says Colombo. “The media is fueling the political fires surrounding the second amendment by sensationalizing these sad, murderous events. In every case it draws out the nut cases who want the entire world to remember their sick, sorry name.”
