A man with a concealed carry permit stopped a shooting at a nightclub in Spartanburg, SC over the weekend, and the national media totally ignored the story.
According to WISTV, the incident occurred just after 3:00 am, EST Sunday morning.
[dcquiz] Spartanburg County Sheriff’s deputies confirmed that 32-year-old Jody Ray Thompson (below) pulled out a gun and fired several shots into a crowd after getting into an argument at the “Playoffz” nightclub.
Thompson’s shots struck three people and nearly hit a fourth man, who immediately pulled out his own firearm and took down the attacker with a shot to the leg.
Lt. Kevin Bobo told WISTV that the man who took Thompson down had a concealed carry permit, cooperated with investigators and will not face charges.
Bobo further noted that Thompson suffered a non-lethal wound and is recovering at the Spartanburg County Detention Center.
Several Reddit users expressed frustration that the national media ignored a story that doesn’t fit the “anti-gun” narrative.
