In the city with some of the strictest gun laws in the country, One law-abiding citizen stepped in to stop a mass shooting. The reason the mainstream media has failed to report on it is because the man stopped the massacre from happening with a concealed weapon.
The city of Chicago, Illinois has continued to make national headlines for their high murder rate, gang warfare, and people being gunned down in the streets. It is reported in the mainstream media as a “gun” problem, despite the city having strict laws pertaining to firearms.
One story of 2nd amendment heroics that was quickly hushed by the mainstream media happened in April of this year. According to Breitbart, an Uber driver was sitting in his car, watching a crowd gather on Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago when 22 year old Everardo Custodio pulled out a gun. He started firing wildly into the crown.
That is when the unnamed Uber driver fought back. He pulled out his concealed weapon and shot Custodio 6 times. Thanks to his brave and quick response, the lawful gun owner prevented a mass killing.
That is just one of the many examples of lawful gun owners exercising their constitutionally protected rights to defend themselves and their fellow citizens from crazed lunatics looking to terrorize their communities.
It is also one of the many examples of censorship by the mainstream media to allow them to continue to vilify guns and lawful gun owners. For example, while the terrorist attacks in San Bernardino were still active, Obama and his democratic counterparts called for more restrictions on guns. The media happily ran with that narrative.
Don’t allow the government to take your constitutional rights away. The founding fathers fought hard for those rights and protected them in the constitution for a reason.
