Limbaugh to media: ‘Make damn certain the world knows how gunman was stopped’
It’s another prime example of how a good guy with a gun can save dozens of innocent lives when under attack by a madman hellbent on mass murder.
A student gunman at Great Mills High School in Southern Maryland tore through the campus at 8 a.m. Tuesday, shooting and injuring at least two students.
“There was a loud sound and everyone started screaming and running,” tweeted student Mollie Davis.
But an armed school resource officer wasn’t about to stand down or wait for backup.
He was determined to save innocent young lives. So the officer wasted no time in pursuing the attacker, who was armed with a Glock handgun.
He fired a round at the gunman and quickly neutralized the threat.
Nobody was killed, except for the attacker.
Two injured students – a 14-year-old boy and 16-year-old girl – are receiving treatment at local hospitals. The boy is in stable condition at MedStar St. Mary Hospital. The girl is critical at the University of Maryland Prince George’s Hospital Center. The officer was not injured.
It’s a stark contrast to the Valentine’s Day shooting five weeks ago at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 people were killed. In that case, the school resource officer waited outside the school as the gunman massacred students inside.
During his Tuesday show, talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh declared: “If the media could do one thing right here … they would make damn certain the world knows how he was stopped. It wasn’t a gun-free zone. … It was nothing more than an armed security agent … and this worked.
“Thank God for the armed security. … What definitely needs to be publicized is how this was stopped.”
