The following article, The Fake News Media is Covering Up One Big Story About the Virginia Beach Shooting, was first published on Big League Politics.
The media is not telling the full story about the Virginia Beach shooting.
The conventional narrative surrounding the Virginia Beach shooting was that a disgruntled worker, DeWayne Craddock, went into the Virginia Beach Municipal Center and killed 12 people before being gunned down by police.
Another part of the story the media has avoided is the one of Kate Nixon, a compliance manager working on the second floor of Operations Building 2 in the Virginia Beach Municipal Center.
Nixon was one of the 12 people killed by DeWayne Craddock.
According to an article from John Lott in The Washington Times, Nixon was considering bringing a handgun to work because she worried that Craddock and another worker posed a threat to workplace safety.
She discussed this with her husband, but ultimately opted not to bring a gun to work because the municipal government in Virginia Beach bans workers from carrying guns.
The media and its political allies have been quick to scream for gun control despite the fact that further gun control would not have prevented this shooting from occurring. Lott’s research show that 98 percent of shootings have taken place in gun-free zones The Virginia Beach shooting clearly fits this pattern.
Much to gun owners’ dismay, this glaring trend will be ignored, as Democratic presidential candidates will continue clamoring for more gun control. Even Donald Trump hinted at a potential crackdown on suppressors.
America needs to come to grips with the reality that gun-free zones have been an abject failure. No amount of gun control will change that.
