The Islamist mass shooting in Orlando has been discussed endlessly by the liberal media for weeks now, but you probably didn’t hear about another mass shooting that occurred this past weekend in South Carolina.
Why didn’t you hear about it? Well, because it was promptly stopped by a concealed carrier who used his gun to take out the bad guy before he could kill anybody.
According to the Spartanburg Herald-Journal, the incident happened in the early hours of Sunday morning in Lyman, South Carolina. Jody Ray Thompson, a 32-year-old Lyman resident, allegedly got into a verbal confrontation with another man outside the Playoffz nightclub at about 3:30.
Thompson quickly decided to escalate the verbal altercation, firing at random into the crowd and hitting three people. One of the men who was shot at, however, had a concealed carry license. He fired back at Thompson, wounding him in the leg and stopping his rampage.
Thompson has been charged with four counts of attempted murder; the man who returned his fire will not be charged, according to police, as he was acting in self-defense.
Of the three people who were hit, only one was seriously injured — Renada Shantrice Irby, 34, who had one of the bullets lodged in her pelvis.
