A student opened fire in the hallway of Great Mills High School in Lexington Park, Maryland early Tuesday, striking two classmates. Other students and faculty immediately notified the armed resource officer on campus, who promptly responded and shot the crazed gunman during an exchange of fire.
The officer was unhurt, the perpetrator was killed. One of the two students originally fired upon is in stable condition, the other in critical condition. The school was put on lockdown and students were eventually evacuated from the school and taken to a nearby high school while parents and guardians were notified.
St. Mary’s County Sheriff Tim Cameron stated: “On this day we realized our worst nightmare. The notion of ‘it can’t happen here’ is no longer a notion. You train to respond to this and you hope that you never ever have to.”
The assailant’s motive, if any, is not known as of this writing. What is known is that the incident almost certainly would have been worse—likely much worse—without the presence of the armed officer.
Green Mills High School lies just 70 miles southeast of Washington, D.C., where many of the nation’s lawmakers—preposterously-- mock the idea of properly armed and trained individuals protecting students from just such incidents as this.
Sadder still, you may well not have heard of this incident. You see, the mainstream media are keeping it under wraps as it doesn’t comport with their preferred narrative. If the tragic mass school shootings are such big news for extended periods of time, as they should be, then surely the prevention of those incidents should be, as well.
The mainstream media has shown once again, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that it has no honesty or integrity left.
Sometimes no news is fake news, too.
