On Sunday, December 17, 2012, two days after the Connecticut shooting, a man went to a restaurant in San Antonio to kill his ex-girlfriend. After he shot her, most of the people in the restaurant fled next door to a theater. The gunman followed them and entered the theater so he could shoot more people. He started shooting and people in the theater started running and screaming. Itís like the Aurora , Colo., theater story plus a restaurant!

Now arenít you wondering why this isnít a lead story in the national media along with the school shooting?

There was an off-duty county deputy at the theater. SHE pulled out her gun and shot the man four times before he had a chance to kill anyone. So since this story makes the point that the best thing to stop a bad person with a gun is a good person with a gun, the media is treating it like it never happened.

Only the local media covered it. The city is giving her a medal next week. Just thought youíd like to know.

Can I get an Amen?
