    The comments section. Why are there always the ubiquitous morons from the UK posting and telling us in the USA that we need stricter gun laws blah blah blah. It's the same thing on all of those news sites as if these are seminar posters trying their best to agitate and not look like the complete buffoons they truly are.

    LYMAN, SC (FOX Carolina) -
    Deputies with Spartanburg County said a man faces multiple attempted murder charges after opening fire outside a nightclub early Sunday morning.
    The shooting happened around 3:30 a.m. at Playoffz nightclub on Inman Road in Lyman.
    Deputies said 32-year-old Jody Ray Thompson pulled out a gun after getting into an argument with another man and fired several rounds toward a crowd that had gathered out in front of the club.
    "His rounds struck three victims, and almost struck a fourth victim, who in self-defense, pulled his own weapon and fired, striking Thompson in the leg," Lt. Kevin Bobo said.
    Bobo said the man who shot Thompson has a valid concealed weapons permit, cooperated with investigators, and won’t be facing any charges.
    "Thompson was still on the scene when deputies arrived, but the initial scene was chaotic," Bobo said. "It wasn’t until victims and witnesses were interviewed, and video from the scene was reviewed that Thompson was identified as the suspect."
    Thompson was charged with four counts of attempted murder, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, and unlawful carrying of a weapon.
    Bobo said none of the victims' injuries were life-threatening.
    Thompson is being held at the Spartanburg County Detention Center.

    HAH! How are you going to spin THAT Hillama? Oh right, you'll just pretend it never happened.

    NONE of the major national media is carrying this story. Not even Faux News.

    Yeah, you can bet this story will get buried in the news. No massacre, no scary AR15, and a concealed gun carrier stopped the bloodshed.

    I wish major news networks would report this, but that's highly unlikely.

    A bar shooting at 3:30 am is not really the best example of responsible concealed carry defense.
    Better to use the Mom who came home and shot an intruder to save her children from harm.

    Yet, they don't say a thing today, even though there was a mass shooting in Serbia. 5 dead several injured. The guy used a machine-gun.

    Anyway, here is the vid for the people who can't play it on the Fox site.
