    ABC is pretty mainstream and they covered it (a year ago when it happened, I mean).

    Or was it because it wasn't a horrific tragedy? I mean, does an ALMOST terrible highway accident that was avoided get weeks of national news coverage?

    As a new member here, I'm still going through older threads but I will say this is the line that surprised the most out of me for a mainstream media outlet:

    "Then, before the suspect could find another victim - a citizen with a gun stopped the madness."

    Sometimes, I guess, it's hard to put a negative spin on a story. :)

    Nice job. I wonder if he could have just blown him away as well. Not sure how that would play out legally.

    Then, before the suspect could find another victim - a citizen with a gun stopped the madness. "A guy pulled gun on him and told him to drop his weapon or he would shoot him. So, he dropped his weapon and the people from Smith's grabbed him."

    But look at that. Present gun and all is well. Even this loon speaks gunease.

    That's good to hear - even a crazy lunatic didn't want to bring a knife to a gun fight.
