The Aurora Shooting You Didn’t Hear About In The Media
While this past weekend’s shooting in Aurora, Colorado got a lot of national attention, a previous shooting, which took place in April and virtually no one heard about it. On April 22, 2012 convicted felon Kiarron Parker, just released from jail, entered the parking lot of an Aurora, Colorado church and shot and killed one of the members of the congregation before being killed himself by a member carrying concealed.

Parker had been convicted for assaulting two police officers, breaking and entering and drug abuse. The details of his criminal past can be found here and here.

As the left attempt to politicize the issue of the tragedy that took place this past weekend, we have yet to see this story in the headlines, and why not? I’ll tell you why. This story, though just as tragic, had somewhat of a positive outcome. There was a hero that stopped it and was carrying concealed. He saved lives by using his gun effectively to stop a crimnal that had just killed one woman and possibly was ready to kill others.

The Huffington Post reports,

Parker sped into the parking lot of New Destiny Center church in Aurora, crashed into a car, then fired at people who came to his aid. The shooting killed Josephine Echols, the mother of a pastor at the church, police said. Echols’ nephew Antonio Milow, an off-duty Denver police officer who was attending a church service, then shot and killed Parker, authorities said.

“Who knows what would’ve happened if the officer had not been there. It certainly could have been a lot worse,” Fania said.

Investigators do not know what upset Parker, but it didn’t appear that Parker and his friend were arguing, Fania said.
I know what many liberals would be claiming here and that is that this was an off-duty police officer and as such it was ok for him to have a weapon, but the average Joe should not be carrying a gun. In fact, they would point to police as those who are to protect us from such incidents. What would have happened had officer Milow not been attending the service? Would there have been police officers to protect anyone else and stop the senseless killing that Parker had started? Probably not.

Some will say, “Well that’s just one woman, not 12 dead and 59 injured.” This is true, but this one woman was a nurse and a mother of one of the pastors at the church. The issue is not how many lives. The question that should be asked here is “What stopped the man from killing or injuring more?” A man who carried his weapon, knew how to use it and didn’t hesitate in using it to stop further tragedy.

The point is that we don’t need further gun control laws. What we need is more people who obtain guns and train with them so that they can effectively use them, such as Officer Milow did, to protect themselves and take out the bad guy should they face a similar circumstance. Maybe one day we’ll get people in office that will eliminate the charade that is “gun control.” I’m not holding my breath though.

If you do a search of Kiarron Parker, it shows that there was plenty of media coverage. I saw articles from news stations across the United States that covered it.Tea Parties are for little girls with imaginary friends

It is not on the news now because it happened 3 months ago, just like the Colorado thing will not be on the news in a month from now.

None the less, it was in the news and you are just whining like normal.

Dont you find it strange they didnt bring it up,since it happend literally right down the street?

I can tell by the defense your giving,that you also see the interesting difference in coverage and lack of comparison to the current "popular" shooting.
