With all of the ink that’s been spilled in the last few months about Stand Your Ground, self-defense, Right to Carry, and legal gun owners across the United States, it’s hard to believe the national media simply missed an incredible armed citizen story from Utah.
Yet none of the three broadcast networks, none of the country’s biggest papers, none of the biggest syndicated columnists bothered to cover the mass stabbing that was thwarted by an armed citizen in Salt Lake City last month.
I doubt the networks were unaware of the story. After all, the network affiliates in Salt Lake City ran stories on the armed citizen, who ordered a knife-wielding maniac to the ground after the madman stabbed two people outside of a grocery store.
