In moments of true emergency, what a person is made of is often revealed. In the case of several men at Californian grill mass shooting, they proved willing to lay down their lives to protect the frightened patrons. One woman exposed the unsung heroes of that horrific night.
When feminists say they don’t need men to protect them, they might want to consider what happened on Wednesday night at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California, where at least 11 people were murdered in a mass shooting, according to The Daily Wire.
Among the crowd, which was largely comprised of students celebrating “college country night,” Teylor Whittler was celebrating her friend Nellie Wong’s birthday. She said that when the shooter entered and started shooting, a group of men got on their knees and turned their back to the shooter, blocking others from being shot. She said they were “ready to take a bullet for any single one of us.”
CNN offered a possible motive but those close to the shooter said that it doesn’t make sense:
“I hope people call me insane… (laughing emojis).. wouldn’t that just be a big ball of irony? Yeah.. I’m insane, but the only thing you people do after these shootings is ‘hopes and prayers’.. or ‘keep you in my thoughts’… every time… and wonder why these keep happening…”
The post, if written by Ian David Long, displays a grasp of how his then-coming actions would affect the inevitable debate about gun control that would follow. Gun control advocates typically mock and brush off attempts at offering “thoughts” or “prayers” after a tragedy involving a weapon usually unless those condolences are followed by appeals for gun control.
And oddly enough, a close friend to the alleged shooter says that CNN’s report about what Long said “Doesn’t sound like him” at all.
