Concealed Carrier Prevents Mass Shooting At South Carolina Nightclub

Jody Ray Thompson

You won’t hear about this one in the mainstream media. It goes against the meta-narrative. 

While the left yammers on that gun rights are a relic of the past and should be tossed aside quicker than a 7 year old gas station hot dog, a concealed carrying gun owner just prevented a mass shooting at a South Carolina night club according to

The gun owner was outside a nightclub in Lyman, SC when 32 year-old Ray Thompson pulled out a gun while getting in an argument.

Ray Thompson whipped out his pistol and started shooting at the crowd.

“His rounds struck 3 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, who was on the scene shortly after the shooting.

The hero who shot Thompson, according to the lieutenant, has a valid concealed weapons permit. He cooperated with the investigators and won’t be facing any charges.

“Thompson was still on the scene when deputies arrived, but the initial scene was chaotic,” according the Lt. “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 four counts of attempted murder, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, and unlawful carrying of a weapon.

Thankfully, none of the victims’ injuries were life threatening.

Thompson is being held at the Spartanburg County Detention Center.
