What happens to a town when a man with a gun refuses to stop another man with a gun from killing people, just because it was against the law to bring the gun on school property?
Sheldon Knapp was caught in a photograph calling 9-11 with a gun in his hand, while a vicious gunman enters the school behind him. Initially regarded as a hero, the accolades turn into contempt, as people begin saying that he could have, and should have, done more.
Sheldon Knapp's defense: He is a law abiding citizen.
This story is not actually inspired by recent events. It has been rattling around in my head for a long time. I think it highlights some of the hypocrisy within and without the media whenever there is a mass shooting. Hopefully, the format of the story suggests who the real target of the story is (if there even is one).
