Do progressives have any moral compass?


The co-hosts of "The View" attacked the "good Samaritan" who stopped an active shooter at an Indiana mall and got basic facts about the story wrong while dismissing the man's heroic actions as "lucky." 

On Tuesday's show on ABC, Sunny Hostin falsely stated that 22-year-old gun owner Elisjsha Dicken "broke the law" by carrying his firearm at the Greenwood Park Mall, where he used it to stop an active shooter who killed three people and wounded two others with a rifle. 

City of Greenwood officials called Dicken a "hero" and emphasized that he was "lawfully carrying a firearm" when he stopped the shooter. 

But the ladies of "The View" criticized the argument that a good guy with a gun is the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun. 

"They say that a good guy with a gun can control a bad guy with a gun. Well, we saw in Uvalde that that’s not true,” Joy Behar said, referring to a recent report that nearly 400 law enforcement personnel were at Robb Elementary School during the mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas but had failed to stop the shooter. Whoopi Goldberg added that the same was true for the mass shooting at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York.
