    for some strange reason I was unusally calm through this whole event. It didnt shake me or make me nervous hardly at all. Maybe constantly carrying has conditioned me to be calm knowing I've always got a gun if things get ugly. Or maybe it was because the guy was going the opposite direction as me.

    I'd move away and keep my hand's free. If you drop your camera to shoot somebody it could be used against you. Are you hiding evidence? BS but possible. I say get you and yours out of the way. Innocent kids in the line of fire count. But if they're next to mom or dad than that's their job to make their choices.

    Maybe one reason the Walmart workers didn't try anything is because its agaist company policy. Check the link on the four Walmart workers that were fired for disarming a man in a Walmart.

    You are not a COP, unless you or your loved ones are getting hurt do not get involved, get yourself out of harms way call 911 and be a good witness when the COPS come.

    People do strange stuff in WalMart all the time. Unless it involves threatening me personally, it's NOT MY PROBLEM.

    Why record a video? WalMart has more security cameras than anybody

    On meth? Maybe he was just plain nuts.

    I'm not a cop; I do my best to stay out of trouble, not get into it. Unless he was actually committing an assault on someone, I'm steering clear and using the 911 function.
