    Estranged Husband Holds Wife Hostage at Grocery Store

    This is less than 2 miles from my house. They display a "No Firearms" sign at the entrance. This is proof positive that a criminal doesn't give a rip about a sign.

    Store workers remained calm in standoff - Crime & Courts - SunHerald.com

    "Clayton Blanchard, the armed man who held a worker at gunpoint Thursday in a two-hour standoff, was the woman’s estranged husband. Blanchard shot himself minutes after releasing his wife and died after being taken into surgery."

    One weapon was an SKS-style assault rifle with two 40-round magazines. The rifle, with a folding stock and a bayonet, can fire a bullet a mile in a straight line, or can be used as a blade in close combat, police said.
    Wow, trajectory free bullets, how do they do that?

    I was not aware that a SKS could shoot a mile in a straight line?

    The 9mm looks to be a P38 with a shorten barrel?

    At any rate this was a troubling event and a unstable person life was ended by his own hand.

    I wish mine did that..... Especially when the barrel heats up and it starts to go in circles.

    That explains why they are making a big deal out of a little ammo missing at Ft. Bragg

    It has to be that super secret straight shootin ammo.

    I just can't believe he was able to carry a gun past a "no guns allowed" sign! Why didn't the sign work??? Must have been defective ink.
