    No way. That could not happen at a big box home improvement store like Lowe's. I only carry part time and only when I feel I may need it, and no one could possibly have a need for a gun while buying new guttering for the home! <sarcasm off>

    What will it take for people to understand there are no safe places. My wife and I always carry full time, everywhere we go. At home, at the grocery store, at the gas station, at the doctors office. It doesn't matter where you go, there can always be something happen out of the blue.

    Violence doesn't make appointments.

    These murder/suicide domestic things always angers me. What a coward to murder your significant other then kill yourself. What a loser. Too bad for the innocent person, but no loss for the coward.

    If only Lowe's had posted signs banning firearms on their property this could have been avoided.

    Somebody will sue them for not posting those signs. Yep, could have saved her life if only they had been responsible enough to post the signs!

    You dont really think this person would have not done this if Lowes posted a sign. Come on those signs are only for us responsible people carrying a gun criminals and the such dont pay attention to those signs thats why the are called criminals.

    no worries, they are being sarcastic. We all know those signs do nothing but protect the bad guys.

    That is very possible . I think that after this incident we might start to see "no gun" signs posted at Lowe's too.

    Don't know, from the article if she worked there, if they went in together, or what, poor reportage.

    But, in the case of a domestic dispute murder/homicide, the chances of being able to stop it are pretty slim, even in public.

    He pulls out the gun, shoots his SO. Turns it on himself. It's all over. In order for anyone to intervene, they'd have to be there right at the second he drew, and shoot before he got off a shot... Unlikely.

    Not to throw ethnicity in here, really, but many times in conversations between those speaking oriental languages, I find it difficult to ascertain whether they are having a conversation or an argument...

    So for the sake of this discussion as I see it, I see two Asians (?) speaking to one another animatedly (as usual, from my perspective) the man reaches into his pocket or beltline, for a phone? a utility knife, a what? A gun! And, he's shot her before I KNOW what is in his hand... By the time I draw, he may have the gun pointed at himself...
    It could be worse.

    It says something about grief counselors coming to the store for her co-workers, so I assume she worked there.

    Sad story, but as stated above, not much can be done about the selfish ******** that commit these cowardly acts. Wish they would just start with themselves....
