    Ugly- 30 rounds fired in shootout at gas station

    This is about 2 miles from where I work. I stop in occasionally for gas since it's open 24 hours. This club seems to be spawning it's own crime spree lately. Glad it was on my night off.

    "More than 30 shots were fired during a shootout at Hickory’s Quality Mart Shell gas station early Saturday morning. Hickory investigators say the violence erupted following a dispute at the La Rumba nightclub earlier in the evening."

    We used to have a few of these places in some nearby counties; the sheriff's have had quite a bit of success having them declared public nuisances and using that as a basis for getting their liquor licenses yanked

    Sadly, it seems like they usually only hit little kids across the street. Probably has something to do with their grip.

    Who said this GB can shoot; holding the gangsta way will not hit a target as well as standard aim. (Mythbusters)

    This just reinforces my perception of gangbangers shooting abilities.

    Funny, and I really hope that it is a joke and not a real product.
