    KHOU.com reports that a man fatally shot himself with an AR-15 near a security checkpoint. Reports indicate that a body was found in the lobby of Terminal B of the airport.

    The Houston Police Department told KHOU.com that an air marshal fired at the suspect, but missed. The man then pulled out a pistol and shot himself.
    Really?

    Since the NRA is holding its convention in Houston I wonder how the anti’s will spin this to blame it on the NRA.

    I'm sure that was an unintentional typo. These are professional journalist, just the facts biased-free reporting with no political agendas.

    They might not do much with this story. Not enough bloodly shirts to wave around.

    So an Armed Individual/LEO confronts a Gunman and stops the threat with no innocent people getting killed.Sounds about like what would happen to any armed threat anywhere if there were armed/trained GG's to confront them.

    I'm thinking the guy found out that Frontier Airlines is now charging $100 for every carry on bag

    Shooting spree ended by an armed individual before anyone got hurt?

    Came in with an AR, shot in the ceiling and when confronted by LE, pulled handgun and shot himself (maybe LEO hit, have to wait for autopsy) Too bad there is not a trained individual with a gun everywhere, then we MAY not have innocents killed.......

    I read the title of this thread and was looking for a pic of a man so ugly that he shot himself. There was some law about people too heavy to fly, was wondering if some were too ugly to fly???

    Swift, self-inflicted justice. If he had any, I wonder where the extra ammo went?
