    Just terrible. Let's not forget what kind of world we live in, and rest assured, this CAN happen here in the US.

    Stay armed and stay safe.

    Rest their souls.

    I could not help but think how differently the first few minutes might have been if there was armed resistance.

    Absolutely terrifying.

    Just casually walking by and shooting the wounded. We know what to expect from them.

    Horrific. This scenario is one that I personally fear the most. Just a casual Sunday at the mall with my wife and daughter and active shooters open up.

    I would park my family in a safer area and do whatever I can to take as many of these creeps down. Hopefully there would be a few other CCW's in the crowd that would pitch in.

    Horrific it was, the wife and I was at the mall the other week and I specific stay real close to her, watching all around to make sure that we where safe. This is happen a lot if not to the mall it's happen out on the street, I had my G19 with an extra 15 rounds mag. I really don't like shopping with my wife because they have to look at the same item for 30 minutes just so they can decide they don't want it, going around the cloth merry-go-round stand looking at this and look at that. Us guys we see something we want, we just grab it and leave but I wouldn't let her out of my sight most the of the time.

    Barbaric but if I were a lawful armed citizen "first responder" I would do the same as I passed by downed Tangos, it's called an "anchoring shot" and perfectly acceptable in combat. This is combat.

    One day I might die in a mall shooting, but not like that guy sucking on the tile floor and hoping for mercy from the terrorists.

    Shooting unarmed civilians is not "combat", it's murder...

    this is a great reason for a second gun to give to someone else. I would fight my way out as fast as possible. Who are the guys with the pistols?
