    Interesting Scenario Glad No one Got Hurt

    I was in my Walgreens tonight. I definitely would have drawn my firearm to protect my wife and I, I would have opted for the best cover possible. (No John Wayne here).

    I love that one witness said "there is nothing you can do about it when stuff like that happens". What?! I would have drawn and taken cover to protect my wife. If the guy came near me and started shooting i would put him down, but Im not going to run towards him especially if he isnt pointing the gun at anybody.

    Shows the ignorance of the common public.

    I love how the media sensationalizes everything. Why couldn't it just be reported that someone came in and shot up the ceiling?

    I am glad that no one was hurt and this guy wasn't on some kill em all trip.

    According to police, the suspect is in his 30s and may have been delusional.
