    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).

    G-d, Make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who would seek to destroy me. And G-d if today is truly the day you call me home, then let me die in a pile of empty brass.

    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.

    "there is nothing you can do about it when stuff like that happens".

    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.

    Shooting story, not an armed self-defense story.
