    Nacho run got eventful, didn't it?

    I was thinking the same thing.
    How could ANYONE see something like that happening to someone, and do nothing but move their own party back from the scene, and dial 911 and just watch and report? It is often said on here, "I won't know until I am in that situation" - I would hope that if and when those people are in that situation, it would change their minds. That lady is someone's daughter. I don't know who I'd be 'madder' at, the person who did something like that to my daughter, or the ones who stood by and just watched it happen.

    Yeah, you might get hurt, yeah, you might have to go to court. Yeah, you might have to sleep through your dreams at night...

    Damn it Muzz you made me laugh in the middle of a serious thread, but you do have a point.

    That is a good point. We joke about the nacho run but you never know what can happen. Jang said it best " anytime, anywhere to anyone." Even your first trip out can be the one.

    you guys are right, never seen it on tv. I bet we would over and over if the attacker had a gun. Good job, Sir.

    But I thought all of us were gun nuts who just wanted to feel big and important and who were more likely to get into shootouts over parking spaces and fender benders than protect ourselves or much less some other innocent person!?! What was this guy thinking?
    Sarcasm *off*

    Good job he did, very good job indeed. He is a shining example of what all CCW'ers carry for. She is a lucky woman. She is alive because NM has CCW.

    When I lived in the city I shopped there often. It is a real mix of people (like all of NM). The video was all over the local news and people were very supportive of the senior that did the good deed. At that time wally world banned firearms. Most (not all) still have the sign in the window here.

    Who says 9mm can’t do the job…great shot.

    It is still the wild west here. Responsible people are armed for a reason here and it is better that way.

    It's always good to see the good things that come from citizens being armed.

    Last night was my first P.O.S.T class and afterwards I found myself in need of a few more school supplies. The only place open that late was Wal-Mart. After getting there I unlock my gun (not allowed to carry at school) and spend a minute getting it on, while my friend who is with me is waiting outside my car. When I get out she says "Just feel naked without it huh" in almost condescending tone. My reply

    "Go into a Wal-Mart without a gun, what are you crazy?"
    "You can't shake the devils hand and say you were only kidding"

    Well, especially considering the type of goblins who want to prey on you in the parking lot -- absolutely!

    Now, much after the event, does anyone know the situation of the shooter? did the LEOs let him off or jail him, etc? thanks, cannon

    One point I'd like to make that's a bit off topic: Hopefully, someday all these places of business won't skimp on the video equipment. I can't stand to see crappy surveillance footage. (I'm a video editor at a local CBS affiliate.) Come on! You're Wal-Mart! Pry open those pockets! Just my 2 cents!
