    The security gig I had was in a high-risk area. It was a small company, and the boss let me borrow a .30 carbine because I didn't have a gun of my own when I started.

    This story could have been written by one of the reporters at our local paper, the Times-Union. To them, "assault rifle" is one word with a space in the middle. They have never used "rifle" in a sentence by itself. And, of course, they never actually describe what kind of assault rifle is involved. I'm sure a single shot BB gun would be an assault rifle.

    No, security guards are not LEO's. You can possess a hg under 21, just not buy one or its ammunition.

    Two lives rounds on the ground? Sounds like someone needed some range time!! Glad for the security guard this jacko didn't know what he was doing!

    Yep. The guard got lucky, IMO. I'm glad things worked out for him, but I hope he'll keep a little bit higher SA in the future. He could have easily ended up dead if the BG had known how to operate his gun.

    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?

    Well, being that it happened in Texas, the third perp might have a good chance of taking his "last ride on the silver needle". Two counts of Felony Murder.
