    My first reaction ...was pleasant.

    I thought, OK, who is the prankster posting this stuff?

    Then I remembered that times have changed, and returned to present day reality. Boy, my first reaction really was nice.

    A news story the other day (prior to this article) made it seem more like gang violence, with the shots coming from nearby cars (often with multiple young men who were passing the gun around). It's amazing that the story can change so much in a day.

    I realize that getting shot at is still getting shot at, but it would seem that a scenario like this would be easier to catch the idiots than a sniper. Either way, I hope they catch the person soon and prosecute him to the fullest extent of the law.

    One thing's for certain, concealed carry won't help much against a sniper at distance.
    Hope they catch 'em...
    Soonest.
    It could be worse.

    I dunno, with the right duster, one can easily conceal a long rifle...

    Hope they are caught soon.


    Having lived through the DC Sniper days it was a very tense time. People looking over their shoulder zig zagging into Home Depot, nobody stood still pumping gas, absolutely crazy couple of weeks.

    Well, I suppose that would definitely be a 25 yard plus SD scenario.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    Interesting story, but - not one about armed self defense.

    I thought I put it in "In the News, the good, bad, and the ugly"!?!?!?!

    Off topic works.
