Yep - "Nice area of town" - guarantees nothing can happen! Right!
"He was just a quiet guy and one of those people you would least suspect,"
Sorry folks - if anything it can be the ''quiet guys'' who flip - we have seen it before numerous times.

At least round here I am carrying in and around Wally World - and all other stores. Plus too - this sad tale helps me feel less ''paranoid'' as I scan and walk in parking lot, as well as in store.

To quote my fave mantra - ''expect the unexpected''. :smile:

The LP in my handle stands for "Loss Prevention". I spent 9 years at places like Walmart catching shoplifters and trust me when I tell you, cameras never stop people from doing bad things.

On the way home from work today, on a radio talk show pwople were already calling in moaning about how easy it is to get a gun, expecially when you don't have a criminal record. Before it was all over, a pawn shop employee called in and was especially upset that those that have a concealed carry permit could even buy a gun without having to submit to a background check before taking the gun home. A CCW permit was being portrayed as a "loophole" in checking backgrounds of buyers, allowing a felon to instantly walk out with a gun even if his permit had been revoked but he had not physically turned it over to authorities. I called into the show to try and give the other side of the story but got bounced because of a change in the topic. I will email the host tonight.

I cringe when this stuff happens and people start reacting this way because I know by the time it is over the gun will twist and distort everything to suit their own purposes. I expect, at the very least, to see someone try to "pass a law" that permit holders must have the background check for each purchase. I just hope WalMart doesn't now put no firearms signs at their entrances....

Bumper that really chaps my bottom too.

The FBI has my prints on file and my photograph and I didn't even do anything. Of course they had it already because I was a licensed public school teacher.

I like to imagine the FBI has these file cabinets with labels on them somewhere. "Rapists" "Serial Killers" "Theives" "Child Molestors" "Embezzlers" "Arsonists" "Teachers" and "CCW Holders" :grumpy:

I love being grouped into the same people who are a pox on society. Nice to know what the public at large really thinks of me both on and off the job.

Brad - I hope it is what it sounds like - but be good to have full skinny on this as more info comes out.

Last Update: 08/25/2005 6:39:30 PM By: Todd Dukart One person has died after a shooting and stabbing inside an Albuquerque Wal-Mart. The Wal-Mart on San Mateo SE near Zuni was evacuated and locked down Thursday afternoon as police investigated. Witnesses said one man began to stab a woman, and another man came to her aid and shot the first man. Police had not confirmed that information by 6:30 Thursday evening. It?s not clear which person was killed. Stay tuned to Eyewitness News 4 for the latest information on this developing story.

I just read the GT thread and one poster claims the stabber was shot 5 times and killed and the stabee is alive in the hospital. Unfortunately the thread evolved quickly into a "Can I carry in Walmart?" discussion.

I'll check again later.

Tangle - well - sounds at least as tho things worked right ways around - I feared the opposite.

In principle then so far this appears a good ''armed citizen'' event.

Post the link if you think of it - tho if thread is veering as you suggest then maybe not such good reading!

Referring to our excellent discussions in our very own "Hotel situation." regarding intervention. Just think of the risks this guy accepted to save the life of an innocent stranger. He could have had the attacker turn on him, he could have hit an innocent bystander, he could have shot the victim in the process and who knows what else. His life as he knows it may be temporaily suspended via the liberal criticisms of liberals, law suits, attorney costs, etc.

It is also interesting that he shot the attacker 5 times.

I wonder what I/you would have done?
