You are living in a movie....
Yep...you missed it.

We have a friend who carries everywhere. He usually has one of his units shirts or hats on all the time lol! If I'm out anywhere and saw someone like him, he would be the one I would want to be behind or around because he's a pretty damn good shot and he can take care of first aid too.

It's not the first time a shooting has happened in Walmart.

Such a sad, yet revealing truth about them......congrats lefties.....
I am pretty sure that the left cares about all shooting deaths, especially those of children whose parents are not responsible with their firearms.

Even if there was an armed security guard at the entrance/exit of this WalMart, the shooter could have easily just blown him away with a single shot, before the guard even had a chance to draw his gun.
Walmart bans employees from carrying weapons on company property.

Americans are more likely to be gunned down and kill by domestic terrorist, than any foreign terrorist. Hate crimes and hate groups are on the rise in this country, and we have no one in leadership to address this issue.

And what makes these guys viewed differently from the public than say our own military who have no problems bombing and shooting down villages from far off places? Why do we give those guys a pass, even though with the high rate of soldiers coming back from war with PTSD, but not the civilians? And, have there been studies to show similarities in brain wave activities to civilians who go on shooting sprees, or who are serial killers, rapists, etc, and the military who have been trained to compartmentalize the way they view the world when they are on missions?

Shootings like this are a deadly symptom of a disease that has infected our social fabric. Until that disease is identified and treated these shootings are going to keep happening no matter how many rights we take away from American citizens.

I honestly believe a fair amount of liberals are giddy when they hear about mass shootings.

That’s interesting because every time a mass shooting happened in a gun free zone, you guys said “hey this wouldn’t happen in a state that was open/concealed carry - you need a good guy with a gun”.

Now that it has, the excuse is carry people aren’t looking for gunfights? That’s a hell of a cop out when you’ve been saying the opposite for all the other shootings.

Clearly a mass shooting in a concealed carry zone is no different than a gun free zone.
