Open carry is legal and everything. How could this be happening there?

What do you expect to be done?

Seriously, if there was a solution to this things would be done.

Yes the shooting is terrible but no president is going to do anything about them nor should there be any expectation of such. Maybe you havent noticed, but presidents are pretty busy sending men with guns to the other side of the planet to commit their own mass shootings.
Additionally isolated shootings should have no effect on the rights of others to posses the tools they feel necessary for their own self defense.

Just as brilliant as "gun free zones." Because shooters would NEVER go there, no guns allowed....

Open carry is still optional, it's not like the gov. forces people to carry weapons. Just because a state respects the rights of it's people to defend themselves doesn't mean there's going to be a well armed person in every situation that ever happens.

When the details come out and we find out that every single person shot in that store was legally carrying a firearm and not a single person was able to defend themselves then get back to me.

Would to God these incidents were "isolated." They're more like commmonplace now.

So, you're only mad, because trump is our president? Sad, but what can we expect....
