It’s official. I hate Walmart. Apparently they won’t sell Rifle and shotgun ammo if your under 21. “New policy” However I can walk into the store with a loaded .40 and nobody says anything. What a joke.
I guess his theory didn't pan out.

My first thought when I read this was that it was one of those "open carry" supporters who post videos to youtube showing how far they can push it.

So a slightly trigger happy customer who is also open carry....hears a woman scream and people running sees this guy come around the corner of an aisle pulls his gun and kills him. I don't think the guy is going to be charged....

The firefighter apprehended him outside......

There is no threat implied though some people might infer one. Those people are wrong and have no more right to jump the person who said it than the vigilante fireman who pulled a gun on a guy who was doing nothing illegal.
There is no law against running back into a burning building to save a cat either....Smart thing to do? Not so much. A few days after a massacre in a Walmart by a guy with a rifle.....walking into a Walmart with tactical gear and a rifle in a state with open carry and concealed carry legal without a permit.....in other words anybody who wants to carry a weapon can.....that includes trigger happy Rambos and frightened house wives......This idiot was in essence walking back into a burning building....

The Springfield Police Department arrived on scene within three minutes of the call. Police stated that a young white male, appearing to be in his twenties, pulled up to the Walmart, where he donned body armor and military fatigues. Police say the man had tactical weapons.

Police then say the man walked into the Walmart: Neighborhood Market where he grabbed a cart and began pushing it around the store. Police say the man was recording himself walking through the store via a cell phone.

The store manager at the Neighborhood Market pulled a fire alarm, urging people to escape the store.

Police say the man then made his way out an emergency exit where a former firefighter held the man at gunpoint. At that moment Springfield Police arrived on scene and detained the man.

The Springfield Police Department could not confirm the nature of statements said by the man to those inside of the Walmart, but they do confirm that the man had loaded weapons, and over one hundred rounds of ammunition.
Remember back at the end of July this group, called for violence ? It was originally only for El Paso but it just seems to be to much of a coincidence that all of a sudden we've had these attacks.

Depending on the circumstances that would be murder and the guy would be charged. Shooting someone is always a risky behavior. Carriers should always stick to the purpose - SELF defense and not try to be heroes.
