    Assault, armed criminal action and unlawful possession of a weapon charges were filed against 57-year-old Lester Davis of Wentzville following the shooting Tuesday at All Cuts Barber Shop in Wentzville.

    A patron made the comment that the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School made him want to kill the suspect. For unknown reasons, police say Davis took the comment as a threat and asked, “You want to murder me?”

    Davis then allegedly went to his car, retrieved a pistol and fired three times in the customer’s direction. No one was hurt."

    And of course now the shooter is a loon. Nice deflection. Just a guy who feels that he can answer everything with a gun instead of a mouth.

    All I have to say is look at my 1st signature. I think this is a vast oversimplifaction and far to "inclusive"

    the myth is perpetuated by the fact that there is no hole that a person can hide in that the media won't find them. the world is much much smaller than it use to be.

    This is the way they justify not seeing reality. Anyone who actually shoots someone is a loon or worse and only the people who carry are sane.

    Yep. It is why I grow a big garden. I consider it training for if and when I have to in order to survive.

    Not according to the gunnies. This person in thier view was a loon and the area is probably infested with them. We need guns in barbershops.

    I however tend to see it your way

I don't care how much training one gets on the shooting range; it doesn't prepare them for the emotional impact of that very moment when the shooting starts. If you do not believe me try going to ranges where they simulate that sort of thing where you have silhouettes of good guys and bad guys popping out in front of you; and to intensify that situation the instructor will give you a limited amount of time to get through the course. I think that you will find out just how many good guys you will hit in the end.
    I agree with this completely the current system has no way to detect these type people and won't until someone gets a clue as to human behavior in stress situations. Of course that will take time and so the NRA and gunnies will oppose it even if it will save lives./
