    N.C. gunman shot after wounding 4 at law firm, Walmart

    N.C. gunman shot after wounding 4 at law firm, Walmart

    A man with a shotgun wounded one person outside a Greenville, N.C., law firm on Friday before crossing a busy street and shooting three more people in a Walmart parking lot, police and witnesses said.

    Greenville Police Chief Hassan Aden said officers shot and wounded the suspect just before noon at an entrance to the store. A witness told The Daily Reflector that the suspect, a white man in his 60s, was shot in the face.

    All were expected to survive, Aden said at a 3 p.m. news briefing.

    Yet again another shooter on a rampage in a pro-gun area, right outside of one of a place that sells guns and ammo and the police do their job and save the day and not the gun owners who claim their guns are for protection from violent criminals like this. yet another of many cases where gun ownership doesn't make anything safer because it is better to run away than to engage, unless you are the criminal shooter.

    Opening fire in a public parking lot is a dangerous thing to do, if you took a moment to think about it.
    But it shouldn't matter to the anti- gun crowd that perhaps those who were carring take the reckless endangerment of others seriously.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    Maybe it's just me but if I'm in the vicinity of someone shooting my first priority is going to be the safety of my family and myself which means that unless the guy is shooting at me or I have a clear shot AFTER everyone in my immediate area is safe then someone else is going to have to take him out.

    Kinda like how every shooting that isn't stopped has someone say "IF ONLY SOMEONE HAD A GUN"

    There are reasonable assumptions, and unreasonable ones. It is reasonable to assume that if armed citizens had been present a crime might have been stopped. And then there's Tererun...

    I wonder if this time it would be possible to wait until we actually have, you know, information about the shooter himself to discover if he, too, has a history of mental illness and shouldn't be in possession of a gun in the first place, or if he just has an irrational hatred of Walmart shoppers?

    Probably not. Carry on with regurgitating the same old, same old about "guns bad" poppycock that can be helpfully cut and pasted from hundreds of threads on this very forum as a handy time saver!

    Are the police not simply constantly armed persons?
