    (Even the cops cant ascertain this sort of thing much of the time...are we now asking Walmart sales staff to do so?)

    He didn't purchase it, he picked it up off the shelf because Walmart sells them off the shelf. ALL stores that sell airsoft guns have them on their shelves. The only requirement to purchase one is to be 18, which they may or may not check when you actually purchase it - you know after you carry it through the store to the register.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    This man didnt appear to be acting in a rational manner.

    Why wouldnt he be interested in the instant gratification of taking it out of a box (if he could) and playing with it? Again, it's hard to assign him general rational behavior from what I observed.

    It wasn't an airsoft gun, it was a .177 caliber pellet rifle. It fires a metal projectile, and has a rifled barrel. An airsoft gun fires a plastic bb.

    Loading them is actually kind of a PIA and annoying if you are used to shooting other types of guns, lol.

    My bad, but the point remains he didn't have to purchase it because it was already on the shelf, although they are no longer doing that at that particular Walmart.

    A number of BB and pellet guns, including those that mimic the appearance of automatic rifles, remained on shelves Friday at Walmart stores in Moraine and Butler Twp., following a check by reporters

    Thank you. I got mine at Cabelas. I think there were display models out and boxes of them we took up to the register. I guess anyone could have opened the box and grabbed pellets and loaded up.

    Probably all stores should reassess how these are displayed now...altho really...knives and other dangerous items are out where they can easily be used to harm.

    Not to minimize the sales issue...but IMO the real problem is mental illness.

    They are on the shelf, but are usually packaged in a box. Someone had removed this particular gun from its packaging. When Crawford picked this gun up, he went straight to it without hesitation, picked it up, and walked away with it. He didn't check it out at all. It appears to me, he already knew it was sitting there out of the packaging.

    It's in the video shown at the hearing for the officers the other day.

    Nope, video had the entire approach and sound.
    I agree he looked impaired.

    Which video showed the approach and had the entire (how do we know if he was in audio range) extent of his verbal warnings of the cop that shot him? I didnt see that one.
