I don't think that is selfish at all.

I do not know if this mall is posted? Spent ALOT of time there as a kid but it's been many years since I've needed to go back.

We just finished discussing it at the dinner table. Holliday shopping without ME present will not be happening again.

The predictable result of disarming the people.

If just one in 10 people carried.. someone would have been able ot return fire.

So the guys gun jammed?
Maybe he was trying one of those silly 100rd mags..

Signs or not you can bet I will be carrying! Screw their signs. I am remorseful for those who lost their lives and there is too much of this going on. Some CCW should have blown is freakin head off. That is one reason I carry almost everywhere I go if it is not against Federal Law. I have no where in my world for dirt bags like this and they will not for one second be tolerated. They will not need to burden the court system or the expense of the public for a trial if I am ever confronted. Once I had to play by the rules now I do not. My sympathy for the families of those who lost their love ones to this senseless act. God Bless them!

OK granted, I'm a gun guy blah blah blah but I don't see how this says anything else other than, never leave home without a ****ing firearm, the law be damned if you see someone running through a mall with a ski-mask and a rifle, it's your civic duty to shoot that *******.

Amen fellas, and I will also reflect on the fact that in my original post I was also thinking insensitively....placing the role of the AR before the sympathy for the people lost today....and those scarred by what they experienced.
