    The second news article (aka, "crackle of gunfire" story - a Pulitzer Prize nominee, to be sure) said the manager "...was in the store and retrieved a gun..."

    Yeah, I'm trying to figure what that means, too.

    when they removed the body, did they ask to see the receipt?
    Walmart is going to be putting out some dough and paying that man's family a huge celery.


    too soon?

    We'll have to wait until they talk with the gun......every time a gun fires, it makes a report.

    I've been accused of being in possession of an odd sense of humor, of seeing things differently.
    Maybe even being a bit weird. We all have problems and I figure at least mine are benign.
    This thread is proof I don't even hold a candle to a whole herd of rather odd personalities in here.
    The collective psychiatric bills here must be approaching the national debt.
    I am now going to go mow my lawn and try to return to a normal dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind.
    My lawn mower loves me. Cutting off the heads of little blades of grass gives us much pleasure.

    very observant of you
    ON my behalf however understand that I really pulled a lot of plaster ceilings down on my head without wearing a helmet, so I should get a pass I think?

    As long as it wasn't a ceiling at WalMart.
    Those two guys look way too happy?
    Who's the sourpuss in the middle?

    Maybe, maybe not. One report I read was that the deceased did not go to that Walmart to buy anything, but to specifically find and confront the guy (asst. manager) If true then he's not a customer. Also just because the confrontation may have started over a woman, something else could've happened that escalated it into a self defense situation, IDK yet.

    Being that it's Walmart, there hopefully is plenty of video to allow the investigators to get a better idea of what happened than mere eyewitness testimony.

    I’ve just reread both article links, in case updates posted, and see absolutely no mention as to what their disagreement over the woman was about?

    And, he is gonna have to prove “Stand your ground” before he can use that as a defense. And there does seem to be a disparity in size just from the photos - the manager looks like a D lineman; the “victim” looks like a weasel. So, in what way, exactly, did the “victim” seem to offer a life threat to the manager? Couldn’t the manager have just rubbed him up with a little rhubarb?

    Thus far, this story’s best byline seems to be that old phrase of adolescent youth:
    “A shot rang out,
    A scream was heard,
    And through the air,
    Came a flying turd!”

    Seriously, that’s what the story is for the time being!

    “Violent crime is feasible only when it’s victims are cowards. A victim who fights back makes the whole business impractical. - Col Jeff Cooper

    With over 200 million firearms in private possession, in addition to a collective ammo round count of over a trillion rounds, it should be obvious that we in the firearm community and culture are NOT the problem!

    Governments don’t create human rights; they either recognize them or suppress them
