Know what would've prevented this? More Guns!

Correct you are

The right person with a gun sure as hell would have prevented it.

Oh the other story not mentioned

THe country singer Mindy McCreedy committed suicide yesterday. Another tragedy.
But here's what bothers me.
First she sounds like a law abiding citizen.
Second has has a history of psychological problems to INCLUDE substance abuse.
She was going to be committed by a judge to a center.
Why did she still OWN GUNS? Her kids were taken away but not her gun(s)???
Why do we NOT do these things when it appears someone is troubled?


Don't worry

He's probably one of those nice "Sovereign Citizens" who don't believe in US laws.

Another idiot criminal

HAHA...What an idiot. He stole an FN PS90 rifle that shoots 5.7 caliber ammo which has been nearly impossible to get for over 2 yrs.

People are having trouble selling those things for half price because no one wants a gun that you cant buy ammo for and that currently has the first 200 million rounds contracted to the US Govt over the next 5 yrs.

This moron fails at life.

This is just the

This is just the beginning.....


I sure hope he filled out the federal paper work before he left...IT'S THE LAW!


Why aren't they locked up? That is very irresponsible of the shop. Hope he shoots himself and not someone else.
