Wow, if you don't die in Columbus County from it being the unhealthiest county in the state, looks like the second likely thing is being shot.......

The sign should have protected Ms. Jordan

I do not understand how this shooting occured. There was a big sign barring the carrying of guns. Didn't the bad guy see the sigh? Why didn't the shooter put the gun back in his car, like any responsible criminal would? It was a gun free zone for Petes sake. Why can't the bad guys respect this simple fact?


Yes, since there was a sign all should have been well. I know, we can pass more laws since criminals always follow laws. That will keep us safe.
