It's impolite to shoot people don'tchaknow.

In know a gal who was a pharmacist in the Phoenix area (very nice paying job), working for Walmart. One day an old lady got very mad at her for refusing to refill her expired prescription. Said little old lady slapped her across the face. So she quit. She was that fed up with it all that she just hung it up. "Old lady junkies was the final straw."

I have stopped carrying lately. Even though I have never thought to pull a gun on anyone, I don't feel like carrying a gun everywhere anymore. It is a lot of personal responsibility, both morally and legally.

Drugstore Cowboy was light hearted and looked like a good time.  I should become a junkie drugstore robbing cowboy.  or was I supposed to join the Murder Junkies?  Either way I'm doing it wrong.  NO CONSTIPATION!

My FIL is in his 60s.  With his sparadic behavior and temper, we're all lucky he sold his gun years ago.  He recently let his DL too.  The world is safer for it.

Yeah if it was in Oklahoma I would suspect my father in law. He is pretty much a junkie POS.  Stole his daughter's heirloom watch to pawn for pill/cigarette money.  When she had JUST paid off the last time he pawned in two weeks earlier. Once while hopped up on fioricet he lifted my wife's (then fiancee's) mother's seizure alert dog off the ground and held a knife to her (the dog's) throat. Once pulled the same knife on me on my birthday when we showed up to get my fiancee's stuff out of his apartment at HIS request. While telling my fiancee that her mother's last conscious thought was that she had abandoned her.

And then there was the time he told her that her sexual assault was all her fault. Have I mentioned he is a POS?

It's always like that.  Like when a horrific crime occurs in a suburban pleasant valley type neighborhood.

"How can this happen here?  This is a safe neighborhood!  Children and families live here!"

Fark off.  It can happen anywhere.  Bad human behavior doesn't care about location.

Hell, this could have been a nice older guy, he probably was, but if you got a mean opioid gorilla sitting on your shoulders and a pistol in your belt, you might overreact and start shooting people because you're pissed off.

I think a lot of people start carrying with the best of intentions. I think there's also a fairly sizable group that

Black guy in Aurora shot five cops yesterday and he survived.

But the day before he was a responsible gun owner.

Obviously the pharmacy people must be at fault, and we're not getting the full story.
