There were too many doors?

The problem is homosexuality.

or is it prayer in schools?

No wait, too many taxes... THE WAR ON CHRISTMAS!!

Um.... closing of coal mines?

Certainly not that there are too many guns and gun nuts in the country. Definitely not that....

Duh, it's Hillary's fault!

Were any of them playing rap music? Have they played them cyber games? If so, they're a bad guy. Eliminate the bad guys, and whoever is left is the good guy.

/Not intended to be legitimate advice.

Genuine question. How tiny does your dick have to be that you need to carry a rifle into a store.

Are we talking Brett Favre levels. Or pure inny

The man who took the rifle was shot multiple times. The victim of the robbery left the scene, but police believe another man returned moments later and also shot the man who took the rifle.

"You don't look so bad. Have another!"

Maybe #3! ? Sad this is us now.

Shoot the hostage.

Sounds like the place that this occurred is a nice place to avoid.

It was the hero cops who responded after all the gunfire ceased

that may be the most American thing ever..

Sadly.

Wellston, MO is lucky to have a police department. They're so impoverished they had to form a "police cooperative" along with three other cities. They have 60 cops to cover those four cities, and their police station is an old Pizza Hut.

Debatable.

From your article: 
"You've got close to 2,500 people who call Wellston home and let me tell you, 2,499 of those people are good people. I don't think it's fair to dedicate our resources to one location and take away from the 2,499 people who want good police service," Martin said.

It's actually unfortunate that there's no picture of Major Ron Martin, Asst. Chief of the North County Police Cooperative, because I'm forced to picture him as Chief Wiggum.

Oh.

So picturing him as Chief Wiggum was the nicer way to go.

That person did not use the weapon in a threatening manner, according to authorities.

So how was the rifle used?

If you're going around in public with a loaded gun, and you're not a cop on duty, you're by definition not a good guy.
 
2022-05-29 12:25:06 AM  
I have questions...

Why did the guy with the gun just give the gun to the guy who demanded said gun?

To pull things down from the top shelf.

Officers found the robbery suspect laying in front of the store with several gunshot wounds.

You're a farking writer. That's what you do for a living. You get paid for it. So FFS, learn English.

Serious question, is this what 39% of the nation wants? Or they don't care?
And why do the rest of interact with people who want this/don't care that this is a thing?

I take it you are not familiar with the purpose of "police departments" in the St. Louis metro area.

It's nothing to do with public safety. It's to make sure that all of the black residents have outstanding warrants because they owe money they can't pay for bullshiat traffic tickets, while nearly the entire city budget goes to fat six figure salaries for your buddies.
 
2022-05-29 12:29:58 AM  
The article doesn't say what happened to the stolen rifle. This is a pretty important detail.
 
2022-05-29 12:30:20 AM  
Missouri is, after all, the "Shoot Me" state.

Although Michael Brown stopped that gravy train for a little bit as those police departments started facing a lot more scrutiny about their practices.

And I was led to believe that will that many armed people, everyone would be polite!!!

It's as if that whole concept is bullshat....
 
2022-05-29 12:35:54 AM  
Who knew that walking around with a weapon visible would make you a target of criminals who can easily get the drop on you, since they know you are armed?

If that were really the case, St. Louis would be the most polite city in the US.

Doesn't apply to black people, NRA thinks all 3 should be shot.

The only good guy was the one that left it at home. There should be no allowable open carry. Ever. And go back to when concealed permits were hard to get.
 
2022-05-29 12:40:00 AM  
So whose turn is it to mangle the dead guy's name and do a stupid dance afterwards?

Here's the thing about open carry - nobody really thinks it is a good idea.  Sure you have your attention whores that do it in a Target on a Sunday morning but these open carry laws are just pandering to a base that doesn't even really like it.  If 80% of the population was openly carrying a gun to every public business and event, it would go away in less than a year.  It would be beyond tiresome to worry about who is a nutjob and who isn't when everyone has a long rifle strapped to their back at the Little League game, or movie theater or coffee shop.

But...aren't there nations that have open carry? Like Afghanistan?

This is all A misunderstanding.

The NRA told me it all makes more sense of you replace the word victim with the phrase 'gun grabber.'
