You know, see, the stand your ground thing only works if everyone is armed. When we get yokels like this jerk standing his ground against unarmed people he's got a problem with, stand your ground sort of falls apart. And I got no problem with gun lovers standing their ground against each other, if they take each other out at the same time it's just the Darwin Awards at work there. My problem is when gun lover/crazies go off against innocents at elementary schools or go after cops. Nothing worse then some armed kook killing school-kids or cops. But as long as people here interpret an amendment to the constitution designed to allow State National Guards in the U.S. as meaning every nut-job gun lover here has a right to pack heat, stupid cr@p like this will keep happening in 'Murka :/

Lets see....if he shot six people so far he should only have one bullet left because if I'm not mistaken Governor homo passed a law banning magazines containing more than seven bullets. So after he uses that last bullet he will probably turn himself in.
