The NRA's silence will be deafening.

As they should have done.

There is no such thing as a "good guy with a gun". It's a myth designed by the NRA to sell more guns.

Torie, think you could tell us why this thread was moved to Off-Topic? From where I'm sitting, it makes no sense to do so.

They're trained to basically shoot anyone with a gun in these situations so according to their training they didn't blow it.

Oh please. These sorts of incidents have always been in USGD. Same with mass shootings, bomb scares, or terrorist attacks.

If this story has been picked up in the non sensational national press that would be evidence that it is a national story. Yes, many threads are put up in GD that perhaps should not be there.

It was really nice of the Midlothian police to respond to this and go into dangerous, dangerous Robbins.  I know for a fact that the Midlothian police are professional and dedicated.  No bar in Robbins should be open at 4 AM, or even after 8 PM for that matter.  Looks like a tragic accident, prayers to the victim.

By popular demand, I am moving this thread back to GD. Apparently the story has attracted national interest. So I erred. To error is human, to forgive divine. Thank you.
