Why can't people just have the common courtesy to off themselves in the privacy of their own homes?:mad:

Wasn't a threat. He did it. At least he didn't take anyone with him.

As our own Quarterboregunner can attest, this may be bad but it can get a LOT worse :eek:.

This clown appears to have ONLY been suicidal, not homicidal.

Good thing it was just a bullet rather than a cartridge: someone could have been hurt.

If i was the shop owner i'd probably tell the guy to get on with it or get the hell out of my shop.
