    I couldn't find the info on the website for wards parkway center, but since they are owned at least in part by Toyota(anti gun) then I would assume that the mall was posted no weapons. Anybody local that knows for sure?

    If it wasn't so tragic that would be funny.

    From the Fox News article:


    Potential CCW here, guess we won't know for a while, but it sounds possible.

    Wouldn't that just mess it all up for the antis. I pray its what happened.

    If it was a CCW who shot the man and the mall was "No guns" posted, will the individual who shot the perp (thereby ending the mele) be charged with carrying concealed or worse?

    Seems that it's only in "NO GUNS" places that these shootings happen. College campus, malls, etc. If CCW's could carry anywhere, I bet these scenarios would unfold much differently.

    Just my $.02

    Most likely they will not be prosecuted if that is the case. The two folks that ended the shooting in VA that predated the VA Tech one went to get their weapons and entered a no guns campus and terminated the dirtbag that was shooting folks. The DA didn't touch them.

    Thus far I've read one article that has him carrying a sawed off shotgun and another that reports he was "srpaying bullets" from a rifle (as described by a witness in an aticle on msnbc.com).

    Sounds like it probably wasn't a pistol. Also, in the Cnn article, all the victims were at the mall, but on msnb, one of them was at a previous location.

    Journalism at its finest.

    Not in MO. Carrying in a posted location, unless it's off-limits due to other legislation (airport security zones, etc.), is NOT a crime in this state. They can ask you to leave, but they can't do squat to you unless you refuse to do so.

    The original CNN.com report included this:

    "Janet Coleman said she saw "a young man with a sawed-off shotgun" in the parking lot being chased by police.
    "I could just see a blunt-sized gun bigger than, like a regular .44," she said, adding that she gained her expertise in weapons from watching "a lot of crime TV."

    What an idiot.

    I live in a suburb of Kansas City, but haven't been to that mall in a while.

    Indeed. I have no doubt that a citizen stopping a massacre with a CCW has journalist brains screaming "does not compute!"

    I remember reading about the MS school shooting where the principal ran 1/2 mile to his car and back to retrieve his pistol and stopped the shooting. Something like 180 articles were written about that event, the number of them that mentioned the his involvement using a gun were in the single digits.

    Personally, I would not wish such a thing on anyone solely to advance a political agenda. Thats the way liberals think and not THR.

    So the cops basically chased the guy to the shopping center?

    I don't think we are going to get a lot of comments of slow/non-existent police response to this one.

    Also, is seems like the people who followed the “hide and hope he does not find me” plan had it work for them a lot better than it did for people who tried it in several other recent cases.

    Sad story for the victims but its no more newsworthy than the 100-150 Auto related deaths on our highways every day.

    The story is struggling to maintain a LINK on the front pages of the major news outlets....bury it and be done with it.....make the story go away.
