    Two Wonded in Shooting
    Too bad. But the stupidest statement had to be right at the end by Ms. Marinin
    ... I guess before the 70's the world was just a love-fest utopia?!? :barf:

    Shooter was subject of restraining order.
    Shooter was not eligible for a carry permit.
    Shooter probably was prohibited to possess a firearm.
    Guns are prohibited in the courthouse.
    Etc.

    Was this one of the counties with the ultra-anti sheriffs?

    I.E. "signing Sub Recuso (under protest)" or "permit seekers are 'soft white guys'"?

    If so, look out (makes no difference the CCW status of the shooter, if they can use it, they will).

    Greyhound: Yes and no.

    Hennepin county is the home of Minneapolis and the Hennepin County Government Center is in the middle of downtown Mpls. I think that the sheriff started out trying to require appointments to turn in the permit application but has since stopped doing that. I'm sure someone else will confirm or straighten me out on that. It was the Washington County (Stillwater, which is east of St. Paul about 20-30 minutes drive) sheriff that signs "sub recuso"; and the Dakota County (St. Paul) sheriff that said "soft, white guys".

    Not to make light of a tragic situation, but there was a long-running joke on a Minneapolis radio station - WCCO - that was much like that. The exact phrase was a that a "...woman was shot in the fracas." People called in for weeks with updates on her 'condition', ie: "The woman was shot in the fracas, and the bullet is in her yet." and "Physicians believe they will be able to remove it from her eventually."

    The shooter was not the subject of a restraining order; she is a nut job who was seeking restraining orders against the cousin and the attorney she shot.

    She is well known to the court; she had filed many frivolous actions over the years. She just had never been violent before.

    The court building was posted "no guns," by county court order, but it is unclear whether such an order is legal.
