    Link: Another Mass Shooting, This Time At A Wal-mart - It took place in a Texas Wal-Mart parking lot--5 people have been shot. The suspect is in custody. Is shooting a trend?

    ? Another Mass Shooting?
    1 woman and her 2 children were injured from the shrapnel from 1 bullet that was fired by accident. The only crime was running away.

    Did you even read the article? No one was shot. "Debris" hit 4 people. A single shot was fired (supposedly accidentally).

    IAB in charge of not blowing things out of proportion

    the firearm was accidentally discharged and the `victims` were `grazed` by shrapnel. and, I am almost willing to believe the lady is just CLAIMING to have been struck, knowing the kind of clientele walmart caters

    Not a "trend" but once one "makes the news" others like it will also.

    If it bleeds it leads!

    Having read the article: something`s not quite right there! How that pistol could "go off" by accident is nearly impossible! However it turns out, it still looks like an accident as opposed to a "mass shooting" ...FFS!

    There weren`t 5 people "shot" they were hit by debris - there was only 1 shot fired.

    "Mass Shooting" is the next hip thing in journalism, now that "Zombies" has died down. Any time a gun goes off, it will now be considered a mass shooting.

    And the Chick Fil-A shooting still hasn`t been posted?? After this, I really have to wonder why. Every single shooting in America gets posted here, as well as every single part of the Chick Fil-A saga - yet that is the one shooting not posted here.

    He`s black, so I can understand his fear of the police.
    Also, I can think of a few possible scenarios where the gun even tho it has two safeties can fire. The holster he used might not have been made to holster that gun size, therefor putting pressure on the trigger from the side. Or it could have been a soft holster. The back safety on the grip could easily been pressed down at the same time due to clothing or him leaning or carrying something.
    It`s far from impossible. If I was carrying a gun, I`d make sure it actually had a safety switch in addition to a grip safety.

    "yes, it`s a trend to get your guns removed."

    What makes you say that? WHat makes any of the conspiracy theorists say that? I`m all for conspiracy theories, but I don`t get it. As far as I know Obama hasn`t said ONE thing or done ONE thing concerning gun control.

    @PinkRhoid: 1 shot fired, accidentally (from a concealed weapon) that injured 4 people.

    The man really IS one hell of a shot. Imagine how good he would be if he had actually aimed. Damn!

    a concealed carry pemit does not mean that a business has to allow the person to carry on a gun on THEIR PROPERTY. that is right, property rights outweigh the precious little 2nd amendment and if it turns out that wal-mart allows guns in their stores they are complete idiots...have they seen the people that shop there? this guy is one of them and he nearly killed himself with his stupidity.

    Kind of a bogus head line there, eh. "None of the injuries were serious and no one required hospitalization." Seriously. Are there no admins here to change this, or does it not matter? It was only three people injured by debris. And it was a supposed accidental shot fire.

    amie76-" if it turns out that wal-mart allows guns in their stores they are complete idiots."

    For Walmart to post signs stating `NO FIREARMS ALLOWED` would only accomplish two things:

    1) They would lose customers.
    2) The criminals would have one more `gun-free` killing zone.

    @Ajikan: He had to have "one in the chamber" for it to fire, eh? So I`m thinking STUPIDITY played a major role...

    it clearly says no one did.
    though there really needs to be a little more control over concealed carry permits.
