''Reports suggest the centre, about 45 minutes outside Washington DC, was on "lockdown" because of an "active shooter situation". The centre is a popular weekend shopping destination.''

    What the heck is going on? Purdue, S.C. State, and now MD shopping mall. Three high-profile shootings in one week. Hey! You angry people! Hey! You mental cases! Enough already!

    The libtards on another forum I'm on are, of course, calling for gun control...

    Funny how the same folks never call for 'car control' when there is a drunk who takes out somebody on the highway. WHAT WE NEED IS LESS CARS!!!!

    MSN is reporting that the shooter had a shotgun and "a large quantity of ammunition."

    I'd bet this means "a box of 7 1/2 shot".
    When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.

    From what I've heard most of the state is a gun free zone, with permits near impossible to get.

    Romantic triangle, maybe? I notice a man and a woman, co-workers in the same store, seem to have been the target. Since the news media hasn't been running "facts" 24/7 it seems this one is going to turn into a non-story like a few others recently.

    I'm curious. If you take a gun into a "gun free" zone like say the theater in CO and you end up being heroic and shooting the bad guy dead before he does to much damage, say only 1 or 2 dead, are you in trouble? Probably huh?

    Of COURSE you would be. Just like the recent story where a CC'ing customer stopped a robbery at a Dollar General in this state, and is in trouble because it appears he's a "prohibited person" due to a previous sex offender conviction.

    Last I heard, they were not pressing any charges against him, he had a valid CCW and only a court date for the sex offense but that was a week ago, has it changed?
