Shooters mom called police worried about her son buying an AK47 considering his age and maturity level.

Didn’t mention that pesky kill list he made in high school.

Police apparently said it was all legal.

Re: El Paso Walmart Shooting

Speaking of "whys", why didn't the cameras pick him up and someone sound an alarm before the killings started?

I am thinking if the cops showed up at an active shooter scene and you were standing there with a gun in your hand they would likely shoot you before you could say much.
I can envision a shootout between well intentioned CHL's. :eek6

First, you have to get to the authorities without getting shot by them. Remember, this may be their first time, too.
Sure, but hopefully you have the diligence to stand down at the first glimpse of law enforcement. If not, hopefully you or someone near you is able to relay your description to dispatch. If that still fails and you are alone and engaged in a firefight as law enforcement arrives, that’s a risk you’ll have to decide if you’re willing to take.
:totap: You reckon?

1. The first responders wouldn't know me from a bad guy. 

This is really scary and honestly it would probably determine my actions barring protecting my family or myself from the shooter.
:iagree: :iagree: :iagree: :iagree: :iagree:

This is the number one reason for caution and thinking as an LTC holder. I will do everything I can to save the innocent from violent psychopaths. But a good guy in Alabama was shot by LEO because they didn't know he was chasing the shooter.
That’s definitely not the only time, and definitely not the last time that will happen. It’s a risk that we take every time we carry. Notifying the authorities of your location, physical discription, and full cooperation upon arrival can mitigate much of this risk.

Correct on al counts. I'll look around the next time I go to WALMART.
I was in the big Walmart on 110 in Tyler today and saw NO TABC sign at the entrance.
Then either they are not posting the legally required signs, or you missed it. TABC website says that location has a blue gun sign. See screenshot below:

They should have the following sign posted in English and Spanish:

Hmmm, since it doesn't apply to me, I may have just ignored it, you reckon? :headscratch

Hypothetical test question: You're legally carrying, with your SO on a shopping outing, and you hear gunfire within the store, what do you THINK you would do?
What would I do? I dunno', a lot would depend on the location of the first responders, who I was with and where the shooter/s were.

1. The first responders wouldn't know me from a bad guy.
2. My first responsibility is to my family.
3. Where is/are the shooters located in relation to innocents?

I honestly don't know what I would do.

Your responses to this hypothetical question are appreciated. Goodnight, and good luck.

Is this Walmart in El Paso posted? I saw earlier where someone said the mall was but what about the Walmart?
I have never seen a Walmart post anything barring guns, however, to my knowledge ALL Walmarts in Texas sell beer and wine, and are therefore required by TABC to post blue signs. Said signs make it illegal to carry a rifle inside (or any other firearm that isn't carried under the authority of LTC). So, it was illegal for him to carry the gun he had into Walmart.
Not all Walmarts in Texas sell wine and beer nor do they allow consumption of such on the premises. I've been in Walmarts all over Texas and have never seen a TABC blue sign.

Other than shooting up the place and needlessly killing a bunch of innocent people; in his manifesto, he has pretty much called a spade a spade and called it as it is. Unfortunately, he forsook martyrdom and surrendered.
So, you agree with and support this ideology???
Nope. He called a spade a spade.

I tried to tweet a copy of this image about an hour ago, and I was instantly blocked from Twitter for 12 hours, for allegedly violating a rule.

That is odd. Twitter is crazy.
