    Take his license! I choose not to shop w/ idiots who think walking into Walmart gives right or purpose to not have his gun on lock. I hope the injured victim files suit for damages. The cpl holder is clearly not a responsible gun owner.


    I notice none of you “concerned citizens” had anything to say about the cop killings who were ambushed but waste no time spewing about a lawful gun owner and an “accident”.

    Long ago i decided that if i hear a scream for help, i will ignore it and keep walking. Now you know why-

    So the guy wasn’t actually shot. Some “fragment” struck his ankle. Bullets don’t just break apart so it was most likely a piece of the floor. He sustained “minor injuries”. Does that mean his ankle was scratched? Bruised? Obviously he didn’t go to the hospital or that would have been in the story. The guy with the gun definitely did something stupid and it definitely could have been much worse than it was. Nonetheless, I think this story is a little exaggerated saying the man was shot.
