    What does a thug look like? Is skin color a attribute?

    Thats how perfectly innocent people get shot. How about you wait until he attempts to do something illegal first?

    I wonder if the open carry guy could have shot the other guy in self-defense? From the video, looks like the guy took him down and subdued him pretty quickly so the gun owner likely had no opportunity to reach for his weapon. But if there was more of a struggle which likely would have been the case if the gun owner was 20 years younger.

    Only in the states would you throw a gun under your waist band to go into Walmart, it made me laugh when he said I have a ccw why are you attacking me? Because no one sees the permit just the gun. You don't want people freaking out don't bring it into public

    So, you wait until it's too late?

    What the guy did was dumb, but not that surprising. People with guns are inherently more dangerous than those without, this guy probably just got scared and reacted. My question is, if he had a CC permit, why could the other guy see the gun at all? That's pretty poor CC.

    If only the white guy had a gun too, then this wouldn't have happened.

    Wtf are you retarded? Wait until he does something illegal first? An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

    Yeah and innocent people get shot because overzealous bystanders get all antsy and jump the gun (no pun intended).

    How is calling the cops going to get a guy shot? What if the guy intends to kill someone? Are you that dense?
    Do you know how many times cops are called to gun calls and people DONT get shot?

    You are watching way too much news. Just because there are 3-4 cases of black people getting shot, doesnt make the 1,000's of ones not getting shot disappear

    It happened at least twice last year. Probably more but there were 2 high profile cases.

    I saw someone open carrying a pistol in a holster last night in a restaurant. No one panicked. No one jumped the guy from behind. Everybody just went about their business.

    Not all of us panic like an irrational school girl at the sight of a weapon.

    Read the bottom part of my post. 2 cases is nothing compared to the amount of gun calls.

    Open carrying in a holster is much less threatening than concealed carrying in a waistband

    I could say the same about you thinking that anyone with a gun is about to go on a mass murder spree. Do you know how many times people carry guns but DON'T kill someone but instead you're focused on the handful of times there is a mass murder.

    i think people would react differently if it was in a waistband.

    You going to call the cops on anyone carrying a bat at the park? Or driving a car to practically anywhere?

    It's best to be safe. We don't know that the car driver doesn't intend to drive into a crowd.

    From the sounds of things, the white man is actually wrong for once.
