    According to friends who work in El Paso or who are from there apparently the shopping center where this happened has a very large customer base of people who live across the border.

    Sounds like this racist piece of shit drove nine hours because it would be a target-rich environment. :mad:

    awesome job Glen! :salute: Anyway side note - there's a Walmart in a mall? :huh: I've never heard of that. Shopping center sure, but not an actual mall.

    too bad his "target rich environment" wasn't his own home, and he could have saved himself a nine hour drive and saved El Paso a lot of tragedy! :brood:

    The town I lived in during the late '90s had a Walmart in a mall. One of those ginormous uber-Walmart's that pretty much had everything you could think of, too.

    Very rarely does anyone open carry in a Walmart (or any store) in my county. That said a pretty fair percentage of the shoppers conceal carry because it's very easy to get a concealed permit in Georgia, especially if you are military - and we have a shitload of military here.

    You can open carry in N.C. without a permit. Everybody in my county who chooses to do so hangs out at the WalMart for some reason.

    As @shootER can no doubt attest, no matter how hard the media tries to get something right, when you're dealing with a situation like this, they're going to make mistakes.

    This is a handy guide for these situations

    I get it now. The Walmart is next to a shopping center.



    I saw cell phone video of people being evacuated and there were escalators in the shot. I was confused and thinking that must be some fancy damned Walmart.

    Yeah. Seriously.

    Cartels are fucking evil but they aren't stupid. Hitting a Walmart?

    They know that would just give D.C. the green light to get all drone missile on their asses no matter what Mexico says.

    And it doesn't help when sources that should be trusted put out conflicting information.

    Apparently throughout the afternoon the El Paso mayor's office was saying there were X-number dead...while El Paso PD was saying it was Y-number.

    The FBI wouldn't confirm that the shooter had been arrested...but El Paso PD said they got him.

    Yeah, I doubt that they'd even bother doing a quiet hit on someone in the States, unless they were certain that it wouldn't bring the hammer down on them.

    I was just shocked she didn't drop her purchased goods in order to hold up her hands-I mean I am pretty sure I would just drop everything and run.

    When things are so normal that when you speak of the Walmart shooting you have to specify which one.


    (albeit to be fair, the two are not similar in any other way)

    In other words, the "good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun" trope is basically bullshit in situations like this.

    For sure it's bullshit if there isn't a good guy with a gun around. I'm just kind of shocked that the trope wasn't put to the test in a Texas WalMart of all places.

    Remember the Dallas shooting that happened when there was a pro-gun march going on? The cops had to use a robot with a bomb to take out the shooter after they cornered him. None of the guys carrying their guns in the march ever fired a shot.
