Man Pulls Gun on Rowdy, Line-Cutting Black Friday Shopper
NBC5 ^ | 11/23.2012 | NBC

Black Friday got off to a rowdy start at a San Antonio mall where police say one shopper pulled a gun on another who punched him in the face while they were waiting in line at a Sears store.

Police Sgt. Rob Carey tells the San Antonio Express-News a man rushed into the store when it opened Thursday night to get to the front of a line, started arguing with people and tried cutting in front of them.

He had a weapon pulled on him for assault, not being rowdy or cutting in line.

The headline is more media bias.

Merry Christmas!

You're right and you're quick. The MSM bias, propaganda value and indoctrination value in the writing of this "news report" are the only reasons for publishing it.

Technically, I'm a low-speed, high-drag former military cook, but thank you. ;)

I am quick to anger when I see a lie told in public, which is what the headline is.

This behavior was going on in Bush's America, and Clinton's America, but seems to be getting worse by the year. Obama is the sort of President this country deserves.

Carey says the man with the gun had a permit to carry the weapon
and isn't being charged with a crime.

As it should be.

"Don't punch me in the face, Bro!"

From reading the story it sounds like pulling the gun calmed the rowdy crowd right down...and the face punching perp left the building!

Sounds like he pulled a gun because someone committed assault and battery on him not 'for cheap gifts.'

It took you five minutes and fifty seconds to open, read, deduce the purpose of the article, and post the concealed purpose.

You're quick.

‘An armed society is a polite society.’ Quote I have always attributed to Robert Heinlein.

That quote is in "Time Enough for Love" by Heinlein. I happen to have a very old, ragged, hardback copy of the dead tree version of that book.

I believe that and The Green Hills of Earth are the only two Heinlein books that I have read. Loved them both. It must be over 35 years since I read them.

I've read them all, even the bad ones when he got older.

I happened on them when I was young and impressionable. Glad mom never checked hardcover books that I happened to be reading. ;)

I just checked to see what all he had written and see that he was the author of Stranger In A Strange Land and Farnham’s Freehold which I have also read. FF much more recently. I don’t read novels much anymore but I might have to read the Heinlein books I missed. Maybe even re-read The Green Hills of Earth and Time Enough For Love. All I can recall of them now is that I liked them both very much.

"I'm just the cook." I loved that movie -- it was just good fun!
