Is this a replay of another mall shooting in which Allah Fubar played a factor?

Religion of Peace? Or just standard homegrown rejected (by a woman or by a company or both) domestic 'Merican nutball trailer trash with a bad attitude on life and a hot piece? It will be interesting.

If they, the local press, delay at all any details on the description you can take it to the bank it was ROP or minority gangbanging.

That’s certainly the most likely scenario. It mentioned that they had surrounded a house where the shooter(s) may be holed up.

I’m tempted to venture into the sewer of the DUmmies to see if they are spinning it as “another deranged teabagger”. The groupthink of the left is soooo predictable.

Anyhow, prayers up for the victims and families.

Muskogee is a sleepy town near Tulsa. The Mayor was elected at age 19.

The last place you'd expect to hear about a mall shooting.

The sad truth of America? "Bangers" have made it into the very heartland of America, into nearly every village and hamlet. It is a national cancer. This does tend to reek of hispanic gang activity, some troublemakers starting something in a theater. Probably was a violent, absolutely useless Hollywood-rigged movie screening for the masses, and then somebody packing went crazy, or maybe somebody looked a little too long at somebody else's gutter trash girlfriend a little tooooo long and insults were exchanged escalating into THIS lawlessness.

Probably Crips and Bloods if you ask me. There are all over Oklahoma, up into Ft. Smith, Ark, everywhere in our Blessed Republic. What a scourage. Nobody has the b*ls to clean up this domestic mess and yet we are ready to fly off to far-flung Karbala and Fallujah and an-Nasariyah and try to straighten THOSE places out. /sarc

I've had a license to conceal carry for years and years and continue to renew it every year.

But I never carry because I work on a military base where contractors aren't allowed to bring guns and I'm on call 24/7.

So if I'm out running errands and get called in to work I can't stop and drop my pistol off at home - I have to immediately go in to work.

I HATE this! I'm blessed with a job that I enjoy with good pay and decent benefits but I can't carry my pistol onto a military base.

In a reasonable society, there would be enough mockery of gangbangers in the popular culture that it would discourage kids from adopting that lifestyle. But our hypersensitivities toward race prevent that healthy shaming from occurring, so we are left with thousands upon thousands of kids dressed like rodeo clowns shooting each other without a second thought. One of the worst effects of political correctness is that it prevents entire groups of people from having their behavior moderated by mockery.

Since I picked up a nice pocket holster for my Taurus 709 Slim 9mm I'm never more than a second or two away from being able to put seven rounds of 115 grain Speer Gold Dot in the center of mass of any gang banger. I. Would. Not. Hesitate.

Probably Crips and Bloods if you ask me.

These days it isn't even Crips vs. Bloods anymore. It's one "crew" of thugs vs. another "crew" of thugs. The violence erupts over petty "dissing" and not much more. Violence for violence's sake, that's about all it is.

Ironic. Life follows Art follows Life.

Playing today in Muskogee, Oklahoma Arrowhead Mall 10 Theatre, site of mass shooting. MAN as a culture do we ever swim in our own vomit of our own making!

Feature: The Crazies (Movie Summary): Imagine living in a small town where everything is safe and happy... until suddenly it isn't. Imagine your friends and neighbors going quickly and horrifically insane. In a terrifying tale of the "American Dream" gone horribly wrong, four friends find themselves trapped in their hometown in "The Crazies," a reinvention of the George Romero classic directed by Breck Eisner from a screenplay by Ray Wright ("Pulse," "Case 39") and Scott Kosar ("The Amityville Horror," "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre"). David Dutton (Timothy Olyphant) is sheriff of Ogden Marsh, a picture-perfect American town with happy, law-abiding citizens. But one night, one of them comes to a school baseball game with a loaded shotgun, ready to kill. Another man burns down his own house…after locking his wife and young son in a closet inside. Within days, the town has transformed into a sickening asylum; people who days ago lived quiet, unremarkable lives have now become depraved, blood-thirsty killers, hiding in the Cast: Timothy Olyphant, Radha Mitchell, Danielle Panabaker, Joe Anderson Official Web Site: http://www.thecrazies-movie.com/ Rated R for bloody violence and language

“In a reasonable society, there would be enough mockery of gangbangers in the popular culture that it would discourage kids from adopting that lifestyle.”

Some nice middle class white kids want to dress like inner city gangsters. Want to listen to the same music, too.

Following bad fads seems to be the badge for young people to prove they are rebelling from their elders/parents.

In my area, the latest is tight black jeans, tatoos, piercings, black nail polish, for both so called sexes.

IOW this century’s interpretation of “punk.”

At least one person is dead and six others injured Saturday evening after a gun battle erupted at Muskogee's Arrowhead Mall.

Police received the shooting call at 4:11 p.m. Saturday afternoon. Local officers and Muskogee County Sheriff's deputies immediately responded to the mall, located in downtown Muskogee.

Officers tell 2News that the initial gunshots were fired near the mall's stage area. The gun battle then moved westward, ending near an art gallery.

The rampage claimed the life of an 18-year-old black male. Detectives are investigating what they believe was a targeted killing and an incident of gang-related violence.

They are looking for three suspects connected to the shooting and hope mall surveillance footage will help identify those responsible. A Muskogee EMS spokesperson tells 2News that six other people suffered gunshot wounds.

Two victims were transported with life-threatening injuries, including a 13-year-old girl life-flighted to St. Francis.

Three more victims were transported to a local hospital in serious condition and are expected to survive their injuries.

Police described two of the six injured as "innocent bystanders."

Stay with 2News HD and kjrh.com for new details as they become available.

“But I never carry because I work on a military base where contractors aren’t allowed to bring guns and I’m on call 24/7.”

Have you read the actual regulations? Every post can be different because it is up to the base commander to decide. At Yuma Proving Ground, the gun has to be in a locked container that is attached to the car.

Other places allow you to register the gun on post, and then you can have it in your car at work.

Sometimes you can work with JAG to make an unreasonable policy a little better, perhaps by pointing out that people would like to go hunting or target shooting after work and need to store their guns securely in their vehicle...

If you have a shooter for a Commander or post Sargent Major, it can happen...

Not being able to carry on a Military Base is just insane. The public most likely wasn't aware of this regulation until the Ft Hood incident.

I suppose you have to walk through metal detectors? My brother started carrying his into the shop he works at after it was sold to Muslim Pakistanis (sp). All this in fly-over country...what a wonderful world /s

In the same boat with ya mate. Not military, but kind of similar. No guns in cars while on duty. I’ve gone so far as to make arrangements with some friends who live just off the property to store my gun for retrieval if I ever anticipate doing more than going to and from home.
