Spotting a gun out in public can be scary if you have never seen one on a person before. There are more guns out there in the world than many of us realize. If you live in Nevada and pay attention you will see them all the time. Plenty of times I have been in that very same Costco and watched someone lean over to grab something and caught a glimpse of their holster. We can't

Wow a sane Salon blogger
I just learned about this today.
the more I hear the more I think that who ever called 911 had a agenda
Honestly, in Vegas tons of folks working for the casinos are armed.
I must say, I hate shopping armed, but i do it all the time.
You have to always be aware when you bend over to get an item on the lower shelf that you dont reveal yourself.
Top shelf too.
LOL Is that the breaking news? A sane Salon blogger.
Dunno. Is this in breaking news LoL?
He blames it in the heat? Isn’t COSTCO air conditioned?
if the nerves were so frayed, why were there not injuries in the crowd?The shots were well placed.
The second volley of fire as Scott lay writhing on the floor
in his death throws bothers me greatly. It is DEEPLY disturbing.
Sounds like an anti-gun nut from DU would do something stupid like this and laugh about it. Those people are scary.
The story is very sad on so many levels, the writer of the article, seems to make half excuses for what happened;
First, Spotting a gun out in public can be scary if you have never seen one on a person before
Some hysterical twit probably was trained at a Government School to be afraid of guns unless a Government agent is in command shooting someone; just like in all the propaganda on TV.
Second, I don’t believe that the police nefariously set out to kill an innocent man.
No, they just ambushed him then gunned him down.
Third, based on what grounds? And no one really wants to face the facts to why, which means it will deliberately happen again.
your mileage may vary could be a good tag line.
That’s the first explanation I’ve heard that explains all of the elements leading up to the arrival of the police.
I reached for something on the top shelf and I could feel air, knew it was visible. Looked to my left and there stood a woman with her jaw dropped.
I gave her the biggest sh~t-eating grin and walked past. Never made that mistake again!
I carry everywhere. Somewhat out of habit, like having the cell phone. They day I don’t will be the day I need it.
If I was the family, I'd make SURE that the Costco weasel's name was ALL OVER the Internet...
So was Scott destroying merchandise, or was it someone else, or was it a bogus accusation?
Thats the idea. I dont cut the grass without it.
Criminals do this regularly to disarm potential victims.
He was checking water bottles to see if they fit in his backpack. Apparently at Costco it's an executable offense.
