    2 ambulances and 4 or 5 police cars outside and on way to Wades....

    Let's hope no one was hurt and it's just a precaution.

    I can't seem to find anything in the news, but that sounds like a lot of vehicles for a precaution. I sure hope you're right, though.

    This seems to be an unfortunately common thing. This lady must be in some dire straits but I feel bad for the people in the shop that just sold it to her. Of course this is not their fault at all but still has to be tough to deal with. I hear a lot of stories like this where people go to a gun range just to off themselves. Horrible. I feel the same way about when people do murder-suicide. It sucks that anybody is to that point in life but if you are going to kill yourself and there's no turning back, do that crap at home.

    Just a thought - how many gun shooting places do not want you carrying in their stores, or ranges carrying hot - in parking lots etc. As a result a shooter has to de-gun and re-gun in the vehicle.

    I don't know what happened in this case.

    <Why there aren't any school shootings in Israel! Teacher with long gun slung over her shoulder!!!

    Which is why some ranges require to have your own gun before they will rent you one of theirs

    WHAT?
    It would make a short trip to that range if they told me I couldn't carry.

    Now e had a guy come in and buy a gun just for this reason,not telling us of course.The county cleared him and he came picked up the gun.
    Then they called back and the owner told the girl she was the one who OKed the transfer.
    But he was older and I have no idea how much pain he was in or his mental state. So I can't judge if he was hurtin' bad.
