    Oh goodness Rock! I heard this earlier on the news, and I thought about you,
    wondering if it was near you. Didn't imagine it would be that close. :eek:

    I hope they carry the shooters out in body bags.
    All there are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I'm kind of in the middle between Tulsa, Okmulgee and Muskogee. When they reported it the first time I didn't hear them say Muskogee and I didn't pay much attention. The only thing that ever happens in Muskogee is weather!

    I'm sure you have friends then in the area being that close.
    I sure hope no one you know personally was involved with this.

    And as it will soon be known, the mall was yet another



    The announcement basically told people "to run for their lives".....one of these days I would LOVE to hear over the loudspeaker "we have a nut with a gun shooting people, will all those with concealed carry please find and kill this asshole?"

    If I was the family of one of the dead, I'd sue the ass of the mall management for making them defenseless targets.

    EVERY SINGLE MASS SHOOTING has been in a "gun free zone".

    Concealed carry is very common around here. I am genuinely surprised this happened!

    I will bet that there are signs telling people carry inside is not permitted.

    This is more evidence supporting open carry, not concealed. Let a large majority of Americans walk around strapped and these cowards wouldn't be so brazen.

    I live in a blue state, and other than at government facilities, there aren't a lot of those kinds of signs posted around. It wouldn't shock me if my fellow shoppers at the local malls were armed.
