"what you seem to want is for fathers to make their guns look like stuffed animals, make the barrel taste like candy, load them up, rack the slide then put them down next to their toddler and walk away. Then you can be oh so sad for the poor father who lost his child." -NES's own "Quiet"

The DQ was owned by a Lebanese man and his family. He was working there with his two sons. The linked article doesn't state who fired the shot, but it's safe to say it's not going to be like one of those Walgreens shootings, where the defender was fired for carrying his firearm against company policy.

The DQ is owned by the family, a franchise. I'm hoping they are legal with the gun and not caught under "alien" status.Master Electrician

"Why is patriotism thought to be blind loyalty to the government and the politicians who run it, rather than loyalty to the principles of liberty and support for the people? Real patriotism is a willingness to challenge the government when it’s wrong." - Ron Paul 2012

Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” (Jefferson's "Commonplace Book," 1774-1776, quoting from On Crimes and Punishment, by criminologist Cesare Beccaria, 1764)

Although I know that no one "wants" to take a life and deal with the possible psychological consequences, this is a prime example why the 2nd amendment exists. We all have the right to defend ourselves, our families, and innocent bystanders against these idiots.

Does this remind anyone of that scene from Indiana Jones?
