So I follow the anti-gun Walmart Blog done by Jason Kilgore. This recent story has me scratching my head:
After the employee took five firearms out of the case at 12:22 p.m. Zwar grabbed the employee.
The clerk said Zwar held a knife to his throat and tried to cut him several times, documents state.
The clerk told authorities he was calmly able to get away and Zwar left the sporting goods area.
Zwar returned less than a minute later swinging a large yellow crow bar, documents state.
Zwar “smashed the glass out of the display case and removed one firearm,” documents state.
Walmart staff determined the firearm was a Bushmaster model M-16, .223-caliber semi-automatic rifle.
The whole article reads in the fashion that makes me wonder if Newspapers are hiring illiterates to write articles. Still what we know is a nut walked into a Walmart and asked to see some guns. When the employee got fives guns out of the case for him, the nut pulled a knife out and assaulted him. The employee “Calmly” got away and the dude left(??). He then came back and smashed the case with a crowbar (WTF??) and grabbed a gun (A Bushmaster “Model M-16”, I’m unaware of any such model name for semi-auto civilian guns. Seems most of the Bushmaster models are named “XM-15”, I suspect the reporter spaced out and made that part up) and was apprehended soon afterwards.
I’m glad nobody was hurt, and I’m REALLY glad this nut is off the streets, and I hope he stays that way with the fact that he’s being charged locally AND Federally for this little stunt. I hope once he serves his Federal nut for the gun charges he is transferred to the Montana prison system to pay off the armed robbery, assault, and attempted murder charges. This is NOT somebody you want around without a chaperone.
Still why did Jason bother with this article. Seems that simply because a gun was stolen this somehow supports his agenda that Walmart should stop selling guns and ammo. Because banning guns will somehow stop the lunatic with a knife and a crowbar.
Really the big issue is in every full-time gun store (90% of the time NOBODY is at the Walmart gun counter) there are several people behind the counter, and they are ALL visibly armed. Somebody pulls a knife on an associate in that fashion I suspect the attacker will suddenly have so many holes he’ll whistle as he falls!
