This whole deal reinforces my decision to conceal carry. You just never know when the next "nut" is in your presence and about to perform an act of craziness. Always be ready.

Yes but just because you are packing heat will not work in every situation!!! Common sense will get you some time & protection as well. It's better to turn around and go the other way. I can agree with your feelings about having a CCW with you. Especially when you're going into certain areas etc. I like your title to your thread FaceBook Killer!! This is one reason why I don't care to go on Facebook!!!

I dont go on Facebook either... for probably like 6 years now. Totally agree with you on what you wrote. I feel anyone carrying concealed needs to avoid confrontation at all costs. Unfortunately, turning to walk away would not have helped the victim of this man. You come walking up to me filmimg with a hand in your pocket, I may just have to draw on you immediately.

Man you never know what sick thoughts are going on in some of these demented people!!! Too bad this idiot couldn't have gone out into the country side to end his own life vs taking a innocent life!!! He had to be a attention freak to use FaceBook!!!

do you really think that a 74 year old, beat up black man is going to be concealed carrying? And would he suspect that another black man is going to gun him down for no reason?

Your point is well formed, but IMO not well applied in this case.

Im talking about myself. Not saying he should have been armed. He didnt have a chance being as old as he was. Running, fighting it off, whatever, he would have lost. I meant myself. Good try though ;)

My grandfather did a 1903 .32 Colt to be precise. Gun and knife, all his life. Kept it in his Pea Coat Pocket, and kept his hand on it virtually at all times. Guess I'm definitely his grandson. Although I carry a 9mm. I don't imagine Cleveland would be much different than the south side of Chicago.

I will say that it is common on the block to keep your hand in your pocket-gun or not-because plenty of stick up kids have gotten gunned downed by would be victims.

Infact, if you ever find yourself in a bad neighborhood, keep your hand in your pocket. And if anyone asks you what time it is-tell them you don't have a watch-it's a trick, they want to see your hands first.

It took me years to decide to CCW because of the grave responsibility of it. It was pretty much for the same reason. I now have my firearm on me or nearby 24/7.

Agree with the first part...being alert to your surroundings and having the wherewithal to defend yourself helps to level the field.

The part about Facebook ...not so much. Myself and millions of other people use Facebook on a daily basis...it's a great way to stay in touch with friends and family you don't see often. I post occaisonally to respond to someone but certainly don't broadcast my every thought or move on it. It's a great medium. Does it get abused? Sadly....yes, by idiots like the Cleveland coward that wanted justify his actions to a few because he felt he was wronged by a girl. If Facebook didn't exist I think he would have still done the same thing as he was calling his friends on the phone and telling them about it. No one really knows or will ever know what went on in this wacko's head. They'll study his childhood, his relationships and come to some sort of conclusion as to why he did it...but at this point it's all speculation.

A CCW is a tool of last resort and should be available to every law abiding, responsible American. Nothing is more important than situational awareness. Avoiding a confrontation is always the best solution.

You know with the statement Nut Job boy there are plenty of them out there my CCW gun is a Ruger LCRX, makes me think I need a small 9mm semi-auto for a rotation gun as well!! Better to have something as nothing!!!

When enough shootings have occurred and enough shootings have been stopped because of responsible citizens with carry licenses taking action, people will sit up and take notice. Hopefully this will result in a change in attitude towards citizen responsibilities...

I doubt it will make any difference though.

People using Facebook to stay in touch with family & friends is ok, although I don't use it at all myself. Then there's the people that use it to tell all their business, & as a forum for anything & everything. Then there are the ones that will say things to people on there they would never say in person.
I carry concealed for they same reason as everyone else, for protection. Anyone with good sense never wants to shoot anyone, but there are times when you don't have a choice if you want to live.
