OK, front page photo, a big ol' boy in "overhauls," a ball cap and an assault rifle standing in front of about three million rounds of ammo. Somehow, it fits our image. There's a guy in an Oklahoma prison right now for shooting a robber in his store. Why is he in prison?
Shooting the guy in self defense was justified, reloading and emptying the gun in his body was apparently not acceptable.
None of us has an answer to this unspeakable horror, but a rush on buying assault rifles? Who are you people gonna shoot? I know I will get an uptick of ignorant emails spewing hate and bigotry from my fellow Okies - whoopie! By the way, I know how to spell overalls.
