Angry customer pulls gun at Texas shopping mall

http://www.chron.com/news/local_news/article/Angry-shopper-pulls-a-gun-at-South-Park-Mall-4060598.php

On Black Friday, the stakes are even higher, which might explain why a concealed handgun license-holder pulled his gun on a man who punched him in the face while the two were waiting in line inside the Sears at South Park Mall on Thursday night.

The men had entered the store, which opened at 8 p.m. for its Black Friday sale.

A man was pushing to get to the front of the line and started arguing with other people, trying to cut in front of them, said San Antonio Police Sgt. Rob Carey. Then he started calling people names, the sergeant said, and punched another customer in the face.

Roger Rivera, who was shopping in the Sears, said the man who was punched then pulled a gun and pointed it at the rabble-rouser, although Carey said the man actually pointed the gun at the ground. Everyone scattered, “tumbling over things, dropping boxes,” Rivera said. The man who was trying to cut in line ran and hid behind a refrigerator before he fled the store.

2. Love how they tried to make it sound

like a crazed concealed carrier went berserk, when in truth he was apparently defending himself.

6. I'm glad he was licensed to carry.

It's sounds like he's a careful gun owner.

7. He got punched in the face!

Who knew what he would do to anyone else in line, either. Yeah, he was an angry customer - people usually get angry when a stranger punches them in the face. He didn't shoot him, he just let him know he could protect himself.

9. at least he showed some restraint

The man was just punched in the face by some fool trying to cut in line, and the concealed gun owner defended himself as the law allows. If anything, bale the fool who punched him!

8. Perfect example of stopping an assault and battery

 

before it escalated any further, the CC permit holder didn't even have to point it at the perp. Classic case of DGU w/o anyone getting hurt.

10. Also described as "Man Pulls Gun on Rowdy, Line-Cutting Black Friday Shopper"

 

"...the man with the gun had a permit to carry the weapon and isn't being charged with a crime."

Good pull.

13. Another Good Reason to Boycott This Stupid

shopping day.

Never know when you'll get trampled, shot or scared to death by customers with guns.

15. Why do I (cynic that I am) smell a marketing opportunity

 

for the manufacturer of the refrigerator?

In need of a place to hide? Need a refuge far from the madding crowd? Nothing says safety and refuge better than Frigidaire.
