Some guy just taking pot shots at passersby? What is this, Texas? For God’s sake, the whole world seems to be armed and full of evil intent. Saints preserve us.

No, this isn’t Texas. In Texas, where many carry, people are afraid to shoot with bad intent, because someone may very well shoot back. “Gun free” zones are far more dangerous.
