Gettin' old, but still a hippie at heart...

At least four people were shot Sunday in a Walmart parking lot in central Texas, police said.

A suspect was arrested at the scene, they said. The shooting took place very early in the morning in Cedar Park, which is just north of Austin.

Early indications were that a group of people met in the parking lot to fight and that at least one person then opened fire, police said.

No Walmart employees or customers were wounded, police said.

The names of those involved in the shooting were not immediately released. An investigation is ongoing.

Of course, this one won't get much attention, because there weren't people killed, and there weren't ENOUGH people killed to get anyone's attention.

We're going down a bad path... I don't know how we get off it, and I think it will only keep getting worse.

Only if we let it, doll, only if we let it.

While I don't think the answer lies in more knee-jerk, useless and counterproductive legislating, I do think clearing the deck of these fucking nutcases selling lies, fear and hate would be a good start - run these petulant little temper tantrum throwing bitches off the public stage and get some more mature, sensible people in office, that'd be a start.
Of course, instead of mature and sensible, we'll have to settle for Democrats this time around...

But that's still a world better than the brand of batshit crazy the other guys are sellin.

This sounds a bit different, Niki. Doesn't seem like someone attacking completely innocent strangers, but bad blood between people with prior connections. Which doesn't make it less sad, but makes it a different thing than the theater or Sikh shooting.
