    Heston, Harvey Co. Excel Ind. shooting. 4 - 7 killed, 20 injured

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/...le-reportedly/

    T. Walton, the Harvey County sheriff, told Wichita TV station KAKE that “four to seven” people were dead, including the gunman, and from 20 to 30 people injured. “It was a black male with an AK-47 who was an employee, or used to be,” one woman told KAKE reporter Monica Castro just outside Excel.

    That no guns sign didn't do a thing to deter this tragedy. Just allowed that the fish in a barrel would be defenseless.

    He must of been illiterate for not reading the no gun sign. The system let him down. We need to devote trillions and gazillions more into public education so this sort of thing don't happen again.

    He sounds surprised the magical sign didn't ward off the bad guy.
