    After seeing that, I'm wondering what happened to the guy in white who was first attacked.

    This does not look like it happened in the US. Anyone have information on where this occurred ?

    Edit: Looks like the consensus is that it happened in Turkey

    - Knowledge is power and there IS strength in numbers -

    "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."
    - Thomas Jefferson

    I don't care where it was from I am just glad the shop owner was armed and protected himself and staff.

    Makes one wonder how that would have went if they all were armed. Less than 20 seconds, and three guys got slashed and stabbed. Also shows why you never wanna hang out with your back to a door.

    Damn. That looks horrible. I can understand why the guy behind the counter shot the attacker at least 3 extra times after the initial shot. Also, I didn't know there was that much time between major cut/ stab and bleed time.

    I'm guessing the blade used wasn't as sharp as it could have been. Still insane. I wonder if he was was going for a robbery, and wanted to take out everyone in sight, or if he was just a madman going on a spree.

    Gogo, I am really at a loss as to why you seem to think it is your job to patrol the forum and call attention to threads that are off topic. There is a lot on here that is off topic at times, but you seem to be one of the few that is always criticizing it. As far as I know you are not an administrator, so why you do this is beyond me. If you don't like it, don't read it and just move on. Not everything on here is for everyone. If it gets too off topic the admins will take care of it.

    I, with humor, made a comment about a post.

    You, without humor, criticized me.

    Other than LEO bashing or open carry of long guns, where have I criticized off topic posts? I have participated in my fair share of off topic posts, I am sure I will continue to do so...
