    A/N: I hope this is the correct sub-forum for this story and to be sarcastic: "Didn't he know all guns are to be locked and secured in the baggage car?"

    Oh, gosh! Am I a "gunman" simply because I respect our Constitution's Second Amendment which affords me the right to keep and bear arms???
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    Wow.
    Wow that they were so stupid as to confront him like that,
    and wow that the police shot people other than the 'suspect',
    and wow that they didn't quash the report telling about their... um... errors.

    A passenger seated about five rows behind the suspect said there was little warning before the gunfire began. "I was looking down at my phone and all of the sudden I heard, 'Get off me; get off me,' and then 'pop, pop, pop, pop,'" Jonathan Beaubien told WFAA-TV of Dallas and Fort Worth. "I hit the ground and then ran off the train."
    Note the absence of "all the sudden I heard, 'POLICE!'". Hrm. Sounds like dude may have been afraid/aware of a robbery or police impersonators.
    It takes a village to raise an idiot.
