    Yes bones. I must say when I read the headlines, I thought of VA Tech and the DC sniper. That has got to still affect people down there.

    Ummm that is already in the history of the case. He shot down a police helicopter.
    Kinda qualifies as a fight I would think.

    Shot AT and shot DOWN are two entirely different things.

    the last time i remember anything like this happening in nc...was the kkk opening fire in greensboro and that was many many years ago...now one thing...nc is a conceal and carry state...we can carry concealed weapons...so you best assume in a room of 10 people....at least 5 are carrying...anything from little inch and half single shot pistol to stuff that will blow a hole in ya the size of a watermelon..
