  • Wait, is this one of those Sopranos headlines?
  • I never would have guessed Sears is still relevant
  • If there are no bodies, it didn't happen in Texas. I call BS.
  • I was at Sears this morning. I waited in line in the electronics department to get a Wii-U for my daughter.

    You know what ticks me off about you people? You are all criticizing the shoppers who do this, and yet not one of you lazy bums got your butts out of bed at 4:30 this morning to drive to the store to make sure somebody else gets a merry Christmas.

    If you don't get what you want for Christmas this year, who are you going to blame? Not your mom, I hope. Not the one who did the cooking and the cleaning and the decorating and the shopping and the wrapping so Christmas would be nice for YOU.

    Do you think I WANTED to get out of bed at 4:30 this morning after spending all day yesterday orchestrating Thanksgiving? How about a little less disrespect and an occasional "Thanks, mom, for doing that".
  • Shouldn't have cut in line Kenny....
  • Sounds like he was trying to find another sale for a slick deal on some new underwear.
  • So wait, I'm still not clear, was he out or in?

    Because if he was in, somebody should make it clear that he was in what he was in.
  • you are a puppet: Sounds like he was trying to find another sale for a slick deal on some new underwear.

    Roger Rivera, who was shopping in the Sears, said the man who was punched then pulled a gun and pointed it at the rabble-rouser, although Carey said the man actually pointed the gun at the ground. Everyone scattered, "tumbling over things, dropping boxes," Rivera said. The man who was trying to cut in line ran and hid behind a refrigerator before he fled the store.

  • So, someone with a C&C in Texas gets punched in the face and respond by pulling out a gun...

    This is news?

    Come see the soft-nose side of Sears!

    So what's your hollow point?
  • Could they spin the article any harder?

    How about 'Man stops violent assault by pulling out gun!'

    Cause, ummm, some jackass PUNCHED HIM IN THE FACE. Before that, the same jackass was pushing and otherwise being a jackass. That's not something people should be allowed to do. It's not just a d-bag thing to do; it's actually quite dangerous. Punching someone is a serious attack.

    I'm sure everyone on Fark is big and tough and can handle themselves. But so what? I'm old, fat, scrawny, and spend my life behind a desk.

    The guy that pulled the gun is a hero. Without any additional violence or damages, he managed to get a crazy, violent, dangerous jackass to stop punching him.

    The tough guy that wanted to shove people around? "The man who was trying to cut in line ran and hid behind a refrigerator before he fled the store".

    I bet you that guy thinks long and hard before punching someone again. I'll also bet you anything, he wouldn't have thrown the punch if he weren't convinced he could beat the guy's ass. Without the gun, he'd probably have been right.
  • As a concealed weapon holder I say this, you only brandish your weapon when your life is in danger, and when those conditions are met you shoot to kill. I don't see the justification, but if someone had pulled a deadly weapon, or made me fear for my life or the life of my loved ones, I'll grant him an express ticket to his own funeral.
  • FTA: "Later, after the evening scuffle, South Park Mall security guards arrived and told reporters to leave the scene."

  • She raised concerns about whether Sears had enough security, noting that she only saw men at the store wearing "Security" vests.

    Obviously some women wearing vests would have solved the problem.

    The one near my house had a great deal on major appliances a couple months back, so I went up and bought a new dishwasher. Also, our washing machine decided it wanted to turn into a hand crank model and a couple dudes from their service department came out, fixed it and gratefully accepted some ice cold bottled water (it was summer) then went away. No fuss, no muss. I likes 'em.

  • The queue barger is lucky to be alive. You don't go punching random people out in Texas. This is why.

    Subby should be ashamed for mischaracterizing this event, the person holding the gun was simply protecting himself from a wild hooligan.
  • ...In what? IN WHAT??? THIS IS VITAL INFORMATION.
  • Oklahoma has CC laws on the books and we recently passed the open carry.

    was reading posts from people last night lined up at stores for Black Friday and people were commenting about "now we got open carry let's see someone act stupid"
    for starters open carry under our new law only applies to the folks who have ccw permits who apply for open carry so you can't just go get your gun and start walking down the street. had a guy arrested the other day for going to vote with his gun on his hip. Of course the d-bag got turned away and his mistake was coming back in disguise then after voting took his disguise off and was like "ta da"
  • Shame the guy with the gun didn't shoot the rude asshole.
  • dynomutt: You don't go punching random people out in Texas. This is why.


    So very true.
  • Cytokine Storm: You are all criticizing the shoppers who do this, and yet not one of you lazy bums got your butts out of bed at 4:30 this morning to drive to the store to make sure somebody else gets a merry Christmas.


    Yes, only the broke and insane go out shopping on Black Friday. Only the stupid assume that it is the only day on which gift buying can take place. I refuse to waste extraordinary amounts of time and brave the herds of stupid to save a couple bucks on a WiiU. In fact I'd pay upwards of $200 to get out of an experience like Black Friday. Don't let that stop YOU though, I do enjoy spending the day after Black Friday reading about the carnage.

  • FTFA: "They're still going about their business," Rivera said.

    All was back to normal, within 30 seconds of the rinky-tink piano player resuming his ragtime rendition of "Turkey in the Straw".
  • I'm really happy for you and I'll let you finish.
