Stupidity hits close to home...I'm only 74 miles from Knoxville...

Two Shot in Dispute Over Tab at Hooters AP
Posted: 2007-12-29 11:50:55
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (Dec. 29) - Authorities in Tennessee are searching for a man who shot two people when he opened fire outside a Hooters restaurant.

Police say the customer fired several shots into the Hooters restaurant in Knoxville after getting into a disagreement over a tab he was refusing to pay.

Police say after managers asked the man to leave, the suspect went outside and started firing shots from a .40-caliber handgun at the building.

A manager and a customer leaving the restaurant were wounded and are in critical condition at a local hospital.

The shooting happened just after midnight, local time.

Wanna bet he's been drinking? Violates a couple of gun rules if I'm right.:frown: Tracy

Doesn't make it any better, but maybe he left his gun in the car. And was obeying the rules. We have open carry here, and the extremely few times I have gone to a bar/restaurant that has alcohol, I leave it in the car. I don't put it on (which would be a violation of consuming alcohol and concealed carry), but I have it in the car which is a thin line for being in violation. Then he went to get it. Tracy

He probably had a few...but still...its stupid.

I like to have a few beers and a even a few sips of "shine" (and sometimes a few too many of both) when I'm out riding my mule, but I have never, even for 1 second, thought about doing anything like that. I never go out on the town drinking...I prefer the hills. After the last time I took Henry (my mule) to the local bar...my wife wont let me go anymore. I passed out on the way home...I had him hitched to the wagon...we made it home fine, the local LEO's told my wife Henry even stopped at the red light ( they followed me to make sure we made it OK)...needless to say that wasnt his first trip there...but it may well be his last:biggrin:

Small towns...ya gotta love em.

EDIT: I do carry when I'm up in the hills...but I just dont have it in me to do something like that guy did...no matter the reason.

I need to get an animal that can do that! Now that's a useful pet trick. It would probably be tough to find a crevice in a mule where I could leave my CCW while in the bar, though.... at least, one that wouldn't make the gun smell horrible.... :biggrin::nuts::eek:

Friggin nuts out there are going to be our undoing. And my mother in law thinks I`m nuts for carrying. She had the audacity to say I was bragging about my CPL since I was packing x-mas eve...I had to stop at a local grocery on the way to her house. While I am certainly no racist...the store is known locally as the 3rd world...there are stabbings and shootings all the time there. I refuse to become a statistic!!
