  1. Just goes to show you what stupid people with a gun can do. Stupid to let yourself get that worked up, stupid to walk out into the street and fire away not knowing where the bullets are going to. Stupid enough that I now want to know if he has a legally purchased gun or not.

    Had hoped it would not happen in Maplewood but I guess there is not respect for where crime happens.
