Why did the "Coward" with the permit wait till someone gets killed before he did anything? A real POS!

Maybe he didn't have a clear shot until the person fell from being shot. Who knows? I'm going to wait until more details come out before passing any judgments. Too early and too little information to make a reasoned judgment.

    Without knowing the full details, how can you make that assumption? Maybe he just showed up when the shooting occurred? Maybe it all happened so fast that it was simultaneous.
   Clear shot?, getting family out of harms way first?, shock- unless you've been in an actual gunfight, no one knows how they'll react?
    Too many what ifs for me to pass judgement.

^^^^All of this is a fact. Unless you are attacked directly such as getting in your car or a perp has entered your home at 3am you better know the situation before you start blasting away. What if the guy you kill turns out to be another good guy with a permit like you?

And this folks, is why we don't have these kind of discussions here. People, not in possession of the full facts, going off 'half cocked' and getting themselves into arguments which lead to harsh words, bad feelings, and eventually someone gets shown the door. All over a news story.
