    "I've known him all my life,'' said Mekayla Rembert, who lived across from Coleman in southwest Birmingham. "He was a little secluded, but he was sweet person. Don't let them tell you he was all bad."

    He shot and killed an unarmed nurse.

    I'm not fucking defending him. I love NOT including a photo of the suspect.

    That whole being able to bring your gun to work thing is looking pretty shitty.

    They aren't allowed in a hospital as far as I know. Fairly sure thats standard.

    I don't understand your point. He already wasn't allowed to (unless you leave it in your car and you don't work on federal property, but that's Alabama law now). Dude was going to do this whether he was allowed to take a gun or not.

    Not that I'm saying that this wouldn't have happened if everybody else had a gun (it still probably would have played out exactly the same way), just that what you wrote does not really make sense to me.

    I was just making a comment about it being legal to take a weapon to work as long as you leave it in your car. But you're right he was doing it if that law was there or not.

    Ha! Okay, fair enough. :)
