Honestly kids will be kids and while I understand the need to protect yourself David I don't quite understand pulling over in the K-Mart parking lot...if you felt the kids were trouble then why stick around...if you have a license for the firearm then you shouldn't have any problems but if everyone remembers while Bernie Goetz was protecting himself on that NYC subway he still went to jail....remember that next time you carry a piece with you for protection!!!

people who dont "hang out" in parking lots generally dont need to carry weapons. I guess hanging out is more important than just avoiding trouble altogether. Aparently stupid is contagious among many of todays youth.....

And to clear another thing It was not a firearm it was a baton. Another false statement.

Just to give you all a heads up David was a real trouble maker in school and when he was with his friends he was nothing short of a bully. Thank you SCPD !!
