Some guy started shooting right across the hall from me at Columbia Mall. Right across the hall. I can't stop shaking.

As soon as I heard the gun shots I zoomed through the store. I left my bag, my shoes my Phone. EVERYTHING. ITS A ******* SHOOTER IN THE MALL

Does anyone know if this mall is a “Gun Free Zone”?

The regime is getting desperate to disarm the sheeple again, so here come the weaponized Zombies to the schools and shopping malls... again.

Hardly a day passes in the last couple of weeks but what some loonie finds a target rich gun-free environment and starts shooting the place up.

What a funny “coincidence” eh?

Stand by for the strident presidential bloviation demanding “common sense gun control”... again.

Don’t be surprised if he end runs Congress and gets a reach for his Imperial pen this time.

Stay tuned.

So, JaSonne, tell me why you wouldn’t simply find a heavy, deflective object and slink behind it? Do you think you are safer running around and exposing yourself as a target?

Gads!

Kinda like the two guys in the woods who come across a bear.

One guy starts lacing on his running shoes.

“What are you doing,” asked the other. “You can’t outrun a bear.”

“Don’t have to. Only have to outrun you.”

You are right. The human eye is drawn to movement. Running gets you noticed. Granted, it is a more difficult shot but... If there is cover (soft) or good cover (hard) available, take it...and be prepared to fight if you are discovered. Draw and prepare your weapon to fire... Oh, wait, that's right. This is yet another idiotic "gun free zone" that why goooollly, turned out not to be "gun free" did it? Seems "gun free zone" signs only keep the law-abiding from bringing defensive firearms. Criminals bent on breaking numerous laws and causing harm and death to people don't seem to be phased by such signs...maybe even attracted by them.

I hope a few dozen people sue the mall management for criminal negligence in forcing them to be disarmed. Send them into bankruptcy and maybe the new management will re-open with more sane policies.

It’s Maryland, so it’s essentially a gun-free state.

She says she ran away from the sound of the gun shots out the back of the store. Why hang around and be a sitting duck?

JaSonne Jones:

I'm glad I was with my family. I'm glad we're all good runners. I'm glad we're altogether.

I was with my family & we heard a bang from across the hall. Then we heard another and went through the store to the...

....back door. The whole time shots we still hear the loud shots. So we ran to the nearest place which was PF Changs

Tip over the nearest table and unscrew (twist, break) one or two legs to use as cudgels.

If you gonna die, die defending your freedom.

Those gun free signs are never posted where I can see them..... DARN! I only abide by signs I can see easily! And if I do see such a sign I take my business elsewhere.

This many shooting incidents in such a short period of time is directly proportional to Krystalnact in Nazi Germany.People better wake up and realize the Obummer administration will do ANYTHING to be able to disarm law abiding citizens in the USA.

Probably not an option in a Nor’east (MD) mall.

Likely a “Free Death”...I mean, “Gun Free” zone.

Columbia Maryland is a VERY Liberal planned community. They have an LL Bean store which is the only reason to go there if needed!

From the posts, this appears to be an on-going situation.

I’m dropping out until I hear different...no reason to question the values of those under fire right now.

The People’s Republic of New Jersey has Maryland trumped when it comes to anti-firearm laws. BB guns are classified as a firearm and slingshots are illegal.

Columbia is a planned city, developed in the 60s and 70s. I was there a few times years ago. I had the impression that it was an upscale suburban city between Baltimore and Washington.

I wonder if a bad element has moved in there, or if gang types hang out at that mall.

Columbia was built to be the utopian bedroom community where all colors, creeds and incomes would live side by side. Now, some 40 years later, reality has intruded. Neighborhoods (”villages” as they’re known) have segregated themselves. There are some very nice areas and some you don’t want to be near even in daylight.

Sounds like a murder-suicide. Which suggests a personal matter rather than some mass shooting event.
