    You men kill me, knuckle up, everybody is in such a hurry to shoot and kill. Speechs to the character of men these days. Arguements are not worth dieing over nor looking over your shoulder for either.

    Mud, your correct, but come on man, its all about the free stuff that we'e going to get from the government. A couple of Vato's shooting at each other aint nothing man. It's like taking out the trash, happens every day, but nobody notices.

    No one cares about a shooting.....People are more interested in banning tobacco and getting free "govment" checks and healthcare than who got shot and why violence is on the increase. I mean smoke a ciggarette it may kill you in 20-30 years but that guy there with a glock........ no worries he is no immeadiate threat...

    It's getting bad when shootings don't even shock the public any more. What is Eastern NC coming to?
