  •  I might have been his victim (12+ / 0-)

    I live near Bolivar, MO and might have been one of his victims if he had carried out his plot.  It was scary to learn that someone from 'my town' was going to open fire on innocent people.  Yes, if he would have done it, someone in that town probably was carrying and would have shot him.  It can happen anywhere, folks.  Bless his mother, who wisely called the police and notified them of her son's behavior.  She saved many lives, including his.  The fact that he had mental problems before that, and he'd wanted to kill someone in that store in 2009, should have made it impossible for him to have bought the weapons and ammunition.  Mental illness and weapons could have had deadly consequences
