...of cards in this card room, which is just around the corner from my usual haunt, the Geezer coffee stop.
Brand new place, Texas Hold'em is played there. Guy comes in and first thing everyone knows, he's lasing them with the laser sights on his pistol. He cuts loose, no one in there was armed, so two got hit. Gunman was a lousy shot, especially with laser sights, so two wounded. He didn't reload, just wandered off and was arrested without incident just down the street.
I guess this rumpkin just wanted to finish his life in prison, or in the State Hospital.
In Oregon, you can carry concealed in bars and cardrooms, if you have a CHL. I guess that there might be a few converts to going out armed in my town tonight.
The message here is: no matter how peaceful a city, no matter how neighborly everyone is in your local, one of these idiots can come in at any time. I'll bet everyone in that cardroom thought it would never happen to them.
