What are you laughing about?

 

The deaths of three people in a crowded car dealership certainly isn't funny.

 

The danger that the entire staff and customers of this car dealership were subjected to certainly isn't funny.

 

I've searched the entire article and found none of it to be humorous in the slightest.... so what are you laughing about?

BTW, private investigators in most every state can be licensed to carry guns.


Hey, hey, hey - stick to the topic. This is all about, "Bad Texas, bad Texas".

 

Don't confuse the issue with logic or common sense.

Did you read the where these were actually licensed private investigators who lied to the dealership management that they were federal agents?

 

https://www.dallasnews.com/news/crime/2017/05/30/shooting-leaves-3-dead-greenville-auto-dealership

 

Additionally did you note that the original poster didn't provide a source where he got his information?  Would that be because he  didn't want to give the full story?

I couldn't either at the erroneous inferences of the post.  Bounty hunters, licensed to carry firearms, lies to the manager of the dealership, impersonating federal agents, then engage in a gunbattle no doubt like a movie plot. 

 

And including someone from Minnesota and bounty hunters from on the Gulf Coast at a place north of Dallas.  Modern day version of the gunfight at the O.K. Corral.

    3 guys, 3 guns, 20 bullets:   3 dead.    I sure hope the families of the bounty hunters believe that it was worth it.
