This is getting bad.
This would be a good day for the president* to stop inciting violence. https://t.co/lxUUQs9FZz
More likely the blame lies with Texas legislators and ALEC:
According to APD, initial reports said the victim might have been carrying a rifle when he approached the suspect’s vehicle. That’s when the suspect shot at the victim.
APD said the suspect is detained and is cooperating with officers. Neither the identity of the victim or suspect was released.
I presume from that the suspect thinks it was self-defence. Open carry sucks.
