    The pro gun agenda? You mean the Constitution for this great country you live in?

    "Man shoots self in Wake Forest"

    Uhm, pretty accurate. Not quite seeing the leftist anti-gun liberal agenda of the fascist media.

    Exactly. This pro gun agenda just leads to the loss of more innocent lives and I for one am tired of it.

    I'll take a lap for misreading your post about shooting someone else but what makes you think this was done out in public and not within his own home? Doesn't sound like the general public was in danger.

    Wait, what? Since the article was posted it clearly said he shot himself. Where do you get that he shot someone else and that he was physically out in the street and not just in a home off N Main?

    Crazy how someone can read 1 sentence and twist it all up.

    Oh my GOD...the first post made me cringe and now someone's agreeing with them. The guy was on Main Street...HE ACCIDENTALLY SHOT SOMEONE ON MAIN STREET. Thank God it was himself and not you, me or some 4 year old. Remember the lady in a Wake Forest Target last year whose kid caused her gun to fire in her purse...INSIDE the store? I can smash my finger with a hammer on accident without the risk of killing an innocent bystander. This is news because people like this are a public menace. I don't have anything against gun ownership per se, but when everyone thinks they need to carry one around for their safety or whatever, none of us are safe.

    as a gun rights supporter, i couldn't agree with you more. i do agree that the title makes it sound like suicide when it was really an accidental shooting. but, ask yourself...which really helps the anti-gun crowd more...an accidental shooting or intentional suicide?

    They will NEVER miss an opportunity to push their agenda. Used to be that WRAL was a real news outlet, today its merely a tabloid with a leftist agenda.
