    Seriously, Obamacare survives......that's your rational explanation as to why he was taken to walmart? Yeah, when you are shot just skip the surgions and medical staff at the hospital and drive directly to your nearest walmart, CVS, Walgreens or Rite Aid and just get yourself some meds. I log into WRAL just to read your comments - they usually give me a good laugh a few times a day.

    "I'm curious as to why the guy was taken to Wal Mart rather than a hospital."

    He needed meds, and Walmart has a pharmacy, duh.
