Delaware Courthouse

In Delaware, 2 people and a murderer seem to have been killed, plus 2 others wounded during a shoot-out at a courthouse. There's not a lot of info, but it appears that an estranged husband shot his wife along with some other as-yet-unidentified people.

In Tyler, they were fortunate enough to have Mark Alan Wilson. They were especially fortunate he was around during a similar event.

Unless there was someone who acted like Mr. Wilson did, expect the press to do it's usual job of demonizing gun owners because of the actions of a murderer, while ignoring all the folks who used firearms defensively. (if my math is right, even using the lowest estimate of 55,000 DGU's per year, that'd come to around 150 a day.)

I'm guessing the courthouse was a gun free zone.

That seems to be the case. Check the "more here" update.
