Birmingham Alabama Security Guard Kills One and Wounds Another

Local News reports

According to the Birmingham Police Department, 27-year-old David Winston was shot dead last night at the Inn Town Suites, off Huffman Road in Huffman.

The incident happened at 11:30 p.m. Officers say Winston had been shot several times, and died at the scene. A woman found at the hotel had also been shot, but is expected to recover. 

Police have arrested a security guard who works at the hotel.
Would it be too much of a leap to say this was a lawful gun owner gone wrong? Could be be so bold as to assume he probably had a concealed carry permit?

It's too easy to say the "vast majority" of gun owners are safe and responsible. Those who are not are in the news every single day, day in and day out. And the sad part is much of this could be avoided with little or no cost to the truly law-abiding.

  1. It's too easy to speculate, especially since this story has few details. You've been shown the evidence that carry license holders very rarely commit crimes with their guns, but you're impervious to evidence.
