Guns in Parking Lots! Murfreesboro Walmart Turns Wild West

Posted By on Thu, Jul 24, 2014 at 11:54 AM

As good Tennesseans know, any situation is better with guns.

To make sure that guns can be a potential factor in any situation, you want to be sure that people are carrying guns in as many places as possible. Bars, parks, etc. Wherever you are, you want there to be a decent chance that there are guns around.

Having established that, check out this story from WGNS Radio in the 'Boro, where 37-year-old Angela Scruggs was arrested after allegedly pulling a gun on a man who told her to slow down as she drove through a Walmart parking lot. Scruggs reportedly told police that "the man walked over to her with his hands in his pockets," so she pulled out her gun just in case. Of course, there's the other side of the story:

Jason Hill, who called the police, told officers that Scruggs actually pointed the weapon at him when he asked her to “slow down.” He then told Scruggs that he would call the police. He said that Scruggs told him, “I don’t care, I got a carry permit.” A witness told responding officers that Scruggs told Hill that she would shoot him.

We shouldn't pre-judge this situation. After all, Pith wasn't there. But one things for sure — it's a good thing Scruggs had a gun in this situation. If only Hill or someone else in the area had also been packing, then the incident really might have been handled in a proportionate, reasonable way.

Have a good day, don't forget your gun, and be sure to keep one in the chamber unless a minor incident occurs anywhere around you. Be ready!
