    Although I was in Colorado at the time, it made national news. My question is: Anyone in here from Texas that was old enough to remember that horrible day?

    I was in California at the time (I know, I'm SORRY, and I got here as soon as I could), I remember it very well.

    Yes. Student at Pflugerville High School. Played Killeen High in Killeen shortly afterwards as the game for that week was rescheduled.

    I'm old enough to remember them, but having lived on a different continent at the time, the first time I heard of it was when reading Unintended Consequences, I believe.

    Yep. I'm with what JRB said. Leave the house, even if I'm in the drive through at Whataburger, I'm packing. You never know when some idiot is going to lose their mind.

    I was only 11, but I remember it. If anyone hasn't seen Dr Susan Hupps testimony to Congress, I highly recommend you watch it. It's such a powerful speach on why we should have the right to carry, and she talks about being helpless while watching her parents get murdered.
