Required reading...

Joel Rosenberg has some required reading on a Minnesota shooting that I mentioned last month:
Among other flaws, it leaves out some key points about the murder of 'Big Billy Walsh.' Although you wouldn't know it from the KARE story -- Ourada (the killer; we can't call him the murderer until and unless he's convicted) either went home or was driven somewhere to retrieve his handgun.

That's kind of important, isn't it? It's not like he was carrying, drunk (and we'll get to that in a moment) and murdered a man out of drunken irritation in a moment of irkedness. Nope. He apparently wasn't carrying, was drunk, got obnoxious, was kicked out, and went somewhere (home, perhaps; and who drove him there? The story doesn't say), while drunk, got a gun, and came back and killed the bouncer.

Just horrible, sure. But what did his permit have to do with that? How could him not having a carry permit have prevented him getting drunk, becoming obnoxious, getting kicked out of a bar, going somewhere (home, perhaps? And, again, who drove him there?), while drunk, getting a gun, and coming back and killing the bouncer?
tnx to Alphecca
