Authorities handled shooting incident well

(Continued)

There will be those on the side of gun rights who will say that the incident in the store supports their contention that everyone should have the right to carry a concealed weapon and that Carfagno’s life might have been saved by his possessing a gun.

On the other side of the issue is the fact that someone who has as checkered a past as Renert was able to obtain a weapon. Also, a customer or bystander could have been wounded or killed by the bullet fired by Carfagno that missed Renert.

But those are arguments for another time. For now, let’s all be grateful for a peaceful end to a scary episode.
