Few details. Police say shooter is contained but store employees are being asked to exit through their stores back doors.

Tagged.

Hopefully no one was seriously injured.

Except the shooter.

Unpossible, malls are gun free zones. Get your facts straight OP.

injuries being reported by fox news

I have a couple of friends who were at the mall. They're hiding in stores last I heard. Saw one local report of one dead and two injured.

We need a concealed carry win that the media can't sweep under the rug.

Why my wife and I always carry at the mall.

It's not "Jihad" or "Terrorism."

It's "Nihilism."

You didn't get the memo?

Just saw on Facebook that the rumor is a pizza place guy shot his wife and kid.

yes, and let's just pray that the shooter wasn't one of them.

OP, can you change your title to "a Florida mall" instead Of "Florida Mall". There is actually a giant mall named Florida Mall, and the title is misleading.

Yeah, it's at the Melbourne mall which isn't a very big mall. That's why I'm thinking the crazy guy rumor is correct.

We sometimes go to a mall in California about an hour west of us. I never see any "no firearms" sings posted. Probably because it's not very common for people to CCW over there.

Okay, I read the title earlier during a shoot, and got terrified that it was THE florida mall, and rifles. Thought it was gunna be a bad day.

THE florida mall for those that don't know.

You wasted post number "1111" on that.

Me, I would have gone for a serial number thread or some such.



Okay, back to serious tragedy at mall now.

I used to live in that area and have been to that mall many times. It is not a bad part of town, it is pretty much all middle class. A lot of people in the tech and aerospace industry live there. We have a bunch of friends that live in the area and had some friends that were in their when the shootings happened they are saying it is pretty crazy right now with all the police.

My dad owns a house in Grant and I meant the redneck comment in a positive way. A lot of really nice folks. I hope they are all okay.

Not in Florida; signs, rare as they are here, can be legally ignored.

We have nothing like the 30.06 law here.

All malls are carry zones in Florida.

Seriously? By law or by request from the ownership?

ETA - Answered above. Are there a lot of gun-free zones in Texas? How common are the 30.06 places?

Malls are not gun free zones in Florida neither by law nor whether or not the owner requests it.

Gonna go out on a limb and say lovers quarrel, wife is 33. She was injured, husband was 57 died of self inflicted gun wound. Third person, male also dead. Unless he tried to be a hero, I think he was involved with the wife.

I believe that I read somewhere that 1 in every 17 residents of that county have a permit. This is skewed by there being a huge number of snowbirds that aren't "residents" but it's still an impressive percentage.

I have seen a number of 30.06 signs around TX, almost always incorrectly posted and therefore irrelevant. About the only place I have seen them correctly posted is at the gun show. I am not saying the law was written to make it tricky to make a place off limits, but...
