Two women started yelling at each other in a Toys ‘R’ Us store in Palm Desert, Calif., the day after Thanksgiving. One of their husbands lifted his shirt to reveal a handgun. The second husband didn’t take too kindly to the threat: he pulled his own gun, chased the first man down, and started shooting. The only two people hurt: the two men, Alejandro Moreno, 39, and Juan Meza, 28, who were both shot to death by the other. Despite the shootings, shoppers streamed back to the store the next day to take advantage of the bargains. “It happened once,” one woman shrugged. “It probably won’t happen again.” (Palm Springs Desert Sun) …Though most shoppers went in armed, “just in case.”
