Man Arrested for Pulling Gun in Line (desperate ammo hoarders outside Gander Mountain store)
How stupid do you have to be to cut in line in front of a bunch of people who are almost certainly armed and so completely sold on the idea of an imminent ban that they will stand out in the cold for a chance at a handful of newly arrived bullets ? Gander applies a purchase limit, of course, lest the first person in line buy the whole stock, thereby precipitating a riot.
Lubbock police officers arrested a man after he pulled a gun on someone in front of local store Friday morning.
Ernesto Vasquez, 52, along with several other people, waited outside Gander Mountains for the store to open. A dispute over place in line caused the situation to escalate to a weapon being shown, said Sgt. Jonathan Stewart, a police department spokesman.
Vasquez showed the gun and began to threaten someone in line, police said.

These lines form outside every large ammo retailer when word spreads that the store has received a new shipment. The panic-crazed mob then cleans out the newly arrived inventory in a matter of minutes. My brother says he has seen the same thing in Colorado Springs and guns have been drawn there, too.
