Does this man have a concealed weapon, or can he carry a weapon?

This is important, because gun-control people say there never is a problem if the person has proper permits.

"...This is important, because gun-control people say there never is a problem if the person has proper permits.." Citation, please? I've never heard anyone say that.

You really think that if " Officers were familiar with alleged suspect and a vehicle he is known to drive" that he was a permitted CCW carrier?

At 2am? I'm betting the shooter does NOT have a concealed carry weapon and is just a thug. Apparently a thug known to the police.
