Hi Girl!Thank goodness your family is all safe! What a mess. I cried all evening! My 83 yo Pops was having breakfast with an elderly friend at a restaurant 1/4 mile away. They closed the place and locked the doors. Shook him up pretty badly. He said cops with assault rifles were everywhere! Took him forever to get back home here! I'm sure your family was nearly panic stricken! It was chaotic. All the local radio stations were announcing to stay inside and avoid the entire city since the shooters fled in a car. I hope they're ok today, but it sure ups the anxiety.

Howdy Bert! Assault rifles are legal here but must be modified to only hold 10 rounds. no biggie though, folks can just drive to AZ.
Hey Mutt... That must have been scary for your dad. Family barely knew... mom called em all. Whew. There one of my grandmas Nephews ws struggling with his wife being on and off life support... They have been married for sixty years. She recovred about the time all this was happening. They are going to discharge her from the hospital soon as she can get out of bed and use the potty on her own. YAY
The one closest to it all is on the other side of the freeway from all of it.
Thats the stuff I worry about is Disruption of the old folks. Even someone very alert and spry could become disoriented and depression over it.
