    Police: 5 dead, 8 injured in shooting at Florida airport
    The suspect is in custody, but no details released. Would it be a "white supremacist" they have already been yelling very loud.

    This is about 20miles from me. Its a crazy world we live in. Protect yourself at all times. Keep your head on a swivel.

    Am I the only one that walks into any building and immediately looks for the exits and the best plan to evacuate?

    That should include facing the entrance when seated in a restaurant, for example.

    The image going around the internet looks like a first gen Walther PPS. The magazine to frame fit is pretty distinct.

    The shooter was receiving psych treatment and lives in Alaska - from the news I just heard.
    Also, its illegal to carry firearms in airports. ?
