While it easy to lament the fact that the "day that will live in infamy" at Pearl Harbor is being forgotten as new generations of Americans are born and educated (in government schools). However, the Japanese who attacked Pearl Harbor are a very different Japanese than those who make our automobiles and who are significant trading partners.
9/11 is a very different thing. Even though 9/11 was almost 10 years ago, 2001, the left leaning media are working hard, overtime even, to make us forget it. I cannot, and we as a country should not. They are still trying to kill us.

What is the truth behind the shooting of Erik Scott at a Costco in Las Vegas on July 10, 2010?. So far, the best that can be said is that witness accounts differ wildly.
Reportedly, Erik Scott was in Costco looking at water bottles. He apparently was sitting on the floor of an aisle opening water bottle cartons or shrink wraps and trying the water bottles in his back pack.

First, let's look at Erik's background. The following is from the obituary of Erik Scott:

I received a letter to the effect that making their stores "gun free zones" (or sitting duck zones or victim rich zones) has been company policy for 14 years. Here is the letter. My response follows:
March 11,2008Re: Half Price Books — No Guns Policy Dear Mr.Carroll:Thank you for your letter dated May 4, 2008 [sic.] and the earlier letter to the manager of one of our Columbus stores.In February 22, 1996, our Board of Directors passed a resolution making all of our stores and facilities gun free. I am pleased to report that since the “gun free” policy was implemented, not a single person, customer or employee, has been the victim of gun violence in any of our stores or other facilities.We have also researched whether or not states which have concealed weapons laws have seen a reduction in crime.
