The Huffington Post tweeted this Twitter search result which shows tweets coming from the Fort Hood area. It's an amazing feed actually. I noticed the tweet above in the feed, and had to pause for a second. So amazing and disturbing. So many levels.

Rough translation:
There's a shooting at Fort Hood, and people are being killed. I'm going to go to Walmart and purchase a firearm in order to protect myself cause I don't want to die. I'm going right now.

Update:

Upon closer reading it occurs to me that he already owns a firearm and going to make sure he has it with him when he goes to Walmart. Yes, I think that's right. So, new translation ...

There's a shooting at Fort Hood, and people are being killed. I need to go to Walmart, but first I'm going to get my firearm to protect myself cause I don't want to die. I'm going right now.
