If you look closely, his link has a ] before the www. Just remove it and it works. I'm sure he'll fix it soon.

Damn

How about a Fuck Mike. Here's my reasoning. If he really felt it was necessary to kill him/her, he could have picked a less asinine way to do it. He knew what he was doing to everyone in our community by doing it this way, and he didn't give a shit.

I hate it that he got caught up in this mess and did what he did, but it could not have come at a worse time. I love the "truck load of guns" statement. He was a fucking dealer, he's going to have alot of guns.

He was acting out of rage without any regard for himself,let alone others.

A few months back,someone broke into a mans house and stole some of his stuff,including an old samuri sword.He had a good idea who did it and went to the guys house to confront him,armed with an SKS.After kicking in the door,he saw his samuri sword and the thief,he grabbed the sword and cut the thiefs arm off then fired six rounds into the guys chest.He's been sitting in the County jail since February awaiting trial.

When triggered,some People just loose it.These are normally rational People that get pushed over the edge.Its a tragic waste.

I'm with Campy Bob on this one: damn, just damn. It is a trajedy, and if the news report is at all accurate there were signs this guy wasnt handling life very well, with police making several previous visits to his apartment, etc. Like others have already said, however, you never know exactly what circumstances will take a normally rational human being and push them over the edge to the point of total lack of any governing controls on their own behavior and a breakdown of all rational cognition. Sadly, these types of events can hardly ever be predicted in time to prevent. I would bet we have all had feelings similar to this man. I know I once did. I found out the girl I thought I was going to marry was cheating with a guy who was "supposed" to be one of my best friends. I had a terrible time coming to grips with it but, thank God, never lost control. Needless to say, learned alot about friends and women from that experience. Anyway Thank God none of the children were killed. I wish we could rely on the courts, media, and public to see this as a random act of violence that could have involved a knife, club, pipe wrench, automobile, etc. just as easily as a firearm, but we all know we cant. Those of us who exercise and enjoy the rights we have must hold ourselves to a higher standard and try daily to live in a way that reflects the most positive light possible on ourselves and our hobbies, beliefs, and way of life. We the gun owners are the ones the world is watching.

No excuse. If you did something to me that I thought required you to die, I'd at least have the courtesy to everyone else to do it in private.

This is the exact same logic (?) that the liberals have been using for years to promote the banning of all firearms.

Sorry, but I gotta go with QS on this one. Totally selfish act. That doesn't take away anything from the tragedy of the whole situation though.

Condolences to Campy. My thoughts are with you.

My friends and family keep worrying whether I'm going to be "that guy", the one who goes on a shooting rampage because his dog told him to or because his cornflakes were soggy. I wish I could say something that would erase all doubt in their minds, then crap like this happens. Out of the blue, a gun enthusiast turn a hobby into a tragic crime.

I agree,this was a totally selfish act.But I still believe he let his emotions over rule all rational thoughts.This,I believe,is what made him go on a rampage instead of realizing that he was better off without her and carrying on with his life.

I'm not making excuses for the Guy,he still knew the difference in right and wrong.What a waste.
