Default Man comitts suicide at gun range

For the third time in about three years at this gun range, someone rented a hand gun and killed himself. This will bring out the anti gun nuts in droves.

Shoot Straight suicide: Man commits suicide at Shoot Straight gun range in Casselberry, Florida - OrlandoSentinel.com

This range is only about 6 miles from where I live, and I would hate to see the locals force the range to close over this. I don't think they will, but I expect to hear some noise about it.

They should put a sign up.

"Please DO NOT commit suicide in the gun range."

Yeah, that should work.

The range will probably stop renting guns or adopt the "buddy system" in use in many California ranges where you are not permitted to use the range alone...there must be at least 2 people in your party.

Of course anti-gunners will ignore the rental gun connection and blame the range as a leading cause of suicide...

I agree I think a "No Suicide" sign should do the trick. I mean hey if it works for "No Gun" zones. Wait isn't it already against the law to commit suicide. Maybe we need another law. Surely they wouldn't break 2 laws to commit suicide.

It may prevent them from getting sued from distraught family members looking to make right where it does not exist.

I feel for these people doing this, I'm sure they are troubled.

After the last nut job shot her son and turned the rented hand gun on herself, Shoot Straight stopped renting guns for about 4 months, and then resumed. That was about a year ago. No telling what they will do today.

Saw someone comment that the ranges should not be there so people would not shoot themselves. I guess pharmacies should not be there so people could not off themselves with prescription meds.

I am also lobbying for a CCW requirement to buy a baseball bat since some guy killed his neighbor a couple of months ago with his kids bat.

We had the same thing happen here in Kansas City fairly recently, guy rented a gun and *BANG* all over.........It happened at "The Bullet Hole" a large indoor range built by B.E. Hodgdon and was at the time the largest indoor range in the world. Now Hodgdon Powder and the Bullet hole share a parking lot.

Here's a link to the range's Site, in particular its history if any one is interested:

The sign should read:

"Suicide is a felony and it's strictly prohibited on the premises, violators will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law"

I agree. Its strange in a way, of all the ways to do it, going to a range really speaks to the level of preperation a commitment these people had. Really a shame.
