    I've read a few stories about this today. This could go a couple of ways.

    It appears that he'd been drinking a while and decided to play with his guns. Talks about how safe everything is, then God decides to skim the gene pool.

    Or. There's only one side of the story here. Maybe the girl friend was tired of his drunken antics and took advantage of the situation.

    Who knows? Either way, it does not reflect well on the community and the media will jump on this like a Colorado space cowboy on an E.B.T. card.

    We're probably well rid of him. There's no telling what else may have happened down the road.

    After reading the article, it would seem there is a new show coming into the picture. "Moron's With Guns"

    You make a good point. With no other witnesses, what the girlfriend says is gospel. Since it follows the standard media bent, even if it turns out later to be untrue, this initial story will never be corrected or retracted. Besides, fixes are always very small and on the back page - this story was closer to the front of the newspaper with a large headline.

    "Russian Roulette with a semi(auto)..." LOL!! The visual is priceless! At least the person dumb enough to suggest it is the only one harmed. Now if drunk driving would only work that way.

    I had another thought, it was a demonstrative suicide strictly for her benefit and she's telling a different cover story.

    Personally I do not see what he did has anything to with a 'demonstration' of gun safety.:confused:
    It just 'demonstrates' what happens when a person disregards the basic firearms safety rules.:eek:

    According to the originally linked article, we don't know that:


    "Three young children, not related to the victim, were in the house at the time but thankfully did not witness the shooting."
