Man Tragically Gives Up On Life

A man purchased a shot gun at the York gun show. And then committed suicide.  It appears that the man may have been living out of his pick-up truck.


It’s a tragedy when someone gives up on life.  And we in the gun community hate giving the anti’s fodder.

But let’s review the facts:

– Background check wouldn’t have prevented this.

– Elimination of private party sale (what the anti-gunners like to call the Gun Show Loophole) would not have prevented this.

– 7 day waiting period. Might have prevented this. But more than likely would have just changed the method or delayed the occurence. People who want to commit suicide, will succeed.

– 10 round magazine limit, even 5 round magazine limit would not have prevented this.

What might have prevented this? Counseling? A better job economy? God? But a man’s freewill is his own.
