    I've not yet had an argument, or met a woman (including my wife), that is worth committing something like this over. Are we so pathetic that a 'domestic' dispute is worth spending the rest of your life in jail and taking someone's life over. These insane saps must have so little to live for that this seems like a viable way out. It is totally inexcusable, it just makes me sick.

    Wow. Somehow, I wish we humans were able to control our emotions better. Freedom of will seems to be a bit risky at times. Very sad indeed. :(

    I swear... Gun crimes in the US are unacceptable, especially when over "domestic" disputes!

    It's not the guns, it's the people. They can kill just as easily, and do, with knives, baseball bats and other items that can cause blunt force trauma.

    Kane killed Abel way back before there were guns and video games and television and movies were around to blame, after all.

    Lying, cheating, scamming, manipulative women need to be put down once in awhile.

    prolly a bad experience

    seriously these crimes are getting old. I hate big cities for that reason. You see it less in the smaller communities where people risk reputation.

    Ah, but with a knife or a bat, you have to see the initial blow or stab, watch the blood flow, look into your victim's shocked eyes, and THEN strike again, and again until the job is done. With a gun its different.... A moments rage, thats all it takes. A lot of responsibility to put in the hands of an emotional lifeform.

    I dunno man, 36 stab wounds made by a letter opener - that kinda stuff does seem to happen from time to time.

    If anything, it may seem to initiate a "blood rage" that brings an even more animal component to the surface.

    Blech. I think I'll skip having Medium Rare steak tonight. Doh!

    The point I was making is that the ability for an individual to stab another 36 times with a letter opener is certainly more scarce than the ability for one to pull a trigger in a flash of rage and anger. I suppose an anti-gun post really. I dont own one and if nobody did, then things like this wouldnt happen. I dont really subscribe to the whole "guns dont kill people, people kill people" idea.

    Men shouldn't be allowed to carry firearms; that would prevent most homicides.

    As I've always said, Guns don't kill people -- men who come home early do.
