    Unhappy He Always liked Guns?

    He Always liked Guns?

    So this morning a player in the National Football League killed his girlfriend. Then drove to his stadium and in front of others shot and killed himself. It is a terrible thing. An innocent life taken and a child orphaned. Yet selfish dung heap that I am. Only thing that jumped out at me in the espn news story with the alleged quote from a friend saying he always liked guns. What The Flock? Had he murdered by garrote and then hung himself, would the news organizations have said “He always liked rope”?

    And is it me or does it seem like an abnormally high number of pro football players kill themselves.

    Your thoughts for discussion please.

    On-going Ken. Media Talking heads always taking their shots where they can constantly attacking the freedoms of others.

    They call it the Liberalism.

    If a Conservative doesn't like guns he doesn't buy any.
    If a Liberal doesn't like guns he doesn't buy any either but also thinks no one else should have any.

    I thought it was odd that some were talking about Honoring him etc. Honoring him? He shot the mother of his only child to death and then shot himself in the head. What exactly do you honor there?

    I thought that was a head scratcher as well.
    Note I didn't even type his name.
    I hear the nfl players make do something for the child.

    Yea according toe NFL spokespersons they've started a fund for her to ensure she is not forgotten about in this event and is taken care of. Thankfully she is that young(3 months old) and not 7 or 10 yrs old or something like that.

    Junior Seau was my friend, met him before his rookie season in San Diego...really disturbed me that he took his own life...even though the tests proved inconclusive, I have to think the years of #55 banging heads since his USC days had to have taken its toll...makes me wonder what will become of my heroes like Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman after their many concussions...look at Muhammed Ali, even though no one laid a glove on him till later in his career,look at him now

    Have no idea about the situation in in KC, can't/wont excuse the fact that the FB player killed someone, it was a real chicken s*** way out

    But yet the college student that killed his dad and dads girlfriend with bow and arrow... They barely mention the bow. Then the kid kills himself with a knife, wonder if "he always liked knives?"

    Your comments about rope, and garrote seem a little crude my friend. An abnornally high number of veterans kill themselves on a regular basis, football not so much.

    Murder/suicide is not a conservative nor liberal exclusive....

    If you got the point of Ken's post, I think the rope reference was smack on target, personally.
    Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.

    I don't think the media response is Liberalism. It is Urbanism. They don't see that people own guns for purposes other than killing people. They see rural America as a dangerous place filled with Jed Clampets and guns.
