2. He had a right to defend his wife against that much younger man, but not with a gun!
And yes, I read the story and know he tried to use physical force, but unsuccessfully.
Obviously, he should have never have resorted to a gun. Better to sacrifice his wife and himself. Reckless cowboys like this yahoo having access to guns is why America isn't approved by the cool kids--Europe, Canada, Japan and New Zealand. They're civilized and know that it's better for an old man to watch his wife take whatever a 20 something young man feels like dishing out than to resort to using a GUN!
He should be imprisoned for murder, shooting that fine young man like that!

7. The most likely place to need a gun is in your home, not walking around in public with dang thing.
Living without a gun at home is laudable too -- but, the home is pretty much the place for guns if anywhere. Then again, their are a lot of dead spouses and children because of guns.
