VALPARAISO, Ind. -- Authorities say a 60-year-old man fatally shot himself in the head at the shooting range of a northwestern Indiana sporting good store.
Valparaiso police say the man was shooting a gun he had told Blythe's Sport Shop employees that he was interested in buying. He was taken after Tuesday's shooting to a hospital where he died a short time later.
Once before we talked about this. In today's story it's not clear, but is it normal that someone can express interest in a particular gun, take it in back to the range to try it out, and then, if interested, submit to the background check? That's what we talked about the last time.
What's your opinion? I know some will say these kinds of incidents are rare, but are they really? They seem to be more common than DGUs, if you go by the media reports.
