What kind of a fool shoots himself for self-promotion?
Thank goodness the man who had been arrested was cleared.
This still raises the same questions we ask in other shootings profiled here - where did this guy get the gun? Is he crazy, or just stupid? And whichever is the case -- do we want either crazy or stupid people making decisions about when and where to use firearms?
It is an indictment of our gun culture that this idiot thought using a gun was the answer to ANYTHING. Because clearly whatever flawed decision making process he used, our attitudes about guns and gun violence was what he was hoping to appeal to, and was the underlying basis for his action.
