But yes, most people do not get involved if it is a family thing and not a personal threat,
Getting involved, though, in this instance would have meant that he had time to think. There was the first gunshot, and then there couldn't have been more than a second or two before the second shot. He probably didn't even get turned around until after the second shot. It happened so fast. I sure feel sorry for the guy. I'd probably never get over seeing that.

No one had to shoot her. Read the article. After she shot her son she immediatly turned the gun on herself.
Well, that's what they're SAYING, but you know those gun nuts are quick on the trigger when there's some sht going down.

At least the woman was a good aim with regard to her ex son, so we could avoid another Schaivo legal snafu.

I'm sorry the system has neglected you. You can commit yourself to an institution. Just go through the front door and tell them that you are a danger to yourself and others. Or, in more normal language, tell them you want to hurt/kill people and then hurt/kill yourself. They have to take you then. I sincerely hope you get the help you need. I have a cousin in the same situation but he refuses to think he has a problem. Please, don't end up like my cousin. Get help, soon!

This kind of flies in the face of the logic that if folks inside a building was packing heat, some idiot wouldn't try to come in and shoot others.

This woman shot someone inside of a building where EVERYONE is packing.

No one shot her back in response

Seems to me logic has prevailed. The nearest person to witness the shooting did in fact take out the shooter. Had this been a school or work place were no one was armed she might have felt as the anti christ she should take out as many as she could.

A little more realistic though. Not every one is a hero. That doesn't mean that that no one would have attempted to stop her. The video looked to me that by the time the man in the next booth looked and saw it was a done deal. Terrible waste of another young life.

Yet again, a person with a KNOWN history of mental illness and felonies, posses a fire arm. It is illegal for her to do so, but they don't do a background check on every person who comes into a shooting range.
Remember, Laws and locks just keep honest people honest.

Don't we live in the electronic age? Can't they just swipe the woman's drivers license and get an approval like we do with credit cards? Why don't these protections exist?

Not to mention - HEY GUYS! This is a shooting range... There are pretty CONSTANT gunshots and most everyone is wearing hearing protection..!

Nothing differentiates her actual killing form the target practice going on throughout the building.

Is this irony or an attempt at (exceptionally) black humor?

Exactly. The only thing he MIGHT have noticed in that split second was that the sound of the first shot would have been BACK a few feet, out of the booth area where the sound SHOULD have come from. Then she backed up a little, and the second shot was a couple of feet even farther back. Not that he had time to react anyway. And even if there was time between the two shots, him reacting to her in any way would have put his own life in danger. Also there were other people there, too, just out of that camera's range. Everyone there was extremely lucky.

You're projecting Scoop.

This murder-suicide was NOT motivated by "money".

I agree, no one is going to be surprised at hearing a gun shot in a shooting range. Then you take into consideration that most people aren't going to mistake a smiling woman and her son as potential victoms of a murder/suicide. That poor man that was next will probably live with those images in his head for a while. He commented about seeing the boy spitting blood and laying crumpled on the floor. One can only imagine what the mother looked like shot in the face. I feel bad for the guy. No one could have seen that coming. At least not the shooting range owners/ patrons.

You would think the son would be somewhat aware of his mothers stability or past illness and wouldn't have allowed her use of a firearm especially in the same booth AND behind him. I really hate to see such a innocent victim taken by the hands of his mother. I hope she pays in the afterlife as she claims to "king" she will.
I feel for the man in the other booth having to see something like this, on an innocent trip to the shooting range.
Never turn your back on the ones you love(especially if their unstable and anywhere close to something remotely dangerous)no matter how much you trust em.
