Martin May 06, 2012 at 10:47 PM
But isn't the right to bear arms more important than anything else?
KingNeptune May 06, 2012 at 10:54 PM
Yeah, it is. Not an excuse for poor gun handling though.

What a shame! I wish everyone would realize suicide not an anwser. I hope he survives and does better.
Dev Durer May 07, 2012 at 02:12 AM
I recind my previous remarks. The neighborhood has not completely gone quite yet.

Yes Martin. He probably had the gun illegally. If not; it is not the fault of the gun owner or the guns fault, but the fault of the person that pulled the trigger. I know I'm in agreement with many; I'm not about to give-up my Right to Bear Arms. Grow-up Martin. Stop trying to pass the blame in the wrong direction. It is not your job or the governments to take away my Rights to Bear Arms. Always remember Martin: it's far better to have a gun and not need it, rather to need a gun and not have one. Go soak your head.

Nicole May 07, 2012 at 08:27 PM

barbara May 07, 2012 at 10:27 PM

Josh May 08, 2012 at 01:30 AM
I feel bad for the family
jetman May 08, 2012 at 01:42 AM
I feel terrible that this has happened may god rest this persons soul..I was in the area when this happened. I know this is off topic but I couldn't believe it I saw an Island Heights cop there who was probably the most herendously out of shape overweight Police Officer I have ever seen in my life it was actually disgusting to see a policemen like that. I can't believe he is on the force there or on any Police Department in the county. Why was he even there nobody needed shade from the sun my god that guy is dangerous to all of us especially when hes hungry. disgraceful!!
Nicole May 08, 2012 at 01:32 PM
Jet man, i had the same thought after i saw an island heights cop ride down my street. Very out of shape...But then again, not alot happens in island heights. It's like Mayberry! Lol!
Johndeere May 10, 2012 at 05:25 PM
Ive seen that cop before too..He is very over weight and out of shape. How do they justify that as being ok. This stuff is why public employees are the enemy. Total unprofessional appearance and a poor reflection of that Police Department. Get it together Island Heights.
TheUnforgiven May 29, 2012 at 02:57 PM
My fallen angel. I loved him so.
barbara May 30, 2012 at 11:47 PM

bob July 09, 2012 at 09:45 AM

barbara July 10, 2012 at 01:01 PM
