    Argument over some dogs leads to fatal shooting

    Happened around Brownwood, Texas. A couple of hours drive from my neck of the woods. http://www.reporternews.com/news/2012/jul/30/shooting/

    How is it unstable people can get guns so easily? I mean, when you register for a gun or whatever, can they even deny you legaly owning a gun? That man was clearly unstable.

    Even the most unstable and crazy person can put on a smile, and show what he needs. Or maybe he inherited the guns, the government doesn't know about guns that aren't registered.

    I did. I'm failing to see what traits before the shooting would have given him away as being unstable.

    If that was my dog, and I somehow escaped with my life, there would be revenge. Despicable parasite.

    Here:

    There was evidence Conner "had done some writing. A lot of times, he would set up in his trailer and write. But I read some of his writings, and they made absolutely no sense. It was more or less garble."

    Conner's writings didn't reference firearms, Grubbs said, and investigators remain baffled at what message, if any, the man tried to convey.

    "I don't think it referenced to anything I can describe, and there was about five or six firearms inside the trailer," the sheriff said. "Like I said, he had a shotgun where he had been sitting."

    Paul Castanolli, a clerk at a nearby convenience store, said he had interacted with Conner "a time or two." He said the man would start a conversation with a topic, veer off that topic, then conclude on a totally different story. Conner then would just walk away, often right in the middle of a conversation.

    Another man in nearby Brownwood, who only gave his first name, Billy, said he rides his bicycle everywhere and had gotten acquainted with Conner, who seemed "always zoned out," and "always had a blank stare."

    Just to add to the things that happen..

    12 years ago, I worked a murder that was done because of dog fighting. It ended up declared a tie... so someone died.

    Anyways.. that's what the news reported.

    It doesn't have anything to do with mental illness... people, really... understand how bad it makes someone do things if someone either $#@!s on your law, or lets their dog do it.
