    This is very sad, and the anti's love latching on to stories like this too.

    I question anything posted on that self-serving website.

    Not to belittle the situation but as a mildly comical side note...

    when I clicked that link, the MGO post had a Firing Line ad at the top of the page...

    It happens a lot. I remember being at the Scottsdale gun club in 2008 when they told me about how that had happened fairly recently.


    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    This is the reason why I WILL NOT go to a Public shooting range, I belong to a paying club, Everyone knows everyone. I dont trust people that just go to a gun store, And blow there brains out, I may get hit with the Bullet to, And I really like breating to much.

    Most of the Members out at my club apperciate life to much, So I dont see anyone trying to give them self, Or others domers. I just feel a little safer if I am at a private club, I am a little nervious when someone has a gun that I dont really know. Out at the club, Everone knows everyone somehow.

    I've though the same thing. But apparently some cops work there, or are close with the place and could have there ways of keeping it quite. Just saying that is a possibility.

    I think the solution to these attempted suicides with rented guns is for the ranges to only rent Glocks.If they would follow this simple rule I think the suicide rate with rented guns would drop significantlybecausethe gun renterwould only shoot himself in the leg :P

    So, why would you think someone would lie, just because it was posted on MGO?

    Oh I think people just find it odd that it still hasn't showed up anywhere in the news...

    I don't doubt that they do, but what does that prove about MGO being "self serving", and otherwise unreliable?

    It's a pretty broad statement, there are a lot of folks on that website. Including you and I, and I believe, CV67PAT. Does this reflect on all of us?

    I doubt it... I have found that a broad brush tends to make a mess... But also I am also rather interested in why it hasn't made the paper...

    I think anyone who has discussed OC on MGO has learned a lesson about generalizations.

    As mentioned, the management at The Firing Line is composed of or close to members of the police department over that way, and they allegedly helped to keep it quiet.

    And, tonight, the theory surfaced that it was possibly an accident. I don't know, it's a long way over there to D Land.
