Thin The Herd!

HELENA, Mont. (AP) – A northwestern Montana man shot and killed the host of the Sportsman Channel show “A Rifleman’s Journal” in an apparent jealous rage while the TV personality was visiting the shooter’s wife, police said Friday.

200131720-001Wayne Bengston, 41, then beat his wife, took his 2-year-old son to a relative’s house and drove to his home about 25 miles away in West Glacier, where he killed himself, Whitefish Police Chief Bill Dial said.

“It’s pretty much an open-and-closed case. Homicide and suicide,” Dial said. — sportsillustrated.cnn

Another strong advocate for second amendment rights has stepped up to help his neighbors, thinning the herd and freeing up additional parking spaces.  Thanks, Sport!

    Yep! Just like why spoons make people fat.

      I don’t follow your thinking, Maggie. You think somehow this suggests the gun is at fault here, and not the irresponsible asshole who owned it? Not the point at all, although it’s true, as I’ve noted before, that just having weapons around leads to danger for the owner of those weapons:

      “At the same time, people hesitate to own guns themselves because they recognize that keeping a gun in the house is a dangerous thing to do. A gun in the house minimally doubles the risk that a household member will kill himself or herself. (Some studies put the increase in suicide risk as high as 10 times.) An American is 50% more likely to be shot dead by his or her own hand than to be shot dead by a criminal assailant. More than 30,000 Americans injure themselves with guns every year..” Source: that people with access to firearms

      So no, I don’t blame the gun for being owned by an irresponsible (and now dead) asshole. I’m merely pointing out that lots of assholes own dangerous guns, and that’s a real problem for the rest of us who would rather not be exposed to them.

      Clearly you missed that. But thanks for stopping by, and maybe next time you’ll have something more constructive to contribute to the dialog than a bumper sticker slogan.

      Gosh that’s clever, Magnolia. You’re right — spoons don’t make people fat, and drugs don’t make people high.

    A true American patriot upholding his honor, and that of real sportmen everywhere. They should be so proud.

    Nice of him to save taxpayers the expense of locking him up and trying him. Also, give him credit for the decency not hurting his own kid. But you gotta wonder about all these people with their guns — I thought having guns was supposed to make you safer?

    Too many violent video games.

    • Piles says:

      Think so, Wayne? You figure violent video games played a role in this 41 year old man’s murderous attack and suicide? That makes sense to you, really? Or maybe you’re just another talking bumper-sticke who can’t face the reality of how dangerous guns are.

      • Wayne's World says:

        Piles…chill, dude. It’s called sarcasm. It’s sad when a blatantly stupid remark is considered legit. But then again, stupidity is the new reality by the gunnies.

      • Piles says:

        I hear ya Wayne. I read what you wrote about 30 minutes after I’d been talking to some douche who said exactly the same thing, and he was totaly freaking serious. He blamed everything on video games and violent movies.
