    At least this jerk saved the taxpayers much money. Now what about the innocent life he took and the surviving daughter? Uggh. I like guns. Love guns. But I wish the handgun had never been invented. But you can’t say that either because there are some times when someone legitimately protects themselves with a handgun against a larger or more deadly foe. IDK. This just smells of dumped lover/angry lover to me. Ridiculous.
