My friend shot himself a few years ago. On the morning it happened, he got up, woke his wife up to go to church, acting perfectly normal. She
couldn't get going, so she laid in bed. He kissed her on the cheek, and said he'd be downstairs. A little while later she heard a gunshot, and
found him laying on the floor. Not one person that knew him suspected anything like that was about to happen. Not his wife, not my other friend who
was his business partner, not his brother, no one.
And now you expect people that just met a total stranger, who passed a background check to look at the person and say "Oh, you're going to kill
yourself. I'm not going to give you this gun?" What a freaking joke!
As for not knowing, the article doesn't say they were standing on the range with him when he pulled the trigger. In fact it says that he received
his brief safety course, and began target shooting. At that point the instructors aren't on the range with you, they're back in the store/office
part of the range. So unless they were standing right there where they could see him, they WOULDN'T know what happened.
So get over yourself, and quit trying to blame the NRA, and everyone but the person that put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger.
