It is a real shame that Holly left behind a six year old son. That is the real tradegy in this whole mess. How does the father of the son tell him yeah mommy shot herself. Think of this little boy in your toughts and prayers. He will be scared for life and is having an exetremely hard time dealing with the death of his mother!!!!!!

He will get over it. He will be stronger. He will not succumb to the weakness his mother did, because he father will raise him, UP.

Lisa, I have to wonder your motive in posting this. Are you with the father? Did you cheat with the father while the mommy was still alive?
Why would randomly bring this up? You were having an affair with the father, and you bring this up here? I really don't know, just seems you are trying justify something.

Your silence is the answer. You were not very smart. I am sure that the "Incident" at the shooting range was not an accident. How stupid are you, that you had say anything of it.

It was so obvious you were ratting your lover, tired of him already...becareful if he takes you shooting.

Everything you are saying is completely unfounded and frankly a bit looney. Would you like the number to a therapist? perhaps you need another fix... did your crack dealer go AWOL?

LOL

Agree...
I don't own a gun, but went to shoot out at the silver bullet with friends while they were here from England. I am not too keen on guns, but i thought i would give it a try- the place was very professional and well maintained. I am sure this is a tragedy for not only the family and friends of Holly, but those who work at the Silver Bullet. Just very sad.

You seem to very defense towards the "FATHER" that escorted the "mother" to the range.

Why are you all defensive now, you were being so heartfelt, for the child a minute ago.

I agree, the range has no responsibly in this, and tighter gun laws would'nt have helped either
Its just a very sad occurrence, it wasn’t a good time in her life to hold a gun

Another piece of jounalistic excellence. Marc Thompson claims, "gun range suicide is more common than you might think, with more than a million entries on Google.com ."

What good ol' Marc doen't tell anyone is after 15 pages (approx. 300 hits) of the million "entries" the search deals with guns or suicide, no more mention of gun ranges. Nice work Marc.

You want to write about suicide Marc? Google train suicide. You'll get 13,000,000 results. Should we outlaw choo-choo's next?
