How does a person who's been in a mental hospital, thinks they are the AntiChirst, and suddenly withdrew a bunch of money get into a shooting range? That poor young boy.
They where all just having a little fun with guns.

I am in such a state of shock. Guns are ruining this country. People that are mentally unstable must never have access to them as well as anyone else for casual reasons. Hunting with guns is one thing, but all these other weapons people seem to get their hands on should be banned except for the military and law enforcement. I am sick and tired of hearing about the NRA and the right to bear arms. What a tragedy this was. It could have been avoided.
I guess you are not aware of the 2nd amendment. I will not be a victim and have my firearm taken away because of people that are irresponsible. I am a (F) and I carry one everyday.

Have you read how many car jackings there have been in Daytona Beach lately? Likely not. How about all the women that are abducted and found murdered.

If the law would punish crime perps with a stiffer sentence and not offer early release in any state, people like me and others who refuse to be a victim, would not feel like they need to carry everyday.

Owning a firearm is a constitutional right. It's what the first fathers who built this country promised, it was a defense against tyranny. This woman was going to kill her son one way or another, either it be a gun or another weapon. People kill people everyday and taking a citizens right be be armed way isn't going to change that. It's just going to leave the criminals with the guns and responsible citizens without them. See link for a little gun history lesson http://www.gather.com/viewArticle.jsp...

People like her are too willing to give up their constitutional rights. Maybe they don't see how many are already being taken from us. So willing, and one day we'll wake up and all our rights will be gone and our choices made for us.

Shame on the gun range for not checking this woman out before they let her rent a gun. I find the range at fault for this murder. She had an attempted suicide on her record and was mentally unstable. Why didn't they find that?? R.I.P Mitchell!
Another person who knows NOTHING of guns or gun laws finding fault with others. Alright, I'll educate you. The gun range CAN'T "find that out" because they do not search background records, and even if they did, they wouldn't search mental health records. The law does not say an otherwise disqualified person cannot rent a gun at a range. The only thing worth finding fault with is idiots who spout off with no clue what they're talkin about.

A senseless moral and spiritual tragedy caused by materialism is far worse than a senseless physical tragedy caused by a gun, car crash, money, or any other material substance, etc...

Yet, still no one says christian terrorists. After all of the shooting sprees in America (your own land) caused by the Christian Americans themselves.

Correction Mr. and Ms. ego (satan), monotheism is totally blameless for any of its faulty members, and has so many rebels because of the theory of materialism.

Without ego and prejudice, Islamic monotheism is truer by main objective ground of truth than Jewish and especially than Christian monotheism is, despite all its faulty members.

I guess you did not know that this woman had been banded 2 times prior to this.
She is known to have been mentally unstable. There is no question the range is responsible for this.
I am a responsible gun owner. I have been to the Tampa. I shot there 1 time and I will never go bad. They DO NOT patrol the range. I've heard of a few situations that happened.
I am sick of stories like that make guns look bad and have the anti-gun nuts run wild.
I hope Shoot Straight suffers because of this. All they want to do is sell guns.
With intelligence like yours I hope they take your guns away.

Nuclear weapons don't kill people, every nation should have the right to be nuclear armed. That'll keep everyone in check.

Oh, but i do!!! If this the"King"... You should have seen this coming! YOu could have protected us all from the headache that we are going through now. Stop making excused for the insanity that is Marie Moore and just realize that she was certifiable.. And go would have never asked her to harm her son. That should have been your first clue!
RnMommy, it's quite obvious how this tragic incident impacted you. It's also left a lasting impact on me, but please don't lay a guilt trip on others for not stopping Marie Moore's actions. She alone was responsible for what she did. The guilt her survivors may be experiencing is devastating enough; having complete strangers who have no knowledge of this woman's history lay blame on other family members and friends is horrendous. She indicated in either her audio recordings or suicide note(s) that she didn't share her plans because she didn't want to be re-committed to a mental hospital, so it's very probable no one but she knew what was going to happen. Two innocent families are grieving, please be kind with your words.

Who is Marie's boyfriend, KING? What does he have to say about her mental condition? Why did Marie tell him, "that's all the money I have left?" Was he involved with her in a larger sum of money? Does she use only a nickname for him because he is married? Maybe his last name is KING. Like Larry King. I would like to know if she shared all of this with him ahead of time.

What if she is family? Maybe we should all be careful of the things we say! You never know who it is you are talking to.

i had a bad spell recently and felt like i was the anti-christ...its a common psychological theme among depressed, boderline people.....but it does not mean taking someone's life - it is not a justification to take an innocent life - if she really felt that crappy about herself she could have just offed herself in the woods one day...but she did this out of jealousy of her son and his girlfriend who where happy...she was not and not able to be happy anymore - its still no excuse

The blame is to be placed squarely on the Judges and "medical" authorities who allowed this crazy-nut to be let out of the Psych Ward back in 2002. 50 years ago, crazy persons like this would have been placed in a straitjacket, locked up in the loony bin before they could hurt anyone and never let out.

Watch the movie "Changling" if you think it is a real good idea to just throw people in mental hospitals because they seem crazy. Who determines that. Also check out china -- you don't follow the party line you go to a "mental institute" and get your idealology straightened out.

Everyone is a little crazy, a little depressed, maybe follow a different drummer but that doesn't mean they have to be institutionalized.

If you listen to this woman's tapes, as crazy as that is (very disturbing) she "claims" she was tortured in the hospital and she didn't want to go back so was maintaining some degree of sanity in the outward sense. Maybe they need to look at whatever hospital she was Baker Act and find out how much help she really got there.

This twisted way of thinking is the very reason why Mitchell Moore is now dead.

No Waldo, I don't get my ideas from the movies nor do I base my logic on what they do in Hollywood... This woman is not a "little crazy". She shot her own son in the head... She's ghoulishly INSANE and should have been locked up long ago when she demonstrated "clear signs" of harmful mental behavior. I don't however expect people like you with your twisted logic to understand this. Its people like you who make apologies for the perpetrators of crimes and evil doings and then paint them as the "victims".

I believe that you have a history of mental disorders in your own family and that is why you are apologizing for this crazed Ghoul.
