Well, that's good to know. I knew you weren't that smart & couldn't come up with this stuff by yourself. Poor thing. Jesus rules though!

It was an accident. Austin is a good guy & feels horrible for what happened. Yes it was wrong that they ALL where playing with the gun but he nevet ment for that to happen! So before you talk shit get your facts straight! How would you feel if you shot your girlfriend or boyfriend on accident & everyone looked at you like your a crazy murderer?!

Well what if the shoes were on the other foot? She could have just as easily picked up the Gun playing with it, and saying, Im gonna shoot you not knowing the gun was loaded! Then Boom! The guns goes off1 It could have been Austin just as well but it wasn't, and im sure he wishes it would have been him instead! He is not a murderer, it was an accident plain and simple! Even though he is out of jail, he will pay for what he did! irresponsibly playing with a gun and shooting his girlfriend for the rest of his life he will live with it in his heart and im sure his nightmares are not pleasant! But since it was her that died everyone says it was murder! If Austin who have been the one then it would have been an accident, right? Im sorry for the parents loss of Elizabeth, whom was friends of my daughter as well! She knows Austin very well and even says Austin loved her and treated her good and wouldn't think about hurting anyone, not intentionally!

People need to let this go. I am Elizabeth's aunt. Accident or not he served his time. I pray for him everyday. The only judgment we need to worry about is God's when we die. Not judging others and making accusations. She would not want us to continually bringing this up. She would want us to make a new normal in our lives and be happy.

Why the in f**k would he point a loaded gun at some one? That's just stupid guns are not toys, and I think he was old enough to know better then to do something so fucking stupid. Yea he gets live his life he gets to have kids. What about her? He is worthless. I can't wait till he gets his pay back!

Duh, If he knew the gun was loaded in the first place he wouldnt have pointed it at her and pulled the trigger, how hard is that to understand? Seriuosly! People make mistakes and im sure Mrs, Idc you have made many mistakes, even dumbs ones such as his! You judge something you obviously know nothing about!
