I doubt he would have been enough of a man to kill them without a gun. Thanks again to the NRA, we get to go to another funeral.

Just so you know,..... the NRA was NOT there pulling the trigger. They had nothing to do with it. Stop blaming a sick individuals actions on the NRA.

to the family and friends of teh victims.. my prayers to you for the strength you will need to get through this obviously difficult time and for God's comfort for your hearts.

Or thanks to the cars for all of the drunk drivers.

I hate it when people blame objects for the actions of people.

If this guy had not had a gun, he would have still killed them. Why? Because the gun that he used was just a tool. If he had not had that, he would have used something else, because he wanted to kill people.

Get your head on straight and see the real issue. It wasn't the gun, it was the murderous nature of his heart that caused this trajedy.

I knew Becky when she was a young women in her twenties, she a beautiful person, inside and out. It greatly saddened me when Kenny called with this terrible news.

My condolences and prayers go out to all of the families and friends.

I will always remember Becky as the vibrant person she was and for those that know & remember tha great times we had on the Beer Run

you people with your blaming the gun laws and the NRA. there was a comment about the gun was only an object. Suppose he cracked the end of a beer bottle or vodka bottle then what. We need to point the finger at a beer comapny or Grey Goose for killing them? same thing. I knew both Mike and Becky and they where are still are good people. I don't know what could of made Mike snap like that but it does bother me that a friend would do this. But think about this before you go and pointing fingers. Do you think you know your own neighbors? so for the people that don't know the family. keep your comments to yourself. and send your thoughts and prayers to the family for there loss and to the Fontana family also just think about is family have to like with and probably labled to society because of you people?

keep our comments to ourself? In case you are unware.. this is a public forum. If you want a place where only good things are said, you should create it and moderate it yourself, then you can censor anything you don't like.
Back on topic, I am so sorry for the family and friends of this family. I know how painful suicide can be to a family but cannot even fathom a murder suicide. Obviously this man was mentally ill.
