This is just a terrible tragedy. If only Mr. Roberts Sr. had owned a gun he would have been able to defend himself from his attacker. That's why everyone should own and carry guns 24/7. I even wear one in the shower.

This defective unit could have killed his cousin over baseball cards or antique duck decoys or Precious Moments figurines. It just happened to be about firearms in this case.

Glad to see someone else wears his/her gun in the shower too. Safariland sells a sealable waterproof shoulder holster that keeps it nice and dry (see, your powers of sarcasm are useless against us).

I would not consider it a good thing that caricature and hyperbole have already been embodied in a product that you support.

The only gun you carry 24/7 would be a small little pea shooter.

A good man was killed. Keep your idiotic comments in the little pea you call a brain. Don't you realize that family members read these comments.

I know it's bad to admit but I just had to laugh at that one.

Yes, but you could carry a larger gun for some portions of the day and a smaller gun for other parts of the day, and switch them out as needed. As an added bonus, you'd be carrying TWO guns during the period that you switch them out.

The perp is the cousin of Mr Roberts. He, the perp Mark anthony Valentino, is a "Menace To Society". he was with my daughter for 5 yrs. She lived in abuse every day. He didnt work, he made his money illegally or took it from her. He originates from Prince Frederick Maryland where he has been introuble since he was 7yrs old. When he stole my car and my pregnant daughter his words to me was " Im a Con if I want to be found i will be". Believe you me Mr roberts probably did not have a chance and most likely was aproached from behind. Mark only likes to pick on people that dont fight back. The rest he lays in wait like a snake ready to attack.
My heart goes out to Mr. Roberts family. I will keep them in my prayers. However, I am still glad that the S.O.B. will finally get his just desserts behind bars.
