WEST VALLEY CITY — A man accused of locking himself in a West Valley home and firing rounds from an ASSAULT RIFLE...

Hold on, and STOP the press.

Why do far-right-wing gun advocates keep trying to protect guys like this?

I'm sure he bought the gun thinking it would protect him in some way but guns are just dancing with the devil. Having loaded weapons ready for that "burglar" is just likely to escalate a personal situation into a death in the family.

I'm sure at some point he'll be glad he didn't succeed in killing himself. I doubt he would have ever tased himself.

You should never have to resort to using a lethal device in this day in age anyway.

You can have your guns, I'm just pointing out it's not that smart.
