Reading between the lines, maybe she stepped in front of the gun and dared him to pull the trigger.

"The man then tried to point his gun at the ex-girlfriend, but his current girlfriend attempted to stop him from threatening her."

Yep. She sounds like the only decent person in this story. The other two deserve each other.

It is unfortunate that the gun owner could face jail time for making such a simple mistake.

You have got to be f*cking kidding me

Boy am I glad he had a gun, otherwise this Real Texas Man might have had to talk to a woman.

She was everything that he wanted in a woman and with one slight modification an intellectual equal.

Assault by pointing and assault with a deadly weapon should be the charge

Attempted murder? No. He wasnt trying to kill his current girlfriend. It was an accident that she got shot. He didn't intend to attempt to kill her.

I guess that's the controversy part of the site's "News. Controversy. Opinion."

Ya gotta shoot the ex-wife now or for the rest of his life he'll hear: "You could put a bullet in that skank ho but did you ever shoot me? No! Not even a .22 on Valentines day. Maybe if you shot me once, we'd still be together."
 
2013-07-11 01:31:23 PM
In any event, the gun owner was not the true victim in this story.

Really? You don't say!
 
2013-07-11 01:31:23 PM
ex-girlfriend. Sorry.
 
2013-07-11 01:31:35 PM
The poor girlfriend gets to wake up on a hospital bed with a bullet wound, a boyfriend in jail and a presumably smug romantic rival who managed to come out of the confrontation unscathed. Will she forgive her boyfriend for shooting her in the chest and stand by him as he goes to trial? Or did this Texas gun owner trade away one bullet for a new ex-girlfriend?

This is some fairly awful journalism.  It sounds like the intros that Doug Llewelyn did for The People's Court.

HighZoolander: This terrible situation could have been avoided if only they'd all had guns.


Agreed. If the ex-girlfriend had a gun, she could have defended herself and if the current girlfriend had a gun, she could have just shot the guy's gun out of his hand like in the movies.

Attempted murder? No. He wasnt trying to kill his current girlfriend. It was an accident that she got shot. He didn't intend to attempt to kill her.


Isn't the rule that you don't point a gun at someone/something if you don't intent to shoot? Attempted murder sound like that right charge. If the ex-gf would have died maybe it wouldn't be murder-1 but it'd still be murder.

It is one of those generally accepted social rules for responsible gun ownership but it isn't a law.

Pointing a gun at someone and charging them with attempted murder makes about as much sense as charging someone for attempted murder for them pulling a knife on you.

He didn't just point the gun, he also fired the gun. He didn't hit his intended target because his current gf jumped in the way.

The only line that mentions "attempted murder" is this one (emphasis mine):

"They might even have grounds for charging him with attempted murder or a similar crime for attempting to point the gun at his ex-girlfriend."

He had his finger on the trigger while pointing the gun at his ex, and may well have shot his ex were it not for the fact that the current got in the way.  Thus, it was an attempt on the ex.

Well, if the guy wasn't such a colossal p*ssy, perhaps he could've dealt with a woman without drawing on her.  Oh.  Wait.  Texas...

LordBeavis: This is some fairly awful journalism.  It sounds like the intros that Doug Llewelyn did for The People's Court.


This.  Besides, considering the current was trying to  defend the ex, and seems to have literally taken a bullet for her, if anything they'll both end up being ex's of the dude and the previous ex will want to become friends with the current/new ex.
 
2013-07-11 01:50:32 PM
What a dumb ass.  Everyone knows that when the ex shows up you do not grab a gun.  You grab a mace, preferably one with spikes.

Yeah, because she had no idea until now that he is a dangerous, violent, p.o.s. loser, right?

Maybe if you didn't make such shiatty choices in men you wouldn't get shot so much...jus' sayin'

While that concluding paragraph is pretty bad, I did like the bit earlier in the article.  The girlfriend gets taken to hospital and "goes from critical condition to stable condition.  The couple's relationship, however, may still be in critical condition."

I'm imagining that read in Wolf Blitzer's voice.  I don't know why.

Blame the victim much? Tell me, what's the appropriate number of times you should get shot, per child out of wedlock?  I know you wouldn't DO it, but what would you consider a reasonable number?

Of course.  You break a car, a house, a window, a toy...those all cost money.  To make a human, you don't need any money at all.

So, yeah, a simple mistake.  Duh.
