Whose turn is it to reset the "X days since a multiple homicide involving guns" clock?  If nobody else wants to, I've got it.

Also appears to be CJ Spiller's step-grandfather.

These isolated incidents happen all the time.  No big deal.

As a resident of Tampa/Orlando/Miami, I have to contend that most of the crazy redneck shiat happens in north Florida, and entirely different state.

Hubert Allen Jr., 72,

It's possible Gramps was playing GTA but i doubt it. Sounds like he went with the classic "going postal" instead.

Here's another law abiding citizen snapping in a culture with easy access to guns.

Wrong, subby.  Standing your ground involves shooting others not yourself.

Unless you're a threat to yourself.

He was law abiding until he wasn't.

An article that doesn't mention the completely unrelated and unnecessary connection to Bills RB CJ Spiller, who may or may not have even ever met this man. His step-grandfather.

Responsible gun owners never do this kind of thing nor do they let this kind of thing happen with their guns

Hey, at 72 might as well go out in a blaze of gun fire. fark rotting away in a nursing home.

I wonder why he was fired. CNN had reported the guy had worked for the employer for 40 years. They also said it was a trucking company. My thought was he lost his medical card due to needing injectable insulin or because of a heart attack or because of a degenerative condition like osteoarthritis. Truck drivers tend to not be well-adjusted. One driver brained another in a fuel lane because the victim was upset over the attacker tightening down his straps. Just today I watched a trucker jump out of his truck to scream at another because of a lack of turn signal. They were stopped at a red light in a turn lane by the truck stop I'm currently at.

Lots of angry people out here. I saw a sign reminding Pilot truck stop employees that many professional drivers have two personal exchanges with other humans on a daily basis. I know that there is an erosion of interpersonal skills and social problem solving among many drivers. I don't even own a CB because of all the hate and intolerance I heard coming from it when I was in training. It is like /b/ meets Free Republic sometimes. You see so many guys who drive because they can't handle being around others. Take that away from them and they sometimes only know two responses: end themselves and end the bastard that took away their life.

I wish this was snark or a troll. I love being on the road, seeing the countryside, just driving for hours with my girlfriend by my side. But so many others do this because they hate the world, they hate others and they hate themselves, and it is the only way they can function. Greater regulation has changed the nature of the industry and brought the demons of some drivers to the surface as they are forced to run legal, take piss tests, have one database after another listing every failure they have experienced for everyone who cares to see.

I am astonished that we don't see more of this tbh

Did he play GTA IV before he went on his rampage?
 
2013-08-24 11:47:00 PM
If they can put a chip into a shopping cart to lock it up if you try to take it off the lot, how come they can't put a chip to lock up a gun if you take it on the lot?

(I know the actual gizmo they put into a shopping isn't a chip, I'm just being generic here.)

Hell, he could have done all this with a single shot shotgun.  Of course, a lot of people would like to ban all guns so there's that.

BolloxReader: Truck drivers tend to not be well-adjusted.


Just saw a show the other day and it said trucking is a wonderful job to get into if you are a serial killer.  Also wondered if there is something about the job itself that will take a person with a borderline problem and push them over.  Lot of time by yourself to brood, etc.

Authorities believe Allen acted alone and are looking for a motive.

Seriously, let me give you a little hint:

I didn't realize anything happened in North Florida other than the occasional jacksonville jaguar game when a team I care about is playing

HaHa....very funny! Although, I am willing to bet the actual tractor that the victim Mabrey was driving was not in as good condition as the one pictured here as a reference. Also, isn't a tractor a kind of slow choice for a getaway vehicle? I mean, all they seem to do on the roads around my neck of the woods in Florida is piss off all of the drivers of cars and trucks.
