Wouldn't it be ironic if the firearm used was traced to MA?

Y'know, when I read the headlines that the shooter shot himself in the head, I assumed that he died... then I read this:
He said Williams shot himself twice in the head, but was still able to talk to police when they arrived.
WTF? Why couldn't he have saved VT the price of a trial?

I just saw the latest report & he has been released from the hospital. And transferred to jail. It also said that his ex-girlfriend was not among the dead or wounded, contradicting last nights reports.

I'll never understand these types of shootings.

The morning news said he was originally from Springfield.[thinking]
I wonder if someone in VT is going to put up their own billboard asking MA not to export it's killers.

Wish we could. Unfortunately billboards are illegal in Vermont.

The killer has an extensive criminal record in Mass. Check it out at http://burlingtonfreepress.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060825/NEWS/60825009.

Good point, I forgot they were illegal there. Thanks for the link.

TonyVT, Welcome to the board.

From CNN
...He said Williams shot himself twice in the head, but was still able to talk to police when they arrived.
Just goes to show there wasn't much in his head to hit to start with.

Vermont, a Free State
Remember, up here we blame the perp, not the gun. Not to mention that the Governor's room mate in his college dorm (UVM) was the son of a gun dealer (it wasn't me).

Tony, which part of the state are you in? Welcome, it feels good having another Woodchuck here.
