Hard to tell what really went on. The fact that he basically sprayed the area with bullets is odd. I pray the truth can be discovered. Prayers too for the loved ones of the woman.

Gee, the both of them should have been in the bed asleep instead of arguing. Now he is facing life in prison. My condolences to her family and friends.

"Focusing only on one tool rather than the violence will not solve the problem."
Incredibly insightful! Nice to see people asking the right questions. Besides, if we make guns illegal, it will be just one more unenforced law like immigration or drug laws. It wont do anything productive at all to solve the problem.

Game, set and match.

Very true, but if someone is in the act of stealing something even in ones home one does not have the right to harm them unless they have reason to believe the person stealing is about to cause harm to someone or themselves.

Just as soon as they limit knives, boats, swimming pools, cars, planes, rocks, bats, etc.
Gun control is not about guns, its about CONTROL.

Just because he knew her doesn't necessarily mean she wasn't robbing him. JMO

Banning guns want stop people from killing people. Just makes it easier. This has nothing to do with guns it's just another murder. There will be another we just don't who, where and when yet.
I know some stuff Jul 8, 2:14 p.m.
With a nation full of hot heads, impatient people, over stressed people, and a good share of not so smart people....it's nuts to think MORE guns is the answer. When are the politicians going to have the guts to act in the best interest of society, and start to seriously limit guns?

What, not emotional enough for you?

"epidemic of gun violence in this country" - Super Hans
We seem to have an epidemic of violence. Guns are just one tool of many that people use. Focusing only on one tool rather than the violence will not solve the problem.

If you take away the ability of law abiding citizens to defend themselves there would be far more deaths. Look at Africa where only Islamic militants and the government have weapons. That's worked out well there huh?
landonsgrampa Jul 8, 1:39 p.m.
It means that you don't jump onto your soapbox, when the murder weapon is not a gun. Whether it be knives, cars, rocks or whatever else one person can kill another person with, unless it is a gun, you disappear.
Super Hans Jul 8, 1:36 p.m.
There would be far, far fewer deaths. Do you argue otherwise?
68_dodge_polara Jul 8, 1:20 p.m.
Because you blame only guns, if they were gone would the violence stop? Not any more than banning forks so people would stop being over weight. It's a dumb argument.
Super Hans Jul 8, 1:12 p.m.
I'm sorry, what does a homeless man being stabbed have to do with the epidemic of gun violence in this country?
I-Defy Jul 8, 1:04 p.m.
Lets talk about it, but the problem you anti-gunners have is your ideas of totally banning guns and rewriting the Constitution to fit your emotions just isnt going to happen. I notice you havent commented on the homeless man being stabbed, because stories like that dont give you a soapbox to trample my rights You will even stand on the graves of dead children to push your agenda.
Super Hans Jul 8, 12:58 p.m.
It's not WRAL's fault we have an epidemic of gun violence in this country. Would you rather they tried to sweep the issue under the rug like so many gun owners want to do?
Desiderata Jul 8, 12:53 p.m.
What was she doing IN HIS home while he was sleeping...drugs and money involved??? She may have gotten what she deserved going into his home while he was asleep...if that part is true.

4 out of 7 headlines are all about death, murder and more death.
Good job wral. No one covers life's trama better than you guys.
