Article said the shooter "Conner" was also armed with an AR.

Only in a state like Texas...If the same situation were to happen in NY with NY laws the way it is, Mr. Stacy would have been arrested, charged, & mortgage his home & cash in his retirement just to hire a lawyer to defend him in court. And if he gets off, the family of Mr Conner would sue him & get whatever is left the lawyers didn't get.

"We might have a new role model. Vic Stacy was not overeager to pull the trigger, he felt the appropriate weight on his conscience after taking the life of another person, and he hasn't let the media attention get to his head. If you ask us, the world could use a few more Vic Stacys."

Amen to that!

Nice job by Stacy, unfortunately  this is not a great article with respect to gun rights considering the other person had mental issues and had a gun.

I was thinking that at first too. But I would switch the focus on the need to bring mental health front and center -

"Conner's family explained that he had "mental problems." Police later found a notebook in Conner's trailer with nearly incomprehensible "ramblings."

Had somebody acted on Conner's "mental problems" Conner may still be alive today.

I have a family member that went through some pretty tough mental issues a couple of years back. Spoke often of commiting suicide. My family tried hard to get her "commited" but it was explained to us by the hospitals that because of civil rights issues New York State had backed down severely on "commiting" people. We were told it would take a judge to do this and that it would be very unlikely.

This is why people with mental health issues are free to roam amongst us.

Once again a mentally ill person is free to roam the community.
Its the fact that he's mentally ill and dangerous not that he had a gun. Would it be different if he went back to his RV got his car and ran them over? Or got a Machete and hacked off their heads? used a Chainsaw? A Baseball Bat?
Its the fact that he's a nut that needs to be addressed not what he used as a weapon.

It was a few years back when I was at Stony Brook trying to get them to take a family member in because of suicide attempts that I was told they could no longer "take" someone in against their will and that it had to be a judge which was very unlikely. They could only take her for 3 days if I remember right afterwhich if she said she was fine they had to let her go. The doctor told me this is why Pilgrim State and Kings Park are empty.
