‘He turned around for a second’: Calif. man goes to gun range and shoots himself dead

Published

An unidentified California man reportedly sidestepped federal law and shot himself to death after renting a gun at a shooting range, KTXL-TV reported on Wednesday.

The man acquired the gun early Wednesday afternoon at Guns, Fishing & Other Stuff, a shooting range in Vacaville. The store’s owner, Travis Morgan, told KTXL anyone renting a gun to use at his store’s shooting range must sign a waiver.

However, while federal law requires a background check for people purchasing firearms, it does not do the same for anyone renting a gun at establishments like Morgan’s, enabling the man to take the gun to the range, located in the store’s basement, and turn it on himself.

Morgan said this was the first incident of his kind at his store, which left his staff “overwhelmed.”

“We’ve been trying to find what we could have done differently,” Morgan told KTXL. “We have monitors in the range, we have people down there, and he turned around for one second.”

A similar incident took place at Center Mass, another local shooting range, in March 2012, when a Sacramento man was found dead from a single gunshot to the left temple. The Solano County Coroner’s Office determined that the man’s death was a “possible suicide, not an accident.”

Watch KTXL’s report, as aired on Wednesday, below.

"Congressman, you are always welcome, wherever I am, at nine or eleven, whenever," Cuomo said.

"Thanks Sean," Gaetz replied.

"Did you just call me Sean?" Cuomo asked. "Did you just call me Sean?"

Published

on

On Thursday's edition of MSNBC's "The Beat," Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) broke down how Rudy Giuliani's misconduct in Ukraine is "inseparable" from President Donald Trump's.

"To everyone who asks whether we are moving too quickly, I say the president's lawyer is moving quickly to continue to ask a foreign government to cheat our elections, and doing nothing is completely off the table," said Swalwell, who sits on the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees, the two most crucial committees in the impeachment inquiry. "We have to secure our elections. We have powerful, uncontradicted evidence now. And now is the time to hold the president accountable and determine just which impeachment articles we should proceed with."
