I'm sure most of you have heard of FPSRussia and some have probably heard the sad and tragic news that one of the producers, Keith Ratliff, has been killed. Keith, husband and father of a 2 year old, was found dead at his place of business. He was an avid supporter of the 2nd amendment and had many, legal, guns in his possession. Short story, he was found in his business with plenty of guns around him. Now to the part that astonishes me, while trying to get more on the story, i came across a webpage that is for a certain political party, and all they really had to say about it is "live by the sword, die by the sword" and "funny how all his guns didn't protect him" and other saying along those lines. I'm not meaning this to be an attack of a political party, i know tons of dems that own guns, and would feel, what i believe to be the proper emotional response of the murder of a gentleman that was killed for what appears to be no apparent reason. I just don't understand turning a tragic situation into a spring board for political/personal soap box and making light of the said tragedy.
This isn't meant to be a talk about gun control, we already have a thread for that, but a talk about the lack of empathy for a wife that lost her husband, and a child that lost their father.
