One should be very cautious about asking such a question. Not keeping in mind the circumstances and person in such a query could result in personal injury.

In all seriousness, NEVER say stuff like that, or “You don’t have the guts to shoot”, etc.

Also, NEVER talk when you should be shooting.

Too bad it didn’t happen in Oregon. Then the husband could just say it was “assisted suicide”.

From the article:

“Christopher Thorson told investigators he then went into the bedroom, assembled his shotgun and loaded it. He then went into the living room and shot his wife, Byrd said.

Investigators said Christopher Thorson then went out on his back deck, smoked a cigarette and had a glass of wine, then called 911.”

Dang.

reminds me of having "rodeo sex". As you're making love to your wife call her by another name and see if you can hold on for 8 seconds.

Stu Pidass; he didn't LISTEN to her, just like a stereotypical man! He never learned that women want validation of their problems, NOT solutions to them.

He was only expected to DISCUSS why he should or shouldn't shoot her.

Why "no doubt"? Just because she was female? Because absolutely nothing in the article supports your claim. It could just as easily be that she made his life a living hell, with her vicious mouth, and finally, after 37 years of sheer hell and verbal abuse, he simply snapped.

From article: "Christopher Thorson told detectives the couple had been fighting and arguing since early Thursday morning. The husband told investigators his wife kept calling him names and yelling at him. Finally, according to Byrd, Vanessa Thorson said to her husband, "Why don't you just shoot me?"...the couple had been married for 37 years..."

There is no justification for murder, period.

Now she is dead, killed in cold blood, and you believe his explanation? How sick.

Here is a GREAT explanation on the differences between men’s brains and women’s brains. VERY true, and also very funny.

“Men’s brains have tiny boxes, and we only discuss what is in that box, and then we put that box away before we talk about something else.

Women’s brains are made of a big ball of wire, and Everything is connected to Everything else! And all powered by emotion”

You're right. Any wife who says that to a husband who just went and loaded his shotgun and pointed it at her is looking for out.

The husband sounds like a real bastard!

As evidenced by the fact that he deliberately went and deliberately loaded and pointed the loaded shotgun at his wife.

And then pulled the trigger.

Well, sure. How silly of us. I forgot. Men are perfect.

It's always just one person's fault and always the wife.

She just pushed him to do it and he couldn't help himself.

What a wuss.

I’m getting private mail telling me I’m wrong, that it is OKAY to committ murder under the circumstances this man tolerated from his wife.

There is something called divorce. One doesn’t have to committ cold blooded murder, and that goes for both women and men.

I’m not sympathetic in the least towards a woman or a man claiming “my abuser made me do it”. What a crock full of crapola!

Of course you’re wrong. You’re the woman. Men are never wrong.

Even Adam used that excuse. *Hello God. Oh. The fruit? Well, you see..... That woman you gave me made me do it.*

Blames the woman AND God.

There’s nothing new under the sun.

Since there are no details concerning what is claimed to have been tolerated from his wife, the speculation can go the other way.

What must she have been through to figure that being dead was better off than being married to him?

The fact that he pulled a shotgun on her already tells me where most of the blame for that relationship goes. No real man worth his salt would do that. If the marriage was in that kind of shape that it would push him to take that kind of action, why did he let it go so long and why didn't he try to figure out what to do to either salvage it or end it.

Cold blooded murder is not the answer.
