Will Nascar Speedways now become Gun Free Zones?

And it was sponsored by the NRA. Liberals will say the NRA killed him.

From the article: “Early reports indicated that alcohol could have been a factor”.

Man, I'm ready for some tin foil. NASCAR drivers get warned about NRA sponsorship, bad publicity, etc. and now some guy shoots himself at the race? The day before major gun legislation comes up in the Senate? Whoa.

Have there been suicides at any other NASCAR events?

Firearms + alcohol + emotion = deadly combination. Sad outcome for the guy’s family and NASCAR Community.

Some say driving around an oval at 200mph is suicide.

Seems pretty likely given the number of attendees, times the number of races, times the number of years.

I didn’t know that either. LOL I’m thinking: NRA 500?!?! Did they mean NASCAR? Up near the Thumb?

Odd what one learns on FR. There’s a Tecumseh, Kansas, too.

So about the only time the liberal press will use NRA in the name of the race is when they can try to tie The NRA to a shooting death!

He will probably do something even crazier next time to get even more attention.

It would be more interesting if fans could shoot paint ball guns at the cars..... ;-)

I don’t usually react so badly to losing arguments.

May it was the first one this guy ever lost and it devastated him. Or he was very drunk.

She said the man in the gabardine suit was a spy
I said, "Be careful, his bowtie is really a camera."

Wow, what a blast from the past! Thanks!

NASCAR is culpable in the charade too.

I guess the old derisive joke about NASCAR racing (drive fast, turn left) is figurative, too.

Since the brown shirts tried to stop the sponsorship of the race by the NRA, and the moron shot himself, it must have been a Obama agent.

It will be interesting to find out if it was his own gun, and if it is registered.

I have always said that alcohol and testosterone are a bad combination.

They try that all the time at NASCAR races. All they do is break bottles.
