Man applied for pistol permit before deadly stabbings in Wyoming

Posted on 12/03/2012 5:22:23 PM PST by matt04

The Vernon Police Department said a 25-year-old man from the town, who is believed to be responsible for killing his father and another woman in Wyoming, applied for a pistol permit before the murder.

Police said Christopher Krumm stabbed his father, Jim Krumm, 56, a computer science teacher and his father's girlfriend Heidi Arnold, 42, who was also a professor at Casper College, a Wyoming community college, on Friday morning.

According to police, Christopher Krumm first stabbed Arnold, who was his father's girlfriend, at the home he lived at with his father before going to the college.

Investigators said the 25-year-old then went to the school's campus and shot his father with a bow-and-arrow in front of a group of students in the Wold Physical Science Building.

Police said Jim Krumm tried to fight off his son while students escaped. Christopher Krumm then stabbed himself several times before fatally stabbing his father in the chest, police said.

Vernon police said Christopher Krumm had applied for a gun permit in October. The permit was still pending at the time of Friday's double murder.

"(Chris) Krumm was fingerprinted and his completed application was collected," said Vernon Police Lt. William Meier. "The application was still pending at the time of this incident and no permit had been issued to Krumm."

Vernon police along with the Hartford Bomb Squad searched Christopher Krumm's apartment on Friday night. No hazardous devices were found in the unit.

No permit meeded to buy handgun in Wyoming.
There's more: no permit is needed to carry a hand gun concealed in Wyoming. It's one of four states with constitutional carry.

As far as I know NYC and MA are the only places you need a permit to simply buy a gun. Even in CA you don’t need a permit, just pass the background check and wait 10 days(which is bad enough). IMO, this BS statement was put into the article because the liberal MSM was pissed that a gun wasn’t used to kill these three people(I am counting the perp, although I didn’t see where he actually died from his self inflicted wounds) so they threw in the “waiting for a permit” statement so they could condemn guns anyway.

He was probably a “Hunger Games” fanatic who went over the edge! I think we should blame the violence in movies involving bows and arrows!

Maybe he saw an anti-archery Youtube video! /s

I guess I'm going to have to see Hunger Games. I see lots of references to it.

Solution: make murder illegal . . . oh, wait . . . we kinda did that, eh? It hasn’t stopped murders from happening though. Hmmmm.
