    Just read the article and I’m a bit confused. How exactly, would a background check ensure that a person isn't going to commit suicide? Usually, this is a one time event.

    Ok, I understand the gun range policy as I think I was almost turned away one day because I wasn’t pre-registered as a member of the range. The owner was my friend and told the range guy that I was Ok. At the time, I didn’t get it but now I do.

    So what does one do if there's no local range, and like me, don't have ready friends to go with me? Maybe I'm in the market for a different make, or it's my first gun and don't have one to bring along?

    Pointless policies like these tend to make one suicidal.

    I have walked into several different out of state ranges with my own gun and never had anybody blink when I asked to rent a lane with out of state license. But If saw somebody who did not have at least one of their own firearms with them,looking to rent a lane without an instructor watching or instructing. I would be nervous as well standing in the next lane.

    I own a car rental company and we not allow people with learner permits to drive my car even with a licensed adult in the passanger seat. It is legal with DMV but nope. Why? I do not want them learning on my vehicle. Who wants/needs the headache.

    Go drive your father,mother,sister,brothers,aunts,uncles vehicle. Not mine.

    A policy like this one wouldn't have caught the woman who took her child to a range, rented a gun, and proceeded to commit murder-suicide.

    "Feel-good" policies are just fluff.

    Like many "safety" policies, this is an attempt to stave off possible litigation, not to actually make things safer. I've only been to a half-dozen ranges in three states but they all have this policy. Most of them put it somewhere on their website, but it usually isn't given a flashing icon.

    I apologize for the grammar mistake, I do not think I can change it now. I am still trying out different handguns. Being a resident of NJ makes it hard for me a acquire a handgun while taking classes in Ohio. I have not been in NJ since I turned 21 to apply for a permit.

    At the range where I work we had a couple of suicides over the years. Insurance company makes us get a form filled out and signed by renters with questions on it like "are you depressed, suicdal, homicidal?". It's a liability and insurance thing.

    But I'd be willing to bet on it, due to all the suicides that have been taking place in the past couple of years at these types of facilities.

    I was at the Shoot-Straight in Casselberry a couple days before this incident happened. I actually saw the surveillance footage online- the poor kid had his back turned when his mom put the gun to his head.

    What a messed-up story. :(
