This whole thing reminds me of the line from Carlos Mencia:
"DEE dee dee!"
The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all.
Well I guess he doesn't have to worry about his next girl friend. What he has to worry about is being "Big Bubba's" girl friend!

Is that murder on his part, or suicide on hers?
The article might as well be written by the shooter, because he was the only witness and therefore everything that is described in the article is what the shooter claims. Sorry, I'm not going to "take a guys word for it" after he just killed his girlfriend with no witnesses.
(I'm assuming there were no other witnesses because the article doesn't mention any)
