    UPDATED: 7:01 pm EDT April 27, 2009
    CASSELBERRY, Fla. -- Another person has been shot in the head and killed at the Shoot Straight gun range in Casselberry, officials say.

    An official with the Casselberry Police Department said the wound was self-inflicted.

    The shooting occurred around 5:40 p.m. on Monday, officials said.

    Earlier this month a woman shot her son and herself at the same gun range.

    I wonder if this person had also been previously banned from the range...

    Already have a knee jerk reaction......

    Man dead in shooting at Casselberry gun range -- OrlandoSentinel.com

    In the wake of Monday's shooting, the gun range is suspending all firearm rentals at their three locations until the state allows gun stores to conduct the same background checks for renters as they do for buyers.

    "If it costs us money, it costs us money. So what. The safety of individuals is more important," store attorney Joerg Jaeger said.

    Shoot Straight's owners have tried to conduct the on renters checks since the last gun-range shooting, but the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, which runs the background search, will not allow it, Jaeger said.

    Currently, the store asks rental applicants whether they have been found mentally incompetent, are taking medication, have committed domestic violence, or are a convicted felon, but there's no way to confirm whether the responses are correct, Jaeger said.

    People taking "mood-altering" drugs are not permitted to rent a gun, he said.

    Their insurance will go through the roof. I'm afraid they'll have to shut down the range and keep the shop. That's if they still have any money left after the lawsuits.

    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    There is no way to stop 'nuts' from doing stuff like this...if not there, they would have just picked another place.
    Granted, perhaps not renting guns might prevent some, but guns can be had almost anywhere.

    What if these two shooting had taken place in the same police station lobby? Should they then close the police station for safety reasons? Should they close the station and conduct a complete investigation before opening it up again.

    Nuts are just that...nuts, and you aren't going to prevent these plans that they have played out in these recent scenarios.

    Hopefully the local guv doesn't have them shut down as a nuisance.

    One of the ranges around here requires you to bring your own gun to rent theirs, if you're not a member. Obviously the reasoning is that if you have your own gun, you don't need theirs to off yourself. Seems straightforward enough to me. Also I don't believe you can sign up for a membership and rent their guns on the same day, unless you bring your own.

    Bullet Hole in OP Ks has a 24 hour waiting period after recieving a membership there to rent a gun. I imagine they are running a background check.
