Prayers so much for the first responders, the wife and the man who rigged his house. What a terrible thing to go through. And the man, why would he want to rigg his house? why was he so upset? was he so intent on causing some kind of pain, to his wife and to anyone who would be coming to his house? was he, so intent not only, con causing pain, but in killing anyone near?

Talk to him through a Burris MTAC and keep the first responders safe.

Does the US have gun checkpoints at the borders of states with strict gun control?
