    The death happened November 5 and the article including the widow's statement is dated November 26. What do you mean by fast?

    I think this might be our lad. As someone in the comments said, this really didn’t age well. You’d think someone who was a 2A supporter would know warning shots are a terrible ******* idea.

    Hmmm, interesting. So many things about this just don’t make sense. I think these people have quite a history with each other, and not a good one at that. IMO

    I thought the shooting was more recent. It still appears she is trying to get ahead of something with this statement.

    I agree….and I think there was more emotion than fear behind his reason to kill Chad Read. IMO

    She admitted that she ignored the court ordered custody visit. Of course the ex husband showed up for his court ordered visit.

    I made it 2 minutes and would wager that this guy has dreamed of using a weapon for “defense” over many years. I’d also bet that if anything is charged, he will seek public glory and say he is being beat up due to his political stance.

    It’s not bull at all. If Kyle had shot him when he fired that shot into the floor when Chad was right next to him and reached down for the gun, THAT would have been self defense, but once Chad tossed him along with the gun ten feet away from the porch and did not go after him, THAT’S when it became murder. The timing is everything. IMO

    Does anybody know where this firearm was in the house? He emerged with it pretty quick so he sure didn’t need to look far. Most keep long guns in a cabinet or a closet. Do they have guns laying around when children are present?

    Yep, guns and emotions just don’t mix.

    IMO Kyle is a small man and acted like one , running inside to get his gun.

    I don’t know, but that’s one of the reasons why Jennifer Read wants custody of Chad’s children. A past poster said that Chad’s Ex wife and their children live with Kyle in his home. I can’t even imagine what that scenario is like.:(

    Smart thing to do when a much larger person is on your property. Actually, it is smart even when you are a large person.

    Yes. I'd way rather have a gun to defend myself or a loved one, than to not have one.

    Definitely a Napoleon Complex. Probably got kicked around on the playground growing up so now he hides behind a big gun or two or three or more to feel powerful.
    He didn’t kill Chad because he feared for his life, he killed Chad because he was humiliated when Chad threw him and his big gun across his own front porch like the pansy he is in front of two women and made him look like an ***.
    IMO (And I bet he drives the biggest 4WD truck on the market too!):p:D:p:D:p:D:p:D:p:D:p

    Using that same weapon to provoke someone so they can kill them isn’t going to prove to be the smart move if the law does their job.

    When someone is on record as the above video and casually talking of their political enemies and the 2nd amendment, it’s sketchy at best.

    Immediately after the shooting, the shooter says something about it being his "place of employment." Was it not a home?

    Is there additional video from inside, such as when he went in and retrieved the gun or walked back outside with it?
