Georgia Gun Nut Found Shot To Death

Poetic Justice??! Rabid Gun Nuts of America believes "More Guns = Less Violence!" This fractured belief is if I have more Guns, I will be able to defend me, my family and my home. Well, 32yo Keith Ratliff of Georgia is one of those gun nuts with a housefull of guns at his disposal. And not one of them was able to keep him alive - someone put a bullet to his head.

CARNESVILLE, Ga. — Keith Ratliff loved guns. He built his own rifles. He kept bullets in his car’s cup holder. And on the rear window he slapped a sticker of the Starbucks Coffee mermaid firing two pistols.

“I ♥ Guns and Coffee,” it read.

Mr. Ratliff’s passion for firearms made him something of a celebrity on the Internet, where he helped make scores of videos about high-powered and exotic guns and explosives. His YouTube channel, called FPSRussia, became the site’s ninth largest, with nearly 3.5 million subscribers and more than 500 million views.

But last week, the authorities said, Mr. Ratliff, 32, ended up on the wrong end of a gun. The police in northeast Georgia found him dead at his office on Jan. 3, shot once in the head. He was surrounded by several guns, but not the one that killed him. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is treating it as a homicide.

“We are interviewing people of interest, but we have not named a suspect,” said the Franklin County sheriff, Stevie Thomas. “We are not ruling out any options.”

The news, coming amid a national debate about gun control, rippled across the blogs and social networking sites where his videos were popular. Tributes on Facebook and Twitter came from fans stunned that such a well-armed expert had not been able to defend himself.

“For him not to pull out that gun and try to defend himself, he had to feel comfortable around somebody,” his wife, Amanda, told a television channel in Lexington, Ky., where he used to live. "Either that or he was ambushed."

Mr. Ratliff recently moved from Kentucky to Carnesville, a city of 540 people that is 80 miles from Atlanta. He opened a business that made and repaired firearms, and was licensed by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the authorities said.

He was last seen alive at 7 p.m. on Jan. 2, the police said. The next night, the police found him dead inside the business, FPS Industries. Link

Oh the irony! Having all this arsenal to defend oneself and it did him squat!
Sorry to say this is sad but not surprising and I have no sympathy for Keith Ratliff.
It is people like him that enabled the culture that led to the Sandy Hook shooting.
This also reminds me of the gun-toting soccer mom who's husband unloaded 6 bullets into her. She was a strong gun advocate and she carried her firearm like a clothing accessory in public and at the school where her children attended. Her gun did not protect her.

Keith Ratliff, the gun-toting soccer mom and the mother of the Newtown shooter had many similarities. All produced and embraced a culture in which it is encouraged and empowering to have military-style weapons.

No one deserves to be murdered for owning lots of guns but when you advocate that the freedom of owning militia-type assault firearms and ammo outweighs the rights of children to live free from lethal violence, then don't expect decent "liberals" like myself to weep for you.

So, as the saying goes - "Live by the Sword ....... "

No-one ever said that access to a firearm guarantees one's safety, especially if you never see it coming.
That said, if you find yourself, or your loved ones, in a life or death situation, you're always better off with a gun, than without.
Regarding the myth of "militia-type assault firearms and ammo", most Americans have been barred from owning military grade weapons since President George H. W. Bush signed the law banning sales and transfer of new automatic weapons to civilians, back in 1984. (Thus raising the cost of pre-1984 weapons to well over $15,000 each. - The 1%ers can get them - you probably can't afford to.)
While shootings such as Sandy Hook are horrific, please remember that many hundreds more young people are killed or maimed every year, not by suburban, rifle wielding crazies, but by urban youths, shooting each other or innocent bystanders, with illegally owned handguns.
There is a culture of gun violence, but it's not found amongst law-abiding gun owners.
