The phone rang at 11:30 last night.

Once you're out of college, the phone only rings that late at night for two reasons. Pranks and bad news.

Last night was bad news.

Apparently, a guy that my wife works with went to a shooting range with his wife. He went to hand his wife a gun, the gun went off accidently and shot him in the head. The bullet went in the front and out the back of his head.

He's in a coma on life support right now. The doctor says it doesn't look good.

An ironic twist...I met him for the first time on Friday night. We went out to eat and he and his wife were sitting right behind us. We made small talk with them on the way to the table and that was it. About fourteen hours later he was shot.

Young guy...he's got 15-year old twin girls.

Which makes me think right off the bat ... a lot of these teens here have problems with their parents.

But would you really want that to happen to YOUR parent?

We went up there early this morning to talk to his wife. She's hysterical. We didn't stay long. It was really pretty sad.

This kind of thing happens on a minute-to-minute basis all over the world. But when it's up close and personal, and you actually see the devastation first hand,it tends to affect you.

I've said it before and I will say it again.


Wow. Deep. Here's what I think about guns....
