A man committed suicide by shooting himself in the head on the infield of the NRA-sponsored NASCAR race in Texas last night.

According to the Dallas Morning News, police said the man, Kirk Franklin, died of a “self-inflicted injury” after getting into an argument with other campers.

Gun control supporters reacted with grace, sensitivity, and compassion.

No, not really. In truth, their responses ranged from bemusement to outright glee:

Sarcasm. Snark. Vitriol. It’s what we’ve come to expect from the anti-gun Left.
