Ludwig and his family hunted

Excerpted from http://local.lancasteronline.com/4/18684 (context changed around a bit, so read the story for the full, contextual report):

“Until four days ago, he was an 18-year-old young man, not unlike any other 18-year-old man here in Lancaster County.

Police said the Bordens disapproved of their younger (14-year-old) daughter dating Ludwig and had called him to their home around 7 a.m. Sunday to discuss the situation, after learning she had been out all night with him. Neighbors said when Ludwig arrived, Michael Borden told him to leave a red duffel bag he was carrying outside. At the end of the discussion, around 8 a.m., the Borden’s 15-year-old daughter, Katelyn, told police she saw Ludwig pull out a handgun and shoot her father. Katelyn Borden ran for cover, police said, but heard a second shot. Police found the bodies of Michael and Cathryn Borden, both 50. Both had been shot once in the head.

David G. Ludwig obviously had access to guns. More than 50 weapons — including three assault rifles, plus numerous shotguns, handguns, rifles, scopes and bullets — were confiscated from the Ludwig home. Among the list of guns listed in the court document were three AR-15 rifles, commonly known as assault rifles, which are the civilian version of the U.S. military-issued weapons. Many of the weapons were handguns, according to the list, including several .22 caliber and .38 caliber Smith & Wesson handguns, several 9 mm Ruger pistols, a Taurus .357 caliber and a Glock .45 caliber handgun.

Friends have said that Ludwig and his family hunted.

Ludwig lived with his parents, who police said have been extremely cooperative with the investigation. Ludwig’s parents, Gregory and Jane, issued a statement Wednesday, asking for prayers and apologizing for the incident."


UPDATE: Some interesting tho speculative and maybe untrue? and I have to say pretty rough stuff appearing at

amazing stuff......

i really couldn't help myself.
- go to the original site that you made reference to at the beginning of your article, and search the thread for "thirdpartypointofview" - that's my brand spanking new username for that particular site. I'm so glad I can make reference to my gun control beliefs here on an aussie site without worrying about the 201,876 gun nuts asking me what am i gonna do when someone hijacks my car or burgles me at gunpoint.

woops, back to studying.....
stupid emotions.....
