Otherwise, what would posess someone to be so stupid?
Police say a search of his place turned up alcohol, live ammunition and a large collection of German, Russian and Nazi memorabilia.
You answered your own question there, Wild. Most people would ventilate someone who points a rifle at them and refuses to put it down if they had the means to do so.


ETA: This article about how the weapon had been taken from him before but given back to his father soon after leads me to believe that the dude had mental issues and a friend or family member requested that the police take his weapon from him. Booze and mental health issues do not make a good combo. It probably was suicide by cop, judging by the way he lowered the rifle, then raised it again, as if he decided to go through with it.
"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” - Samuel Adams
