CT Man in Wyoming Killing Spree Had Pending Pistol Permit Application

Police released details of the permit on Monday.

Christopher Krumm had a pending pistol permit in Vernon at the time he traveled from Vernon to Wyoming and stabbed a woman to death, killed his father with a bow and arrow and eventually killed himself, Vernon police said.

Vernon police released a copy of the state permit application at a news conference on Monday.

Krumm, 25, had been living in a rented room at an apartment house at 24 Grove St. "for a few months," police said.

He went on the killing spree Friday and did not have a handgun permit, police said.

Krumm came to the Vernon Police Department on Oct, 17 and filed the permit application, police said. He was fingerprinted and the application was pending.

The 5-foot-10, 150-pound Krumm would have turned 26 on Dec. 19, according to the permit.

His latest job was at Broadband Access Services. An Internet search turned up a company by that name with an Connecticut office at 5 Glen Rd. in Manchester.

This article is a perfect example as to why Patch and the rest of the lame stream media has no more credibility in the real world. Blame every tragedy or problem on the US Constitution. 1. An old woman broke a hip yesterday. --Blame it on guns. 2. A poor child fell out of a window. --Blame it on guns. 3. The economy is imploding --Blame it on guns. 4. The roads are in poor shape --Blame it on guns. 5. Because racism exists today --Blame it on guns. 6. Whatever, whatever --Blame it on guns. That’s right it does sound stupid. Are gun owners guilty of a crime without even contemplating a crime? Posting the permit application of an “alleged” criminal long before an investigation has been completed shows complete incompetence and neglect by the police, justice system and media. Shame on you anti American filth.
