Live By the Gun, Die by the...

The operator of the 9th most popular video channel on YouTube--with 3.4 million subscribers--has been found shot to death in northeast Georgia in a suspected homicide.  Yes, the content of his video channel focused on gun culture and weapons.   Keith Ratliff was shot in the head at his office.  He had described his business thusly: “After a life of loving firearms and computers, I have combined both into one great new business that offers both viral marketing and quality firearms from one place."

So much for having guns for protection.  Several of his were found near his body.  "For him not to pull out that gun and try to defend himself, he had to feel comfortable around somebody. Either that or he was ambushed," said his brother, Kelly.

Ratliff posted on Twitter last August: "I went to the movies with my pistol in my pocket the whole time I was praying that somebody would try to pull a Batman!"
