It might have been an accident.

I just saw images of Oscar Pistorius in court weeping and thought what a shame that a moment of anger might have changed his heretofore beautiful life forever.

So I advise, if you have a tendency to be a hot-head and have guns around do at least one of two things: get help to solve your hot head or get rid of your guns.

What I hear, he was paranoid and infatuated with guns, and he slept with a pistol, so this was a timed bomb ready to go off any time.

“A pistol and an automatic rifle openly displayed in his home, according to a British journalist who visited him. When a U.S. writer visited, he took his 9 mm pistol and two boxes of ammunition to a firing range for target”.

Paranoia + infatuation with guns = Killing those who love you. Period. The police  don't believe it was an accident. The paradox is, those who live in a house with guns are blinded to believe that they are protecting themselves from the outside while the danger most of the time come from inside.
