Neutron stars do, however, collapse within thier lifetimes.....if they collapse far enough to "turn" into a black hole, it's not likely. However, as mass is added to a Neutron Star, it shrinks under it's own gravitational forces. I don't think there are electons in a neutron star, are there? What I learned was that the star, after gaining enough mass, super novas and then forms into a neutron star, crushing and combining all atomic particles into neutrons. Now, eventually, the star will gain enough mass and it's gravitational forces will be greater than the repulsion of all those neutrons that make it up, and then it will collapse, but into what, I'm not sure.....I don't think astronomers are to sure either.
