Even in the Safest City in America Guns Are Bad News for Women

The Orange County Register reports
IRVINE – A man suspected of shooting a woman to death outside an Irvine home was taken into custody Thursday after a more than two-hour manhunt in the village of Turtle Rock, authorities said.
Police say Alejandra Hernandez, an employee at a private daycare center adjacent to Turtle Rock Elementary School, was shot by her estranged husband, John Rand Agosta, in a cul-de-sac across from the campus.
The apparent homicide was Irvine's first since 2009. Irvine has statistically ranked as the safest large city in America for the past seven years, based on FBI crime data covering communities with more than 100,000 residents.
I figure there are two possibilities. Either he was a legitimate gun owner who went bad, something the gun-rights folks keep trying to say is extremely rare, or he was a guy who couldn't own a gun legally but had no trouble getting one anyway. This goes back to the lawful gun owners since they are the source af nearly all guns used in crime.
So, there's no escape. People who want lax gun laws in order to save themselves a bit of inconvenience and expense, must accept responsibility for the results of those lax or non-existent laws.
