PA Gun Owner Murders Wife and Wounds Himself

Lehigh Valley News reports on another "nice" family gone down the drain with gun violence
A child made a desperate call to 911 Tuesday night, after gunshots rang out in the family home. Now, the mother is dead and the father is in the hospital, about to be charged with murder.

The pro-gun folks keep trying to pretend this has nothing to do with them. The truth is it IS them.
The gun-friendly state of Pennsylvania makes it entirely too easy for unstable and irresponsible people to own guns.
