Concord NC (near Charlotte) Domestic Violence at Work - 2 Dead

The Local Channel 5 News reports
A spokeswoman for Lowe's Home Improvement says an employee and another person have been shot to death at a North Carolina store.
Spokeswoman Karen Cobb says the shooting happened Monday at a store in Concord, which is about 20 miles northeast of Charlotte. She says it appears to be a domestic situation and no other customers or employees were injured.
Additional information was not immediately available.
With such few details available in the news, it could be anything. But, let's take a guess.
A lawful gun owner, perhaps with a CCW permit and an NRA membership card in his wallet, goes to his wife's place of employment, kills her and turns the gun on himself. How's that sound, about right?
Later today the details will be coming out and I know I can count on my antagonistic gun-rights friends to point out anything I got wrong, but even that wouldn't change the fact that guns are bad news for women. And it certainly wouldn't change the solution.
What's your opinion? Please leave a comment.
