Florida Mom Kills her Four Children and Herself The LA Times reports
The unmistakable sound of gunfire stirred the neighbors early Tuesday. Moments later, there was a knock at the front door.
They opened it to find three children from next door — at least one of them shot and wounded, authorities said. The neighbors called 911, grabbed a towel and tried to attend to the kids.
Then, the couple told deputies later, a calm voice in the darkness summoned the three children back to their home on Bright Avenue in Port St. John. It was their mother, 33-year-old Tonya Thomas.
The neighbors tried to stop the kids from returning home, according to Brevard County Sheriff's Lt. Tod Goodyear. But the kids walked back obediently. And once inside, Thomas apparently shot and killed them.
Sounds like another mentally ill lawful gun owner gone berserk. How many of these incidents do we need before something is done about it?
It should not be so easy to get a gun that people like Tonya Thomas can get one.
