Miami father kills young son, himself in shooting rampage

The father of four who went on a shooting rampage in the family’s Miami home was once known for a more uplifting reason – his love of aviation and hot-air ballooning.

Carlos Zuniga, 45, took his own life Wednesday night after shooting his wife, Michelle, 43, and children Lauren, 14, and Stefan, 11.

Stefan died Thursday. Lauren and her mother remain in critical condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital....


Carlos Zuniga recently had started working as an aviation safety inspector at the Federal Aviation Administration. The FAA recently announced it would have to make major cuts – including furloughs for employees – under federal sequestration.

2. If there was no gun in that home, no one there would be dead of gunshots.

No one would be gravely injured with gunshot wounds.

6. You sure have to work harder without a gun

Even a teenager can kill a dozen people with the right gun. Knives and bare hands? Not so much. China has mass slashing attacks but there are seldom as many fatalities. Their people aren't less crazy than us but their gun laws are.
