After domestic violence arrest, suspect kills 3

http://www.cnn.com/2012/10/21/us/wisconsin-shooting/index.html?hpt=us_c2

Seventeen days ago, Radcliffe Haughton allegedly slashed his wife's tires outside a suburban Milwaukee salon.
Three days ago, the 45-year-old man was issued a restraining order mandating that he stay away from her for the next four years.
And now he is dead.
But not before, police say, Haughton gunned down seven women -- killing three of them -- inside the same Azana Salon and Spa in Brookfield, while also using flammable liquid to fuel a fire.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Criminals are bad for women and those around them.

Thoughts and prayers for the victims families.


BTW: I carried my P229 40 when I was in the salon this weekend. I love fall and winter, it allows the concealment of more capable sidearm safety device.

1. If the victims were armed they wouldve had a chance to defend themselves.

I think all women should get their permits and carry a small gun with them.

2. I advise victims of domestic abuse

 

to apply for a CC permit and learn how to use a gun, at least it gives them a fighting chance.

4. If you have a restraining order out on someone else

 

that ought to put a defacto priority on any gun license you're applying for.

5. It should, I agree

 

Unfortunately, it doesn't. Now here in MO, if there is an Order of Protection against someone, we'll confiscate any firearms they may have and their name goes into a database of temporarily prohibited persons until the case is settled, then, depending upon the outcome of the case, we'll either return them or dispose of them.
However, this doesn't stop someone from just either borrowing a gun or buying one from a private party or, just using a different weapon, like a knife or a baseball bat, or even running the victim down with a vehicle.
Someone enraged enough to kill is going to find a way to do so, gun or not.

6. "we'll either return them or dispose of them."

In what manner are they disposed? Does the previous owner receive compensation for them?

7. I believe, and I'm not sure

 

but I believe we'll sell them to the public, as far as compensation, I'll have to look into that. I don't go back to work until next week.
I'll find out and let you know.

3. Criminals are bad for people.

 

More men than women will be the victims of violent crime.
