What The 2 Deadliest Mass Shootings This Year Have In Common Huffington Post

Both involved men allegedly targeting their estranged wives as the women attempted to move on.

On Sunday, 27-year-old Meredith Hight invited a group of friends over to her house in Plano, Texas, to watch football and grill. A few months earlier, she had filed for divorce from her husband, and she was looking forward to new beginnings.

According to the Plano Police Department, Hightís estranged husband, Spencer Hight, opened fire on Hight and her friends around 8 p.m. When officers arrived at the residence after reports of gunshots, they found seven people fatally shot and two others injured. One person died later in the hospital.

In May, Sheena Godbolt was at her motherís house in rural Mississippi, also having a cookout and enjoying time with her family. She had left her husband, Willie Cory Godbolt, a few weeks earlier. He showed up at the house, and allegedly opened fire, killing her mother, her older sister and aunt, and a deputy who responded to the scene. He then drove to two other houses where he allegedly killed other members of his wifeís family. By the end of the night, eight people were dead. He is currently awaiting trial.

1. "By the end of the night, eight people were dead."

And I had not heard of this event until reading this article.

And yes, if it had been in a movie theater, it would have made national news.

2. Relieved That The Common Thing Was Not A Gun

 

The NRA and it's members would have had a sad.
