47. So you're saying he wouldn't have beat his wife to death with a
furniture leg if he hadn't had a gun? The kids were the easy ones to kill, he didn't need a gun.

"Does this illustrate the danger of having guns in the house?"

No, it dosen't. It illistrates how desperate and out of control people can get because of today's economy.

From the story: "It was the first murder since 1977 in Lewisboro, an upper-middle-class town of about 12,000 nestled among reservoirs and hills."

"But, the sad truth is guns in the home are more likely to be misused than to be used for self-defense."

Yup, no murders since 1977, Obvious proof you are correct, NOT.

Unrec for the usual reasons BUT no blind links. You are the king.
