Domestic Murder in Detroit
Edited on Wed Dec-07-11 03:47 AM by mikeb302000
The Detroit Free Press reports on yet another story which illustrates the basic truth that guns are bad news for women and children. Usually we're talking about kids that get shot or who shoot other kids, but what about the survivors?

"The alleged facts in this case are tragic on so many levels: An 11-year-old child losing her mother at the hands of her surviving parent, is an all too familiar end when a family is in distress," Prosecutor Kym Worthy said in a news release Monday afternoon.

1. Would it have been any less tragic if the kid's mother got stabbed to death?
People who are intent on murder will always find a way.

The particular weapon/tool used to commit the murder really is irrelevant.

5. that's wrong
the gun is more likely to kill than the other frequently used "tools." Remove the guns and fewer people die. Why would you oppose that?

9. NOBODY opposes fewer people dieing but you are simply wrong
in saying that if you remove the tool fewer people will die. They will find a way.

6. the tragedy is in the desperation leading to the act. The tool used is not the tragedy.

8. Would have been ok if she had been stabbed, blugeoned, drowned
strangled or any other dozens of ways to kill someone but those would not fit your anti-gun zealotry, your agenda.

Usual BS including your blind links to your blog. If you want someone to read your crap, post it here instead of hiding it.
