Houston mom Christy Sheats was fond of sharing pro-gun memes on Facebook. Then she turned her gun on her own girls. And the GOP will say there’s nothing we can do.
“It would be horribly tragic if my ability to protect myself or my family were to be taken away, but that’s exactly what Democrats are determined to do by banning semi-automatic handguns.”

We'll said! I wish I was mature enough to not resort to sarcasm, but these threads have damn near ruined my ability to respond seriously.
Props for your maturity. Ya stupid poop head!
Madison Davey, a friend of the Sheats daughters, told KTRK-TV that the two girls were caught up in the troubled marriage of their parents. She said that Jason Sheats told her that Christy Sheats shot her daughters because she wanted him to suffer.
So tell me again why background checks should not be more in-depth?
Davey also said that the weapon used in the murders was passed down from Christy Sheats’ great-grandfather “to protect the family.”[/exneedit on 29-6-2016 by DAVID64 because: forgot to add the link

I'm as much for nationwide background checks and a national registration database as anyone, but, as sad and horrific and tragic as this story is: a) this crazy woman had a undeniable Constitutional right to own firearms and b) there's no way any system of regulation can predict when someone is going to lose their minds and kill their children.
Bit of false equivalency going on here, OP.
