Whose son suicided with her gun. She blamed depression and alchohol, but does not question the gun at all. She is a "pry it out of my cold dead hands" humper still.

Very sad story.


Remember folks: a gun is 30-40 times more likely to be used in a suicidal shooting, an accidental shooting, or a shooting during a domestic disturbance, than to be used to shoot a criminal attacker.

The best way to protect yourself and your family is to get rid of any guns in your possession or in your home.
