  •  My brother-in-law, a cab driver, (7+ / 0-)

    was shot in the back of his head in his cab. No one knew why. No suspect was ever arrested. It wasn't robbery because his cash was still there.

    My niece was shot and killed in her sleep by her boyfriend in a murder-suicide. No one knew why, and no one knew he had a gun. They had  come home from an earlier party celebrating her new promotion.

    It's senseless and it's sickening.

    My heart and wishes go out to you and your family. The big screaming internal why never goes away.

    Oh, I used to be disgusted
    Now I try to be amused

      I am horrified by your double loss.  There's an internet meme that talks about "one failed shoe bombing and we all go barefoot in airports."  

      A lot of people are counting on our fear to reject a sane gun policy.   (as well as sane policies on many things)

      Justice For Will Will spent his brief, courageous life fighting for the rights we all take for granted. Please share his story to support the fight!
