    in the number of women murdered by their partners each year.  We had a guy shoot up a bingo hall last week here, blew his girlfriend's head off with a shotgun and put the gun in his mouth when the cops arrive.   My daughter knew both of them.

    The nearest women's shelter is 45 miles away and what is the first thing abusers remove from their victims?  Their mobility by either taking vehicles, disabling them or reporting them as stolen should a victim take one.  How do you get 45 miles away with no vehicle.  Now it appears that shelter is closing so the next nearest is 98 miles away in another state.  Guess the GOP is telling abused women, "lotsa luck with your situation"
