The carnage continues, this time in Alabama:
Two women and their children were shot to death this morning at a Greenhill residence, according to friends of the victims’ family.
Identities of the victims have not been released by law enforcement officials, but they have confirmed four people are dead.
Family friends say the victims are Tammy Garner, 40, and her 16-year-old daughter, Chelsie Garner.
Several law enforcement agencies are searching for a Morgan County man who Lauderdale County sheriff’s investigators say is a “person of interest” in the case. Kevin Garner, 45, is the husband of Tammy Garner and father of Chelsie, a junior at Rogers High School.
Also killed were Kevin Garner’s sister and 11-year-old nephew, family friends told the TimesDaily.
What does it say about us as a society when our way of dealing with things like divorce involves shooting our loved ones? The second amendment crowd is quick to jump and say “don’t blame us”, but it will get to a point soon where we will have to take action, and that may very well be the same kind of action Australia took a few years ago – take all the guns.
Instead of people being divided on this issue and worrying about their own interests, we need unity now more than ever as a nation. This is nothing short of an epidemic and a cure must be found.
