I am so tired of hearing these sad stories of someone just snapping and senselessly killing!
5pm on Friday Christy Sheats called a family meeting with her daughters and husband. During this family meeting she got into an argument with her husband and pulled out a gun. She started shooting killing her daughter Madison, her husband Jason and other daughter Taylor were able to run out the door. Christy followed after them shooting Taylor again then running back in the house reloaded and shot Taylor again. Jason (husband) was able to make it down the street without an injury. Cops witnessed Christy shooting Taylor and ordered her to drop her handgun and when she refused they shot and killed her. Taylor was airlifted to a hospital where she died from the gunshot wounds.
I can’t even imagine what the husband is going through. Questions that I have now are could this have been prevented? Where there signs that Christy was suffering from some kind of depression or mental illness? In the article it talks about the cops being called to the Sheats residence 14 times! A 3rd party called the police to do a welfare check because the couple was having a bad argument! So I believe it’s safe to assume that there were some kind of signs that there were obviously problems!
This is one of the reasons why gun laws need to be stricter and background checks need to be more intense! An assault rifle might not have been used in this instinct but that IS still an issue! I’m going to leave you with a quote from Mrs. Christy Sheats Facebook….
“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”
Please ponder on that! She really “protected” her family!
