In Laredo, Texas a mother is dead after she shot her two children, ages 10 and 12, then apparently turned her gun on herself. This because she was desperate after being refused welfare aid.
Something horrible is wrong with this picture, especially in a country that once prided itself at being the richest nation in the world. A little compassion would have worked wonders. As opposed to being refused for not filling in all required information someone may have offered some help to correctly fill in the needed information. And how does a distraught person get their hand on a handgun? Don't we have laws in place that require people to wait until a background check is completed?
