“A woman’s ex-boyfriend forced his way into her apartment and fatally stabbed her and her two children before being critically injured in a knife fight with her current boyfriend,” abcnews.go.com reports. “Officers were called to the sprawling apartment complex on the north side of Columbus just before 1:30 a.m. and found the woman and children already dead and the two men with stab wounds, police Sgt. Rich Weiner said.” What else do you need to know? Not much, except this recap . . .
Erveena Hammonds’ ex-boyfriend, 35-year-old Wendell Louis Callahan [above], arrived at the apartment, forced his way in and killed her and the children before her current boyfriend, Curtis Miller, showed up and the two men scuffled, Weiner said.”
I find it hard to believe that people don’t keep a gun for self-defense. Because it’s more likely someone will use it to commit suicide or a child will hurt themselves or someone else with a negligent discharge?
If you’re not suicidal or irresponsible, why is that a concern? If you can drive yourself down the road, why would you believe you are too irresponsible or irrational to own a firearm? And you do have that concern, can you please not interfere with those of us who don’t? And if you feel you must, please address you concerns to the family and friends of the deceased above. Thanks.
