From the Bellingham Herald: “The Bellingham man accused of fatally shooting his wife, who was a Bellingham elementary school principal, and their two pets Thursday morning may have admitted to killing his family in Twitter replies to the National Rifle Association, the President of the United States and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.”
Guns don’t kill people, people do. Guns just make it a lot easier. AR-15 makes it super easy.
I jsit killed my whole family, and i couldnt have done it without a gun! I’m too much of a coward, a knife would have been waaay too hard. So, thanks to everyone at the NRA,

Kevin Heimsoth is suspected of murdering his wife Lynn (with a handgun), their therapy dog and a cat, then attempting to commit suicide with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He’s now in a local hospital.
While the Twitter account belonging to Kevin Heimsoth could not be verified by The Bellingham Herald or others at McClatchy, a number ofaspects point to it belonging to Kevin Heimsoth: The account is associated with email accounts and phone numbers that belong to him; the account associated with Lynn Heimsoth followed this account; she retweeted the account at least once.
The Twitter account that may have belonged to Kevin Heimsoth sent a series of four reply tweets shortly after 3 a.m. on Dec. 26 stating that the user shot and killed their wife and their dog.
According to the Daily Mail, Heimsoth then duplicated the same message, tweeting President Trump and Senate Majority Leader McConnell.
Heimsoth was apparently no fan of Trump, McConnell or the NRA.
