Handgun Killer Takes 10 Lives In Alabama

March 10, 2009

Ten more die from a handgun.  Though the story below states that there are eight dead due to this act of handgun violence, the actual number is 10 fatalities.

Needless.  When does it stop?  When do we say there are too many handguns in society?  When do we admit that everyone does not need a gun, and fewer should have a right to a gun?

Eight people including the suspected gunman were killed in a shooting spree in southern Alabama on Tuesday, police said.

Two of the dead were the wife and child of a deputy sheriff from Geneva, Alabama, a small town near the border with Florida in the southeastern United States.

“Five were killed in a trailer in Samson. Two more died in the Big and Little Store in Geneva. The suspect died in the Reliable store in Geneva. It is uncertain whether he killed himself or was killed by one of the sheriffs,” said a police officer in Geneva who declined to give her name.

“He shot at several vehicles on the highway and then he shot at Wal-Mart and Piggly Wiggly in Geneva,” said the officer. Wal-Mart is the biggest superstore in the United States. Piggly Wiggly is a grocery chain.

Several people were also wounded during the spree, according to local media reports.

Samson is a town of around 3,000 near Alabama’s border with Florida

    It is in deed a tragety for the families & my prayers are with them. However it is typical of liberals to put the blame on firearms. As always the actions of a few, affect the rights of the may (10’s of millions) Of course you won’t place any blame on society or the lack or morals, ethics & common sense. If firearms are taken from everyone (Don’t think so) who would be able to defend their first amendment rights. You say that is far fetched. Look at Germany late 1930’s. Look at history. I believe that the law makers that want to ban them ought to have the balls to try & come & take them. Don’t see that happening.

    I think that very FEW, that posess and own GUNS, act like this, in a violent manner. The Federal Guidelines check people for their capacities to own a firearm. Our Second Amendment SHOULD NOT even be brought up by the negligence acts of just a few. If Guns were ever to be banned, then only the “Die Hard Criminals” would have them. Are you people to IGNORANT, to realize, that if a person wanted to, they could just buy the guns from the “Bad Guys”. Gun Owners are Good People, that are Law Abiding, Stand Up Citizens. You wacky Liberals just want to “Play Up” a few instances, to promote your “CRAPPY AGENDA”!
