I have information concerning the matter. In gun-friendly Louisiana, a guy with a history like this continues to own guns. Do you think the police went to his home to disarm him after his many disqualifying actions? I doubt it. In states like this, some things are more important than protecting the battered women.
THIBODAUX - A Napoleonville man walked into a bar and shot his estranged wife multiple times before turning the gun on himself Sunday morning, police said.
Gary Leblanc, 50, of Napleonville, walked into Lakeview Inn Bar at Attakapas Landing at about 12:08 a.m. and shot his estranged wife, Jennifer Leblanc, 44, of Napoleonville multiple times before he shot himself, police said.
Officials from the Assumption Parish Sheriff's Department documented previous incidents between the couple that led to to the shooting. On Oct. 3, Leblanc was arrested for simple battery after deputies determined that he struck his wife in the face during an argument.
On Jan. 24, Jennifer filed a report that Leblanc shot her dog in July. He was arrested on Feb. 9 for illegal use of a weapon and aggravated cruelty to an animal.
On Jan. 27, Jennifer obtained a protective order against Leblanc. The order was to remain in effect until January 20, 2011.
Anyone with information concerning this matter is asked to contact the Criminal Investigation Division.
