But in a few short years, she went on, the family's harmony dissolved into mistrust and recriminations, her parents separated, and Mary Koontz went to live in Florida. A year ago, after being gone for 19 months, she returned with a silver revolver and sneaked into her former home in Glen Arm while her estranged husband and daughter slept, prosecutors say. Once inside, they say, she shot her husband four times as he lay in bed and then went into Kelsey's room and fired at the girl. The bullet missed its mark.
Did you notice she used a gun? I suppose she could have used any number of tools, but she used the preferred killing instrument.
Where do you think it came from? Probably even a middle-aged mentally unstable woman could pick one up in gun-friendly Florida, don't you think?
So, in a reverse twist on the old theme, guns are still bad news for women.
