Tragedy in Wake County NC

The News Observer reports on the wife who shot and killed her husband over another woman.
GARNER -- Police have charged a wife with killing her husband early Saturday in the recreational vehicle in which they were living.

Police say Ruby Ashworth Gonzalez, 59, called 911 shortly after 1 a.m. to report that she had shot her husband in their RV parked behind the former Staples store on Garner Station Boulevard.

Police found Abundio G. Gonzalez, 48, dead, apparently as a result of a single gunshot to the chest, according to a release from the Garner Police Department. Ruby Ashworth Gonzalez was arrested at the RV and has been charged with first-degree murder.

Police say the shooting was the result of an argument involving another woman, though they say they do not anticipate charging anyone else.

Here's what I say.

1. Too many guns.
2. Too much gun culture.
3. Guns are bad news for women.

What's your opinion? Please leave a comment.

  1. Sadly, this is the NRA vision for America.

    The NRA is fond of telling its adherents that they need guns to stave off hordes of criminals and/or to prevent black guys who are President from getting too uppity. But the reality is the gunloons tend to turn the guns on themselves, more often than not.

    BTW, up in the gunloon utopia of Alaska, Sarah Palin's hometown newspaper has essentially said it's ok to shoot and kill journalist Joe McGinniss.
