Police say a husband and wife are dead in a murder-suicide shooting at a Las Vegas hospital.Maybe it was a mercy killing. Maybe it was mental illness. Who knows, maybe she was a battered wife. The only thing for certain is in the state of Nevada, anyone who wants to use a gun has no trouble getting one. And their crime rate and murder stats prove it.
Lt. Dan Coe says the woman shot the man and then turned the gun on herself a little before 5 a.m. in a room on the fourth floor of Valley Hospital.
Police say the 55-year-old man was a patient at the hospital and had been there since August 10 with a deteriorating illness and an unknown mental condition. The woman had been staying the night in the man's room.
What's your opinion? Is the gun availability and easy access in Nevada part of the problem? Or should they be the model for the rest of the country? The Brady Campaign gave them zero stars and only 9 points out of 100.
