Domestic Violence in Kansas City - She's Critical, He's Dead

ESPN news reports

A man shot and wounded a female parking lot employee Friday between the stadiums that are home to the Kansas City Chiefs and Royals before killing himself, police said.

Graves said the woman was taken to a hospital in critical condition. Officers found the man in a car, dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot. Both were in their 40s and knew each other, but police did not elaborate on their relationship. 

Witnesses said the man drove into the area in a silver Cadillac, several shots were fired and the man then turned the gun on himself in the car.
Often in these domestic shootings the guy kills the girl and only wounds himself. I don't know which is worse.

One thing for sure, when it comes to relationships, guns are bad news for women.

What's your opinion?  Please leave a comment.


  1. "Domestic" means living together. Once again, you're going beyond the available facts.

  2. When it comes to relationships, violent men are bad news for women. Women who promptly leave or tell such men to get lost at the first sign of violence will serve themselves well. And those women should be armed in case their ex shows up again. In that situation guns are great news for women.

    And if we are really serious about looking out for women's interests, we should guarantee that:
    (a) Wiretapping laws will not criminalize women who secretly record their ex husband's/boyfriend's threats irrespective of the communication medium or location/state.
    (b) Laws will exist that make it easy for prosecutors to imprison (for a very long time) ex husbands/boyfriends that terrorize their ex wives/girlfriends.

    Combining all elements, my solution will seriously reduce the number of domestic violence victims while simultaneously preserving the right of citizens to keep and bear arms for personal protection. I call that a win-win outcome.

    1. Why don't we lower the standards for what constitutes domestic abuse and disarm ever one of those assholes. That would save some female lives.
