Alcorn County authorities say an 11-year-old boy they believe was shot by his father in a murder-suicide has died at a Memphis hospital.Some of the really biased gun defenders would say ole Billy Loyd was perfectly within his rights to take his own life, but even they would draw the line at taking the boy with him - at least I hope so.
Authorities found the boy with his father in an apartment in Farmington. Fifty-one-year-old Billy Loyd Jr. was dead and his son was wounded. The boy was sent to the Memphis hospital.
Authorities say Loyd had posted on Facebook that he was in financial trouble, feared he would be evicted and his son taken from him.
I say that Billy was an unfit gun owner, like so many. His thinking was not healthy enough to safely own and use guns, like so many. He was a danger to himself and others, like so many.
