The way you wrote it, it sounds like you were saying they murdered three different people.

Here's a link to the story, but only one person was shot & killed:
We, Dumbo doesn't like to be confined to the facts.

Here's another case:

Southland Shopping Center in Toledo was found dead in a Maumee home just after Maumee SWAT team stormed the home at 1145 Kirk St.

Officers had attempted negotiations with the man at the home in the 1100 block of Kirk Street but then fired off a couple rounds of tear gas. Police said the man, Jashua J. Perz, 30, of the Kirk Street address, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Toledo police received a call at 11:34 a.m. from a woman who said someone was shooting at her while she was in her car in the area of South Byrne Road at Glendale Avenue.

Shortly after the call, she was shot, police said. The victim, Kaitlin Gerber, 20, of Toledo, was pronounced dead at the scene.

It seems that a day doesn't go by when there isn't another murder suicide- man and wife, or man and wife and a kid or two.

If outlawing guns is to ever to be said to have stopped mass-murder, or even a single murder, then I'd like to know why it was that in the former Soviet Union that over 54 million DISARMED innocent people were murdered at the hands of the their 'government,' and how it was that over 20 million DISARMED PEOPLE were murdered under the government of Adolph Hitler.
Too, how would it have been the OVER 80 million were MURDERED at the hands of Chairman Mao in China, and OVER 300 thousand were MURDERED at the hands of Pol Pot, in Cambodia?
If so-called 'gun-control' is to be any kind of panacea, then WHY has SO MUCH DEATH resulted as a result of that 'control?'

Made-up numbers are fun, eh, tea bagger?

PS: Germany was the most heavily (civilian) armed country in Europe and it was Eisenhower that disarmed Germany after the war.

Evidence.
"As funky cases go, the prosecution of George Zimmerman is right up there. And while funky may give us something to talk about, it isn’t justice.
A decent legal system would forbid what’s going on in Florida, but then a decent legal system would never have tolerated murder charges against George Zimmerman in the first place."

But the citizens in the occupied nations were disarmed, right? Poland alone had a population of 34 million people.

I am making a dispassionate plea for the legalization of home ownership of
atomic weapons, based on the freedom to bear arms; the fact that that all
radioactive substances are well contained within the bomb casing itself
(i.e. no leakage); the obvious fact that it's not bombs that kill people,
but bombers; and the need for escalation in the war of protection.
I do not want to appeal to yours sense of charity or goodwill; these have
always been besides the point. Humans were meant to carry weapons;
the first tools of man and woman were hand-axes for smiting the enemy,
and, were it not for these tools, the most intelligent of our species
might already have been killed, tortured, maimed. It is weapons, in other
words, that keep us free, giving us the ability to say whatever we please.
And as it has been pointed out, over and over again, if it were not for
people like me, the rest of you would be enslaved forever.
Private ownership of atomic weaponry in the United States would give us a
competitive edge on others who would take away our freedom! And we cannot
assume our armed forces will protect us everywhere in this huge land of
ours; the dispersion of weaponry would ensure that we could fight along
with them, tooth and nail. It was Darwin who pointed out that the strongest
among us are those with the will to survive, acquiring atomic weaponry
at almost any cost, as guaranteed in our Declaration of Independence
(last part, near the signatures).
Remember: It is bombers who kill, not bombs. There is no reason whatsoever,
logical or illogical, that advanced weapons should not be made
available to the general public. The number of bombs in the entire United
States probably amounts to about four or five demented individuals, who
could not afford even a handgun, much less something on the order of
100,000 kilotons. So I urge you: Write your congressman (forget the women)
or better yet: write the United Nations (United Nations, 1 United Nations
Plaza, New York City). If we all do this, both buyers and sellers will
emerge out of the darkness, and our government will capitulate to, what
after all, is our right and our inheritance.
I could not agree more.

It should be named " Volksbomb "
