Nice....wrong butt, nice. Lets see, there are TO MANY GUNS in circulation to enforce the 7000 gun laws on the books. There is nothing better than guns and drugs to keep the prison systems being filled to overflowing. Basically, any person hell bent on destruction cant purchase a weapon legally, WILL go underground.

Details emerge about family in Denver shooting that left 3 dead

A woman and two children were found dead in a Denver home Wednesday. One child was taken to a hospital. Irene Nuñez, a cousin, identified them as Mayra Perez, 23, her daughter, Nevaeh Morales, 2, and son, Erick Perez, 1. Daughter, Isabel, 2, is the survivor.

Mayra Perez called her mother Tuesday night to get a recipe for gorditas. She also quarreled with her husband, who left for the night to cool off.

By early morning, Perez and two of her children were dead, a third was in critical condition and her relatives were struggling to understand what happened in the family's northeast Denver home.

"I got a phone call at 7 a.m.," said Perez's sister, Liliana Castro.

It was her sister's husband, Ricky Perez, who told her he had found the bodies when he returned home Wednesday morning.

"He just told me he needed to tell me something, but he didn't know how to say it," Castro said. "I asked him,'What happened?' He's like,'I don't know, I don't know.' He couldn't talk. He

just hung up."

Denver police officers were called to the home in the 4900 block of Pearl Street at 6:55 a.m. for reports of a shooting. Officials did not identify the people whom officers found dead inside, but relatives said they were Perez, 22; her daughter, Nevaeh Morales, 6; and son, Erick Perez, 2.

A third child, Isabel Perez, 3, underwent surgery at Denver Health Medical Center, where police Cmdr. Ronald Saunier said she was in "extremely critical condition."

Ricky Perez and other relatives were with her at the hospital Wednesday night, Castro said.

Police had made no arrests and had "no reason to suspect a killer is on the loose," police spokesman Lt. Matt Murray said earlier in the day.

"At this time, we're not looking for any suspects," Saunier said later Wednesday. He would not elaborate, but said, "We have some questions we still need to answer.... We still need to complete the investigation."

Ok, Bareassss2602 you can regurgitate all the stories and stats that makes you feel important. Most news is one sided, inaccurate and false, the whole story is never told. Think B, the Govt, states and counties are desperate for tax money. The more laws, the more revenue, not rocket science. The more laws, the more lawyers and judges needed to interpret and defend complicated and corrupt institutional bureaucracy."In God We Trust" ans "In Greed We Will Fall".......Later.

Here's another man buys gun to save family story:
ALCOA — Alcoa authorities say it appears a 47-year-old man shot his 39-year-old live-in girlfriend and her 18-year-old son to death Sunday night before killing himself.
The dead are identified this afternoon as alleged gunman Amos L. Turbyfill, Stacy L. Wade and her son Joshua J. Demetri, according to a release from the Alcoa Police Department.
The reason for the killings remains under investigation.
The three lived together in a home at 813 Maple St. Police responded at 8:41 p.m. Sunday to a report of a shooting at the home.
Neighbor David Hammontree said Turbyfill and Wade had lived there with the teen for a number of years.
"They kept to themselves," he said. "The only time I saw them is when they'd wave when they were going down the alley."
You really don't have a job do you bareass? I was just taking a shot at the queen comment but damn, all you can do is spew your sick gay fantasies and recaps from last night. What a pathetic POS you truly are! Please post the all the stories where the shooter used one of those magazine fed rifles which scares you sooooooo much......That is right, they did not use one they used handguns. You cannot fix stupid, which is what occurred with anyone letting their child play with a gun and you damn sure cannot fix evil which is what your stories point to. Are you saying it would have been better is the killers had used a butcher knife to stab them to death or a baseball bat to beat them to death? Those two items are used many more times each year to kill someone than a gun you fool! What makes you think taking away guns will make you or anyone any safer? Just check out the actual statistics in England, Australia, Mexico, hell any of the other countries who traded their liberty for the “safety” their communist politicians promised. Other than the occasional mass shooting, their crime rates are out of control! Assaults, stabbings, rapes, robberies, home invasions……..all have increase since they banned guns from their law abiding citizens but the criminals still have guns. Those are the facts bareass but you will of course make some sick gay comment and claim it is a lie. What makes you think you or your POS POTUS or these POS Gov’s have the right to tell me or any other American they cannot have a gun? They don’t dipshit! It takes a vote of the people, 3/4ths of the states to be precise, to ratify any change, revision, deletion, modification or restriction of the US Constitution and any of the amendments! So, why don’t you put on your moo moo and slippers, get on your hoveround , get out of your subsidized apartment and see that life is not safe, fair or able to be controlled. I know you are on overload from eating all that your marxist messiah odumbass is spewing into your mouth but take a break from your liberal protein injection and try to live in the real world for once in your miserable little life. Life is what you make it, not what someone gives to you. All you little libtards seem so intent and fixated on controlling everyone else because you are so scared that someone might get you or you won’t get all you think you deserve. Here a fact for you, this country did not get to be the greatest place this world has ever seen by following any of obama’s communist wet dreams. Facts show, every country in the last 300 years that followed your mangod obama’s policies has failed! Why don’t you worry about yourself and realize if obama’s goals come to pass, your fat infected ass will be given the pill just like he wants to do for grandma.

It isn't hard to find stories of husbands killing their wives with the guns they say they bought for keeping their family safe because it happens every single day, several times a day.

What bubbles to the top are the ones where one of your fellow gun gnutters taking out the entire family... which happens several times a week, every week.

Here's some of the stuff people have to put up with with concealed carriers:

BEND, Ore.(AP)— A Bend woman accidentally shot her husband when her Derringer fell out of her pocket, hit the floor and fired.

KTVZ reports it happened Thursday at a McDonald's restaurant, and about 15 other customers who were inside at the time were startled by the gunfire.

Lt. Chris Carney says 47-year-old Richard Lee Cooper and 48-year-old Barbara Annette Masters were in the dining area when she leaned forward and the gun hit the floor. The impact caused the .22-caliber gun to fire, hitting Cooper in the abdomen. He was taken to St. Charles-Bend hospital in serious condition.

I would say the need to buy a better quality gun! I would recommend a ruger or my favorite a sig sauer! They don't fire until you pull the trigger. If you need anymore advice on the type of pistol you should buy, please feel free to ask me.
