If Only Obama Had Taken Her Guns

Her daughters would still be around for another Daughter's Day.

On September 25, 2015, Texas mom Christy Sheats wrote a tribute to her two daughters, aged 17 and 22 on her Facebook wall.

Today Friday, she shot them both dead.

When the police arrived, they shot Christy Sheats after determining that she had shot both of her daughters in the street after a family argument.

In March, Christy Sheats wrote about her fears that Obama would take away her guns.

"It would be horribly tragic if my ability to protect myself or my family were to be taken away," she wrote, "but that's exactly what Democrats are determined to do by banning semi-automatic handguns."

She posted that comment above a video posted by 911Stong, run by a "God-fearing family man who is a Southern California Police Officer and University Professor," according to that Facebook page.

Here's another one of Christy Sheats' posts from January. Clearly the whole gun issue resonated.

I cannot help thinking today that three people would still be alive, including two lovely young women who were just embarking on their lives together if only Obama had taken her guns.

It's terribly tragic that he didn't. And also disturbing.
