Steven Jon Colegrove, 36, of Wausau, WI, got into an argument with his wife last night.  His wife called the police; Steven was arrested and posted bail.  He returned to his house, and from there he sent a text to his wife that said, “I shot your dog.”  Police arrived, again, to find the dog in the bathtub, shot in the hind quarter.  Steven was arrested, again.

In the United States, people like Steven have a legal right to own a gun.  That’s so absurd it’s almost funny.

Tony Woods got mad at his estranged wife, Tammie, because she wouldn’t stay with him last night.  As she drove away, “he started firing shots at her.”  Tammie was pronounced dead at the scene.

Tony has a terminal illness.  Tammie, although separated from him, would go to his house to help him with groceries and however she could.  Often times, Tony didn’t want her to leave.  This time, he did not control his anger.

A 14-year-old boy is in serious condition in Fort Lauderdale, FL, after being shot multiple times yesterday by a man in his late 30’s to early 40’s.  According to police, an argument broke out between the man and the boy when the man pulled out a gun a started shooting.

A 14-year-old is not allowed to carry a gun.  So in this nation that promotes armed resistance, we, by law, put a very large portion of our citizenry in harms way.

How’s that for morality?
