Past violence against women - check.But if only guns were outlawed, all of those other issues wouldn't have manifested themselves, right?
Known problems in current relationship - check.
Drinking in the hours before shooting(s) - check.
Not much has been said about Belcher's early life, or any hardships he may have endured. His mother was living with him, helping out with the, now orphaned, child - so the couple could 'work things out'. This man had talent, money, family, support, and a good job - but chose violence.
I can name several people that have had a lifetime of heartache and hard times. People who have lost, suffered, been victimized, and trampled on. None of them turned to violence to solve their problems or deal with confrontations. Character, morality, and wisdom (or the lack thereof) have a valid place in this argument, yet no one brings it up.
