Veronica Rutledge’s family are more interested in defending her right to carry the gun that ended her life and ruined the future of her two year old son than they are about the actual loss of life.
Sure, Veronica had the right to carry a gun. She also had the right to die and she did. But what about her son’s rights? He had no say in becoming the murderer of his own mother at the age of what? Two years old? 24 months old? Really?
Her husband also exercised his right to buy his wife a purse that was “made” for carrying guns. This was his christmas gift to her when they were both aware of their 2 year old living among them.
Now this two year old will grow up only to remember that he is the killer of his own mother.
Rutledge had a concealed weapons permit. Miller said the young boy was left in a shopping cart, reached into his mother’s purse and grabbed a small-calibre handgun, which discharged one time.
Deputies who responded to the Walmart found Rutledge dead, the sheriff’s office said.
This is not what Santa wanted. This is not what I meant by “peas on earth“.
Anyone who considers a gun purse for a mother of a two year old a nice Christmas gift needs to have their heads examined.
Humans! Please evolve and TRY to find interest in hobbies that are less violent, please. Try knitting for a week. Try yoga! Have any of you down south ever considered tea tasting or an organic cleanse? Guns are not toys. Guns do not have happy endings. Guns are not biodegradable.
