Christy Sheats was a vocal second amendment advocate. She recently shot and killed her two daughters before being shot and killed by a police officer. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
"At around 5 p.m., officers started receiving 911 calls about shots fired in the city of Fulshear, just west of Houston, the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office wrote on Facebook.
When they arrived on the scene, they found Madison Sheats, 17, and her 22-year-old sister, Taylor, had been shot.
Madison died on the street, while Taylor was flown to a hospital, where she also died...
The girls’ mother, Christy Sheats, 42, was also in the street and, after refusing to drop her weapon, was shot and killed by a Fulshear officer, the sheriff’s office said.
“Our officer was forced to take action,” the Fulshear Police Department wrote onFacebook, without identifying the officer involved. “He was not injured and no deputies were injured.”
“This was a tragic and unfortunate occurrence and we are deeply saddened by the results,” police added...
“It would be horribly tragic if my ability to protect myself or my family were to be taken away,” she wrote in March, “but that’s exactly what Democrats are determined to do by banning semi-automatic handguns.””*
