    Thank you for honoring Jennifer. These horrible gun crimes seem like they’re getting closer and closer to home, and this one happened in the town where I live. My mother-in-law was close enough she was part of the area canvassed by police the day it happened. And, the more we learn about her murder, the more it illustrates how she was failed on multiple levels. She told coworkers that her husband had threatened her with a gun to her head. As an injured combat vet, somewhere the military and VA has failed her husband, and thus her. I just keep hoping eventually, 1 of these crimes will finally be the tipping point, and we’ll see change.
