Soccer mom Meleanie Hain, who made national headlines last year by having a loaded, holstered handgun at her 5-year-old daughter's soccer game, has been found shot dead in her home along with her husband, police said Thursday....

The Pennsylvania soccer mom was chatting with a friend via webcam when she was shot to death by her husband, who then went upstairs and shot himself, police said Friday....

Unfortunately, those that live by the sword have a tendency to die by the sword.

It is better to promote compassion and empathy than a gun.

This controversial mom used to go to soccer events packing a gun in plain sight. She was adopted by gun nuts as a kind of patron saint for the right to carry hand guns anywhere and everywhere in the US.

Carrying guns is not the solution to a disturbed, sick, and messed up country. People get killed. In the case of the death of the gun toting soccer mom and dad, there are 3 kids without parents.

The solution is for adults to start caring for their neighbors and to stand up for human rights by peaceful and purposeful action.

Or you can carry a gun and think you are protecting yourself. But we live in a society and the best protection is found in protecting each other by being good and caring citizens.

"I know you may say that I am a dreamer, but I am not the only one".... I think Jesus would have wanted us to treat others with Love and Compassion. So put away your guns and pick up the Holy Spirit of Love.

It will be better for everyone.
