Mum’s Eerie Facebook Post Before Shooting Daughters Dead
A Texas mother who shot and killed her two daughters posted to Facebook about her right to own a gun just months earlier.
After a family dispute spilled out onto the street in front of their home, Christy Sheats shot daughters Madison, 17 and Taylor, 22.
It’s reported her husband, Jason, begged her not to, as he watched the scene unfold on his birthday.

Police who arrived at the scene, shot and killed the mother after she refused to lower her weapon.
According to ABC13, the two daughters were already injured when they ran out of the home with their father.
An eyewitness said Taylor collapsed on the street while Christy came outside with a gun before going back in to reload. On her return she shot Madison in the back.

Just months earlier, the 42-year-old took to Facebook to share her pro-gun views.
“It would be horribly tragic if my ability to protect myself or my family were to be taken away, but that’s exactly what Democrats are determined to do by banning semiautomatic weapons,” she wrote in March.
It wasn’t the first time she’d shared her views on the right to bear arms.
At the beginning of the year she once again took aim writing, “I have 10 guns. Obama wants eight of my guns. How many guns do I have? That’s right, I have 10 guns”.
