Gun-Toting Soccer Mom, Husband Shot Dead

LEBANON, Pennsylvania —

A soccer mom who gained national attention when she openly carried a loaded gun to her 5-year-old daughter's game was shot dead Wednesday along with her husband in what appeared to be a murder-suicide, police said.



Meleanie Hain and Scott Hain were pronounced dead Wednesday night at their home in Lebanon, a small city about 80 miles west of Philadelphia.



The couple's three children were home at the time but weren't hurt, police said. They were taken to stay with friends and relatives.



Meleanie Hain, 31, and Scott Hain, 33, had been having marital problems for about a week, neighbor Mark Long said. Scott Hain had left the couple's home on Tuesday, and Meleanie Hain didn't know where he was, but he returned Wednesday, Long said.



Autopsies on the Hains were to be conducted Thursday, coroner Dr. Jeffrey Yocum said.



Meleanie Hain made headlines after she attended a children's soccer game in a park on Sept. 11, 2008, with a handgun in plain view holstered on her hip, upsetting other parents.



The county sheriff, Michael DeLeo, revoked her gun-carrying permit nine days later.



Hain successfully appealed the permit revocation, although the judge who restored the permit questioned her judgment and said she had "scared the devil" out of other people at the game.
But still let her have her permit back.



Hain sued DeLeo in federal court, alleging that he violated her constitutional rights and prosecuted her maliciously when he took the permit away. She said that because of his actions her baby-sitting service had suffered, her children had been harassed and she had been ostracized by her neighbors in Lebanon, which has about 25,000 residents.



DeLeo said at Hain's appeal that he revoked her permit after fielding the parents' complaints. He said he based his decision on a state law that prohibits certain gun permits from being given to anyone whose character and reputation make him or her a danger to public safety. Wow, do ya just think he may of known something and made the proper decision now ?



After Hain sued DeLeo, the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, which says it tries to reform the gun industry through sensible regulations, offered to defend him for free.



"It is a case that calls out for common sense," Brady Center attorney Daniel Vice said then. "It's ridiculous to bring a gun to a child's soccer game."

Yes, anyone with a little common sense would know this.

A court hearing on Hain's $1 million lawsuit was postponed in May after an attorney in the case was involved in a traffic accident.







Well, as mean as it sounds to say it, this problem resolved itself, I feel horribly sorry for the kids but at least the parents let them live as fucking selfish as they were.

So?



A friend of mine was threatened, verbally, by a cop, because his daughter seriously outperformed the cop's daughter at the game.



If the cop can bring his gun to the game, and of course he did, there's no reason anyone else can't bring theirs.



Yes, people commit suicide with guns. So what?

Clearly marriage causes murder-suicides and should be banned.

Marriages may occasionally be the reason for a murder-suicide but firearms are often the means to accomplishing that end.

The important issue revealed in the above article was what happened to the Nazi sheriff that revoked her gun carrying permit after she (gasp!!!!) carried her gun in public?

You mean carried her gun in public view at a children's soccer game which created a disturbance and resulted in the sheriff revoking her permit. Which must have been a wise decision since a week later she demonstrated her instability by committing a murder-suicide.
