Lois Oglesby, 27  was one of the 9 victims shot and killed in the Dayton, Ohio shooting along with the shooter's own sister, Megan Betts. Lois was a nursing student, mother of two who had just returned from maternity leave to resume her job at a children's daycare center.  She was very excited about her future nursing career and planned to work with children.

"She was a wonderful mother, a wonderful person," her cousin Derasha Merrett said. "I have cried so much, I can’t cry anymore.”

Quote

“We grew up as cousins,” Merrett said. “We grew up in the same church, on the same drill team. She works at my kids’ daycare. We all grew up in this little town. We’re all family. We’re all hurting behind this.”

Megan Betts, the 22-year-old sister of the gunman Connor Betts, was one of the first fatally shot.

I got from the article that the sister was Megan Betts, not Lois Oglesby.  Perhaps I read it wrong?  Still very sad, all of this senseless killing.

The shooter was Connor Betts. His sister was Megan Betts. Lois was another unfortunate victim. Of course that doesn't make the situation any less tragic.

What has happened over the weekend should NEVER happen again,  just like Parkland and Sandy Hook should have NEVER happened.

There are evil people every where, it will happen again...it's sickening but the reality of this world....there is no stopping it to be honest. Ban all the guns, ban what ever..but people will still do bad things as long as evil is in this world.

There will always be ' bad people. Loss of human life on this scale is unacceptable  , the fact that this continues to happen in this country, and is becoming a normal occurence, without efforts made to stop it is unreal. This does not happen in other countries on this scale.

Video games are blamed yet the world plays them.

Lack of God is to blame yet America is still one of the most religious countries.

Bad parenting is to blame yet every country clearly has bad parents.

Mental health is to blame yet every country has rising mental health issues.

Somewhere there is an underlying reason why other western societies don't have these issues, there must be something America does differently. Hmmm.

Drunk driving kills around 10,000 people a year in this country and is a normal occurrence despite laws made to stop it. The loss of human life on this scale is even more unacceptable.  My good friend was killed this way.  People who drink and drive are still allowed to own vehicles, it is not acceptable at all.  There is something more at work here besides the tools that are used to senselessly end life.  It makes me fearful for the younger generations.

But you're okay with the strict access to cars though right? you're okay that there are tests before you get to drive a car? Or we should just allow people to go in to a shop and buy a car and use it.
