"A recent study found that more than half of the 110 mass shootings in the United States between January 2009 and July 2014 included the murder of a current or former spouse, an intimate partner or a family member."

By stemming the issue of violence where it starts, at home, and responding properly and effectively to violence against women and children will make all people safer.
