Travis Spitler was barred by law from buying a gun, but he easily found a way around the restriction.
Spitler connected with a private seller and lied about his background, which included an open domestic violence case in Arizona and a domestic protective order filed against him.
And just like that, Spitler purchased the .357-caliber revolver he used to kill his ex-girlfriend, Christina Franklin, and wound her two children before turning the gun on himself.
SHP proudly supports Nevada's background check initiative, Question 1, to keep children and families safer from gun violence.
