Open Carry Texas and Open Carry Tarrant County supporter Veronica Dunnachie has been indicted for the double murder of her husband and her stepdaughter, according to

Arlington, Texas police advise that they have Veronica Dunnachie, 35, in custody after she drove herself to a mental hospital following the death of her husband and stepdaughter.

According to NBC-FW, the mother of four is in custody after Arlington Police responded to a residence Wednesday where they found 50-year-old Russell Dunnachie and his daughter, 20-year-old Kimberly Jo Dunnachie, dead. Veronica was subsequently taken into custody at the Millwood Hospital, an area mental health center.

Police confirm both that Dunnachie is facing capital murder charges and that her four minor children, three of whom are from Russell, are safe. The two were in the middle of a divorce.

Gun control advocates were quick to point out Thursday that Dunnachie is an apparent member of two open carry groups in the Arlington area, Open Carry Texas and Open Carry Tarrant County. A social media page believed to belong to Dunnachie shows numerous images of her at rallies for the groups and lists her as employed by a security company. Likewise, she is found in images maintained on both groups’ pages.

Citizen control groups and the political left are, of course, having a field day with the arrest.  They claim that Dunnachie’s arrest “proves” that Second Amendment activists are violence-prone.

The opposite is in fact true.

There are 100 million gun owners in the United States, and millions of them belong to Second Amendment groups. They are far more law-abiding that the average citizen, a fact that citizen control cultists religiously ignore.

The reality of the matter is that the vast majority of the violently mentally ill involved in the debate are on the side of gun control.

They often support gun control because that they are too mentally unstable to own and use firearms responsibly, and they project their deficiencies upon the rest of the world.

These mentally ill gun control extremists call for gun owners to be murdered for merely possessing firearms. They have called for tricking law enforcement into killing gun owners. Some have even been caught attempting to do precisely that.

A leader in Moms Demand Action was slapped with protective orders for threatening to murder her children… and she’s still a leader in the group. Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns could fill their own prison.

And we haven’t even touched upon the pathological lying that is stock-in-trade for all gun control groups, from their leaders on down. it is impossible for any of these groups to function if they dared to be honest.

Our hearts go out to the surviving children in this shattered family, and hope that they can be placed with a family that can give them the love and the support they need to recover from such a horrible trauma.
