Gun control advocates say domestic violence is common thread in recent mass shootings

Slightly more than half the mass shootings that happened between 2009 and 2016 had a relationship to domestic violence

The tie between domestic violence and the Sutherland Springs church shooting is not an isolated linkage in Texas, domestic violence advocates said this morning.
