Editorial: Close the loophole on domestic violence

A tear rolls down Merry Jackson’s cheek as she talks with reporters at the Legislative Office Building before speaking at a public hearing by the Judiciary Committee on three proposed bills concerning guns on March 10, 2015. Jackson's daughter, Lori Jackson Gellatly, was shot and killed in Oxford by her estranged husband, Scott Gellatly, on May 7, 2014, the day before the couple was due in court for a hearing on a restraining order. Merry Jackson was also shot four times in the incident, but survived. Jackson's daughter, Kacey Mason, is at right.
