In 1993, Mrs. McCarthy’s husband and son were shot on a Long Island Railroad commuter train by one Colin Ferguson, who had bought a handgun (legally) in California and used it to make his feelings known

It’s not described on her website, so to read it you’ll have to go to here. It’s worth the effort, and you’ll never think of Hillary in quite the same way again.
