Sad News: Pastor’s Wife Commits Suicide in Texas Gun Store Parking Lot

The wife of a Texas pastor reportedly took her own life this weekend in the parking lot of McClelland Gun Shop, located in East Dallas, Texas, presumably using the pistol she had just purchased from the firearms supplier, according to reports.

Harriet Deison, 65, wife of Pastor Pete Deison of Park Cities Presbyterian Church, was found dead in her Lexus Sedan after employees of McClelland Gun Shop heard gunfire around 2:15 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 29. It appeared as though Deison shot herself. Authorities are reporting that Deison took her own life, although no suicide note was left at the scene of the shooting.

Dallas police Sgt. Shelley Johnston has said, according to The Dallas Morning News, that the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives plans to send an investigator to McClelland Gun Shop early this week to ensure all legal procedures were followed for the gun purchased by Deison.

Deison is survived by her husband, two children, and five grandchildren.

    General consensus with the rest of the falimy is that the more they try to protect their child by shielding him from the world, the harder time he’ll have when he finally goes out into the world without their protection.At over 5 years of age, I still believe they haven’t let him have a sleepover at his grandparents house. They don’t think he’d handle it well. And they only live two miles away. :-)But that’s another story for another blog post. I should keep it on topic of the original gun post.I’ve never owned a gun myself, but I used .22 rifles and 12 and 20 gauge shotguns a few times in my as a pre-teen and teen. I have fond memories of trap and skeet and target shooting. I want my kids to experience this, and not to be afraid of guns. I understand that there are gun clubs in the area that are very falimy friendly and I look forward to taking the falimy for lessons on gun safety and use. I think it will be a great experience for all. Maybe even take Grandma and Grandpa with us.So I appreciate the gun posts from both you and Glenn and some of the other bloggers. Happy New Year!
