Familicide, the act of killing one's family, is more common among men than women and usually involves a gun, said Phillip Resnick, a psychiatry professor at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland.

What a horrible concept. If a man decides to kill himself, I guess that is his right. But why does he have to take his family along with him--his entire family, both wife and children--courtesy of a carefully-placed bullet or two or however many he decides he needs.
