  1. If the guns are ever found theY will prove to have been stolen. The criminals will always have guns, and the legislators want to disarm law abiding citizens at the behest of the ignorant among us, THUS RENDERING THE INNOCENT TO BE VICTIMIZED! A LAW ABIDING CITIZEN

  2. Sad, so sad! The gangs have a misplaced honor system that demands silence even when one’s life is at risk. Gang members will kill each other but they will die knowing they did not rat each other out. There is a war raging on our streets. The answer is not more gun control but it has to lie in the hands of our youth. In order for that to happen they must have hope. Jesus can bring that hope to each of us. C
