Too many illegal guns. The one I legally carry is concealed on my body and the others I legally own are locked in the safe waiting to come out and serve their purpose of hunting or shooting clays or competition. All of them legal, all of them doing what they were intended to do, and all of them stay out of gang related activities. Gang members do not go through background checks nor purchase their guns from FFL dealers.

Please refrain from responding to Hi_est Dumbshit. All he really wants is to be on the google hit list by stirring up shit by making stupid comments that people respond to.

Please explain how a riot (by anyone or any organization) finds anyone, especially a killer? Really?
