    Another idiot blaming the gun, how about put the blame where it lies, with the person doing the shooting. Then actually do something to the person doing the shooting.

    oh like other places are much better, thats a ba area of town anyways, most of the neighborhoods that border Ft. Bragg are because no one wants to live that to base so rent is low. This shooting took place less than a block from a police substation, lol.
