    @678DEVILISH I just forwarded your suggestion to RPD. Hopefully they take it into consideration.

    He is lucky to be alive. Now the police needs to find the shooter and get him off the streets and behind bars.

    Time to outlaw handguns! There is no need for them in our society.

    Time to outlaw pencils and paper too, because those items maliciously cut and stab people. And cars...they are always causing accidents and such.
    In reality, a gun is no better or worse than a plain red brick...a brick can be used to build a hospital, or it can be thrown through a plate glass window; So, like the gun, it's all up to how the person decides to use it. Please stop blaming inanimate objects for people's misuse of them. Thanks.

    shooting people is already illegal (expect for self defense). laws don't really prevent things from happening.

    Oh those mean little handguns. How dare they get out of the safe, run down the road and randomly shoot people? Then they sneak back before anyone knows they have gone out. Oh those nasty little handguns.
