    devilish, It's Called Liberalism. If it feels Good Do It. That was their Motto about 40 Years ago.
    Another thing, The Democrats love these type of Stories, The More Gun Crimes the More they can get their GUN CONTROL LAWS PASSED. They know how to work the System.
    Tax the Rich, They are all Rich.
    Feel sorry for the Children being Killed in Syria, BUT give Million's to Planned Parenthood to Kill the Innocent Unborn.

    function in society

    Its how parents are raising their children today. Its how parents are not being parents to their own children. Many parents are abusers of illegal drugs, alcohol, boy friend/girl friends. In other words these children see to much in the home. Parents should never be a friend to their children, but a parent they should always be. How many parents allow their young adults children to live in their home with their boy/girl friend unmarried?

    If the courts would put a harsher punishment on these gun totting people maybe these shooting stories would slow down. Every day someone is shooting and killing. Will it ever end?

    I know this sounds like common sense but why can't people just wake up, function in society, and go home without violence? Is this truly what we have to expect for the rest of our lives-violence everyday? It's sad that I've never seen a day in my life where someone didn't do something against the law at least once!

    Holy nikes... I heard those gunshots last night, while I was outside on my break. I work about 2.5 blocks away.

    Used to work for a Pizza Hut Delivery location next door to this gas station- quit working there when the attendant was murdered one night. Dangerous area indeed and it hasn't gotten any safer from what I'm reading and seeing when I drive around there.
