    We have laws against drug use and every day someone is injured or killed from illegal drugs.

    Since they are looking for suspects believed to be armed and dangerous, the real answer is when someone is convicted of a firearms charge they should serve HARD time, not just a slap on the wrist. We don't need MORE laws, we need to enforce the ones we have.

    Yet many don't see why we don't need to up-grade the gun control law. Every day someone, somewhere is getting shot, injured or killed. Its not going to stop, not until the person uses common sense or not have a loaded gun in their hand.
