    So sad that this happened. Breaks my heart that the children no longer have a father because some people with guns took his life.

    Again, loaded guns in the wrong hands. I do hope they find these careless criminals very soon.

    Why do people think it's the gun's fault. The bigger question is why do people have so little regard human life. Stop blaming guns. Let us make it about attitude adjustments. $100 says the people involved have some type of criminal records.
