    If we insisted on a higher standard of 'security of the weapon' by the so called 'legal owners', then we wouldn't have so many 'illegal' guns floating around.
    All guns start out legal....then the 'legal' people allow them to get out of control.

    See? What we need are some new gun laws, and some more restrictions... then this sort of gun-violence would be reduced! ...Or at least the probability of it.
    Golly. I wonder if these guys will lose their Concealed Carry Permits... And their legally owned registered guns they used. …Well except for the one that was a stolen gun... I guess that will go back to its rightful owner, eh?

    Possession of a stolen firearm and his bail is 30 thousand. He will be out in no time soon and have his new gun the next day.
