    In your "perfect world" what would laws would you make? Go ahead, list every last single one of them.

    I doubt very seriously, that more gun laws will do anything more than the ones we have now. The people you want to take the guns away from, are not the people who are committing the crimes. Okay, fine. Every once in a while, someone good goes wacko and does something bad. For the vast majority of crimes committed with guns, the criminals didn't give a hoot about the laws regarding anything, let alone guns.

    why? So you can cry about the cops enforcing them when they do something you don't agree with?

    "Every day brings news of more shootings...does anyone doubt we need stricter gun laws?"

    Not all shootings are bad. For all we know these two guys were trying to break into a house and rape a child. Would you rather the child be raped??

    More gun laws are not the answer. We hardly enforce the laws we already have on the books.

    The gun laws in Mexico are much more strict and look at what happens there. The problem isn't a lack of laws.

    The Plaza Dr. address is an unincorporated area of Wake County. Seems to be in the Garner ETJ. Owner(s) do not pay municipal taxes. Perhaps on well water and septic. No HOA, no municipal services....sounds pretty smart to me.

    looks like a garner address according to wake county tax records

    wonder why the property values and tax values are so much lower in that area than they are in my area,must be either rental properties or a not so nice area
