Re: More shootings .
The point is, if you want to kill people, there's always a means, the bigger problem is that we let people wander the street that have no business doing so. New York City is something like 3 times the size of Chicago, but Chicago has something like 4 times the murder. The difference? The police are allowed to stop and frisk. Chicago has one of the toughest gun laws in the US, but it has the highest murder rate in the US. Texas, WV, Tn, etc., have very low murder rates by gun, yet a very large percentage of the population have guns. In Chicago, if you murder someone, a good lawyer mught have you out in less than 5 years, in Texas, yo may leave prison in 5 years, but it'll be in a pine box. It's not the gun, it's the people.
