    More people with guns who need to be killed, not just recycled back onto the streets.

    If the police and courts cannot or will not protect law-abiding people, then those law-abiding people are justified in protecting themselves through vigilante committees.

    Prayers for the recovery of these two victims.

    Where are these criminals getting the guns? people are just getting shot and kill randomly and no one is responsible for these crimes,on the news you hear people getting kill but you do not hear who got prosecuted for the coward act of murdering innocent people.
