The young man that killed those 9 people in S Carolina shouldn't have had a gun. There was an error, he had a drug arrest on file which would have eliminated him from getting a gun. Americas murders are higher than other parts of the world and most of the time its done with some sort of a hand gun. Im not talking about someone who likes to go hunting with a rifle for game like bird, deer or elk. I'm talking about all these idiots walking around with a hand gun. I feel frustrated by all the needless deaths and thought I would put this out there. I hope we can be grown ups and be respectful of others feelings, myself included. I want to generate intelligent discussions. Violent crimes with guns seem to be through the roof in large cities. I don't want this subject to be a lightening rod for some. I have some serious questions about the affect the NRA has on our lawmakers and their decisions that they make.
