So what he owned a couple of guns. These things happen in US cities everyday and several times a day at that. 'Economic stress', 'drugs', or plain old criminal activity etc., what's the diff? A crime is a crime. Tired of seeing firearms blamed,..blame the criminals instead.
I agree its the man behind the guns not the guns themselves. You know, with more and more people being foreclosed on and evicted, I'm surprised we don't see more of this happening. I feel bad for the cops civilians and their families. I am disgusted by banks and corporations taking advantage of civilians.
