Under Pennsylvania law, with a clean record, Jerome could buy as many guns as he could afford. The only snag? It was illegal.
"Almost from the beginning," he said, "they knew what I was up to."
Jerome was referring to the gun dealers, the legitimate gun dealers who sold him 160 guns over a two-year period and now shrug their shoulders and say, "I didn't do anything wrong."
Eventually Jerome went to jail for a couple years and seems to have learned his lesson. His current attitude is this.
Watching the news, Jerome knows he's partly responsible for the city's crisis of violence. But he thinks there's blame to go around.
"I knew it would come to an end for me. I just wish those gun dealers were held accountable."
What do you think? Is there "blame" to go around?
