Regalado, 38, showed up at Yoyito Cafe in Hialeah on Sunday night, just as his estranged wife was finishing her second day as a waitress. Armed with a .45-caliber pistol that he owned, he pulled the trigger nine times, killing Molina and three co-workers. He also wounded three others in a shooting spree that was described by 911 callers as total mayhem.
Do you think when they say "pistol that he owned" they mean legally? If he'd been a gangster or a drug dealer they would have said that, don't you think?
So let's say this terribly sad story exemplifies several things we frequently talk about.
1. a certain percentage of gun owners should not have guns.
2. guns are bad news for women.
3. Florida has a sick gun culture.
