That's where I disagree. All guns start out as the legally owned property of some gun owner of FFL gun dealer and somehow end up in criminal hands. Laws aimed at those legitimate gun owners can definitely prevent some of these incidents. If gun owners are so legitimate, why don't they cooperate more with attempts at prevention?
It's interesting that Boston joins a number of other major cities who've suffered a terrible increase in gun violence last year. Even more interesting is how the gun rights extremists try to spin that one around.Yesterday’s shooting is the first homicide of the year for the Boston Police Department, which saw a nearly 50 percent increase in homicides last year. More than 70 people were killed in 2010, which started with a deadly shooting and a separate stabbing incident on New Year’s Day. Most of last year’s homicides involved a firearm, Boston police statistics show.
