One was gang related, the other was domestic. These are the kinds of shootings that gun-rights activists try to claim they have nothing to do with. But, can they really say that? I don't think so. As supporters of the very laws, or lack thereof, that enable disqualified people to get guns as easily as buying milk at the grocery story, they share in the responsibility.
Unless you support the simple gun control laws that would prevent much of this violence, then you are partly responsible for the violence. The only response from the gun crowd that rings true is the one which says this is the price we must pay for freedom. I disagree with that, but at least it makes sense in a calculating kind of way, and it recognizes that the responsibility for this gun violence does not stop with the doers of it but also extends to the enablers.
