The guns, which are apparently more available than ever on the streets of St. Petersburg, have all come from legitimate gun owners. This has been an overlooked fact of life in the old lawful-gun-owners vs. criminal-gun-owners discussions.A 25-year veteran of the St. Petersburg, Fla., police was gunned down Monday night while trying to apprehend a suspected burglar, becoming the department's third member to be killed in the line of duty in less than a month.
In places like Florida, criminals have an easier time obtaining guns. It's a direct result of the lax gun laws and the self-serving, consequences-be-damned attitudes of the legitimate gun owners.
That's why I say they're responsible.
