Georgia Man Dies

Video link

A Cordele man who was shot in his home more than a week ago has died. 

58-year-old Irvin Bivens was struck in the stomach last Saturday when someone opened fire outside his home. Police now say they think his murder is connected to a shooting at a convenience store the same night.

Incidents like this are happening in every city every day. They are a direct result of the lax or non-existent gun laws, which ensure that young criminals will always have all the guns they need. It is a side-effect of what the gun-rights folks call freedom.

What's your opinion?  Please leave a comment.


  1. No, it's a consequence of allowing young thugs to move their way up into becoming older thugs without society doing anything to inconvenience them. We coddle children in schools, tolerating their bad behavior, and we let violent criminals out of prison because, of course, a pot smoker is far more dangerous. Those are much more the cause than gun control--as your posting about most and least violent states demonstrates.

    1. So your answer is to let them have easy access to guns, lest we inconvenience you.

    2. Since you won't listen, yes. That's my answer.

      If you were willing to listen, I'd tell you that gun availability isn't the cause of the problem. Why do you insist on an irrelevant and unworkable answer to this?
