    "...lost to gun violence."

    Horrible story but it was a murdering thug not the gun that was responsible.

    Prayers to the family.

    AARGH. News like that makes me crazy. It's why I'm not a LEO (thank you to those of you who are).

    Prayers for the family.

    Very sad. What a terrible loss for that family. Even worse that his young son was the one who had to react and call police.

    this is one reason why I am a LEO.....I want to try to get as many thugs like this off the street that I possibly can

    horrible situation, I feel so sorry for that kid and what he will endure psychologically in years to come, really hits home since my boy is 6

    Anyone, anywhere, anytime.

    In this case gun registration paperwork literally contributed to getting a man killed.

    i thought the same thing when i read it. had he told someone he had purchased a gun? is that what they were looking for?

    the poor kid having to walk into that scene. bless him for keeping a cool enough head to call 911 and get his grandmother involved.

    It might not have. But CC isn't about guaranteeing anything. It's about giving yourself or your loved ones a chance. He didn't get that chance.

    You put it better than I think I could have.

    This story disgusts me. A 7 year old boy left fatherless, but if not for the red tape and the legalities of obtaining a CWP, it might have ended differently.

    This is yet another argument for states to adopt a Vermont or Alaska style carry law. If you can legally possess it, you should be able to legally carry it.
