    And the cops want to take guns away from the people claiming its up to the police dept. to protect the people, well good job protecting that poor girl who lost her life, if she had a gun she could of at least had a chance to defend herself… R.I.P. babygirl…

        No I don’t and neither do you… All I’m meant was there’s a bunch of crazies out there and if you don’t want to exercise your fundamental right to defend yourself or your family then that’s on you but I want my kids to have a fighting chance, gangs recruit kids as young as 10 and play point em out knock em out to the point where guns are used or a breakin happens in our house from crazies, we all need a fighting chance, so don’t take me out of context but we live in an ungodly world, what if it was your daughter???? Better to have a gun and not need it then to need a gun and not have it…. Its our right to decide not yours or anyone else’s… My deepest condolences

      yeah, when does the riot start in Gary? This poor unarmed girl got shot for no reason… She needs justice. So that means protests, riots and looting, right? Seems legit!
