    Well, it’s a good thing San Francisco has banned hand guns, otherwise someone may have got hurt.

      Yep, since only the gang members who’s Laws does not apply to has guns, I feel a lot saver now.

    2. Pav says:

      Someone already got hurt. What is relation between gun low and this incident?

  2. Connor says:

    Well, I’d feel a lot less safe with folks like you packin. Gang-bangers shoot eachother – stay away from gangs and you’re pretty safe. Who knows who paranoid NRA members will shoot.

    1. Chris says:

      Yeah Connor, because we all know innocent bystanders don’t get shot…

    2. Ben says:

      Just Think Conner! If everyone was allowed to carry a concealed weapon, maybe, just maybe, the gang bangers and all the other non-law abiding thugs would think twice about threatening someone with a gun for fear they might get hur themselves.

    All of you have horrible grammar.

  4. Connor says:

    Yeah…all the NRA-ers will keep the gang-bangers in check…
    Guess what? They all know eachother are likely carrying, and it doesn’t make a damn bit of difference.
    And if you’re an innocent bystander who gets shot through a wall or in a car a block away, what the heck is being armed going to do for you?
    If you were carrying a gun, and you saw a gang-banger shoot another gang-banger, would you be the hero, pull out your gun, and bring them to justice?

    I bet all people who left a comment still have a gun. You aren’t just going to give your antiques away are you? No… I didn’t think so!!!
    I’m not a gang banger nor a NRA member. Your conversation is pointless!!! BTW: “Most NRA people are pretty responsible” But the guns off the street has to start somewhere.
