They believe the weapon was either passed down to Blake by his father, or privately purchased at a Monroe gun show.
That led to my commentary on requiring background checks for those who buy guns from private parties.
Jim Ewins writes: "It is a short step from requiring all (gun sales) subject to a background check to government having a list of gun owners - and then comes the repression (like what they have) in England."
Adam Sukert: "I find your (commentary) offensive...Why would you blame the tool for something that a person did...If a criminal wants to commit a crime he's going to do it no matter what..."
Steve Nolen: "It's not the guns, but the people."
Paul Morris: "(Government) needs to stay very clear of the private, law abiding citizens who own firearms...Get the facts...Stop relying on your sacred gun banner buddies."
And finally, from Michael Meisner: "...More government in your life that is keeping track of your personal property does not...Keep guns out of the hands of criminals who are already breaking the law by having a firearm in the first place."
Maybe that's true, Michael, but the law doesn't have to make it so darn easy from those criminals to get a gun.
Thanks for writing everyone.
Have a great weekend.
