Another child victim of gun violence.

Once again, another poor, teenage child has fallen victim to the horrible scourge of gun violence that plaeges the nation.
One Alfredo Cruz was gunned down by his drug dealer when he came up short in paying his tab ... wait, what?

Said dealer was a 16 year old, who can not legally purchase or even possess a gun out in the state of Florida.
So, illegal posession of a firearm, trafficking narcotics, posession with intent to sell ... manslaughter or murder?

The laws we have on the book right now are not preventing these matters, both the gun related crimes ans well as the drug-related ones. Coming down harder and harder as previous efforts fail miserably has not solved the drug problems ... might I suggest taking a different approach when it comes to guns?
