Once upon a time, criminals would buy a gun, use it for their evil deeds, and get rid of it ... junkers were cheap and plentiful, and easy to get, probably why they accounted for roughly 46% of the guns traced by the ATF in 1994.
- "In the 1980s and early 1990s, they were throwing those guns in the river. But they aren't doing that anymore,"
- "...gangs across the country stash and share weapons, often in abandoned buildings, in an attempt to circumvent gun control laws..."
'course it's a neighbourhood, not a gang territory or turf, and the 15 year old who shot the little girl was an "average, normal kid", not a juvenile gang member ... though he did know in which garbage bag to pick up a gun.
Think of the children much?
Gun control -as is- is not working!
