This is such an unfortunate story. It is also a lesson to check out the neighborhood and all the other murders/shootings etc that have taken place around or in the same place of business. Here a family will have to suffer forever because of some 'gun-happy' person. Another sad story to happen in Garfield.....My sincere condolences......

Hey moved, The right to own a gun might have saved the life of that young man who was murdered. I support the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution fully.
If someone were to break into your home and endanger you or your family, you would be happy to have a gun if you needed it. There are millions of responsible gun owners in the United States. It's the criminal like the one who killed the store owner in Garfield who gives guns a bad name. A criminal will kill with a gun, knife, car or anything available. That's what they do. And that can happen anywhere, not just Garfield. This isn't the same place as when we were kids back in the 50's & 60's. Drugs, illegal immigrants, street gangs and home grown punks add to the mix of danger in any neighborhood. Most of the people running these Mini Food Marts face greater odds of getting hurt or killed every hour of the day or night they work. It just isn't fair.
