According to this story....
Thompson was the original and LEGAL owner of this weapon. He sold it for drugs and it become a Community firearm.

And he does ONE year for his role in the crime....

-SHOCKING!!!

Driven by addiction, Thompson apparently did not consider just how his legally purchased semiautomatic rifle would be used when in the hands of drug dealers. Now 36, he is free after a yearlong prison sentence.

"I must live with this thought of an innocent little girl with a chance for a good life gunned down without a chance," Thompson wrote in a letter to U.S. District Court Judge Charles Siragusa before his 2011 sentencing.

"This is because I gave a street thug a gun."

Blacks have always been #1 killers. The kill more people in 1 month than anybody else. There is no fix for a race that's dumber than rocks. Look at the schools with this trash race.

99.99% of school massacres are done in Suburban neighborhood schools. Minority schools are PRO-active, not RE-active when it comes to gun violence and schools.

Metal detectors have prevented many school shootings, thank you.

What was your point again???

Agree with some of what you were trying to get across,but what are your feelings about the murders that take place on the streets? Chicago=400+--Detroit=300+--Ca mden NJ= 165+-- LA/Compton= 300+ Rochester=30+ just to name a few last year. 99.9 % of these murders are with stolen/illegal guns.Do you believe that more gun laws would help or if the laws we have on the books now were enforced and the thugs were sent to prison for a min of 10 years (non murder crimes using guns) would stop most of these killings? I go with enforcing the laws to their fullest before any "new" laws are enacted. Just asking/saying.
