I heard about this through a family friend - it was his friend. So terrible. I cannot believe how bad Erie is getting (& other places) when it comes to violence.

No surprise someone was speeding through a residential neighborhood around here. My street is 25- and it's every day I watch someone going 50+ or more down the street with kids out playing and people walking. Now I guess they just shoot you for practice for their evening drive-bys. I will give the police credit here. When they do set up the speed trap, they pull them over as fast as they can write the tickets. But the very next day the speed demons are right back at it again. I'm truly sorry someone had to be killed over something like this.

You're high. The NRA promotes gun safety and the assurences of our Constitutional Rights. Liberals have completely twisted the actual truth. Guns don't kill, someone has to pull the trigger.

Now, what the Libs don't want to here, the real truth. Up bringing. You know who I blame? The Parent(s)! Them and the electronic Babysitter (TV and Movies)! Take responsibility in rasing ratiional, moral, law abiding offspring. If you can't do that, THEN WRAP IT.

Yes, I will continue to exercise my right to bear arms. You will not take that away. I will exercise my right as a parent to teach my children the proper use, and RESPECT, of any and all weapons that I own. So you can take all of your bleeding liberal trash, the want to take firearms from us Law Abiding citizens, and stick it (pick a spot, I don't care).

Stop placing the blame on someone else. Stop passing the buck. WAKE UP.

Oh, and if 'thissitesucks', why are you here?

You are obviously an uninformed IDIOT. I guess we should outlaw "cars" too, because "they" kill people (approximately 1000 people per week in the USA are killed in car accidents..that's 52,000 people per year). Yup, let's outlaw cars rather than hold the moron behind the wheel accountable.

IDIOT!!!

I have a car I use every day for it's designed purpose. I drive it to work, to Church, to the store.....

I also have a gun.....if I used it every day for it's designed purpose I'd be on Death Row....

The old "ban cars" analogy is ridiculous.

Have a so-so day !

Why?
the nra has gone hollywood... they promote guns as guts and glamour instead of a right to own a tool. Dirty Harry sells better than George Washington. They go for the money from any idiot they can seduce... just like political parties, organized religion, cell phones, and tampons. I used to be NRA... but i realized i don't need them to tell me how to think.
