Why would you post something from the state with the strictest or at least among the strictest gun control in the country as some type of evidence that we need gun control?

So... suggestions?

Two people were shot in San Diego late Monday after meeting a potential buyer who was responding to a Craigslist advertisement.
Or is this San Diego, Alabama?

So... suggestions?

Your right! all the strictest gun laws in the world, sorry are not the answer. Not going to 100% stop these whackos, and there ability, to want to hurt others. I really think this is a epedemic,, and going to spread, sad but true,

This is not just a gun issue, but a issue with our severly depressed, sick and menatally ill individuals, not getting diagnoised, or the medical help needed.

Some parents are living this nitemare, i know a family, going thru this with a son. No facility will accept this whacko, and he is whacked in every way, and dangerous, unitl he actually kills someone, or he signs himself into a facility, to get the help needed. No way he will, he sees those around him as threatening to him, and feels he is fine but everyone around him, are nuts.

Parents are at there wit-end they don't know what else to do, and they live in a afluential community, this desease hits all people no matter where you live.

More ridiculous gun violence. We have to live with it, unfortunately.

But I don't really understand why people try to sell things on Craigslist. I use eBay and Amazon to sell all of my stuff, and I don't have to deal with any strangers in person.
This isn't the first time this has happened.There have been robberies, shootings and rapes when people have responded to Craigs list. This should be a warning, be careful when you agree to meet someone. BTW, Are you suggesting all guns should be banned or did the shooter use a assult weapon? I am sure there have been more crimes committed in San Diego this year than just this one...

so are one of thsoe that wants to see all guns banned? This is such a wonderful answer to our problems. Lets make the illegal so criminals will be the only ones with them. For some reason I really do not think those who commit crimes using a gun, really care if they are legal or not.

Take guns aways, make laws tougher, is not the whole answer here. Criminals, don't care if they are legal or not.



Criminals are criminals for a reason. What about the prolbems with those who are mental, and not getting help they need. Or trying to receive help, and getting absolutely no where.

I feel sorry for those shot but people have to exercise common sense ESPECIALLY with all the recent newsreports regarding shootings and robberies.

Why in the world would they meet in a parking lot and then allow him to get in the car? Not blaming them but we all know there's crazy folks out there; gotta protect yourself.
