Three months left to beat last years record. HG get a hold of your people and give them the stats. Damn if there was only a community center to gather your people.

Shootings aren't news anymore. Only the killings.

No big surprise we have shootings following a gun show in Hampton this weekend. I guess all the criminals replenished their gun supply.

The time has come to close the gun show loophole!

HG!! It's no surprise you are on here spewing your garbage. Your thugs did not obtain their guns from the gun show, they obtained them from other thugs in the east end. You could close down guns shows and guns shops completely and your thugs would STILL get a hold of guns.

AND, need I remind you...it's the gunshow participants that carry/discharge weapons leagally. The folks that play 'shoot em up' in downtown nnews don't bother doing it the right way, therefore, need not attend a legitimate establishment to purchase a weapon or ammo legally. The murdering shots that ring out in the middle of the night at east end nnews come from thugs. RINGIN' A BELL?

Come on HG, the gun didn't kill anyone, the thug that pulled the trigger did. Shoot, if I can blame the gun for that, the I guess I have to blame play boy magazine for my carpal tunnel............
