    I understand that Halloween is one of those times where a lot of crime happens but come on now. Is it really that hard to pass out some candy instead of lead?

    That's mental.

    Pretty much, the two kids and their father went to the door because he had his porch light on, a sign that he's giving out candy, and when they knocked on the door, he cut down on them through the wood. Killed one...

    Apparently, there is some other shit going on too, people running away from the scene and such... All strange.

    The guy that killed them had been arrested, previous to this event, on drug charges and the lot.

    I think its shitty how he somehow secured access to an AK-47... Being a known felon and all.

    I believe the police said they didn't believe he was high at the time of the shooting, at least according to the article I read. I don't understand why anyone would do that. If you don't want people coming on Halloween, turn off your lights... But yea, poor kid.

    Maybe he thought it was somebody else? They said he was arrested for drug charges and such before this....maybe he was expecting somebody to come and punch his clock...

    ...it's Halloween. Who the fuck doesn't expect children on their lit porch on Halloween?

    Obvious crackhead is obvious.

    Jesus christ, he emptied a clip. He's going to jail for a very long time, you never shoot through the door - they have to enter the house.

    WTF.

    This is the second kid who died because of dicks with guns. One gave it to his child and another been shootings kids on Halloween.

    Whatever most people say I don't see gun crime going down in the USA until you guys tighten gun control laws. I don't mean to suggest removing guns entirely or restricting your rights, but introducing laws that make it illegal for criminals and convicted felons to possess guns.

    If you do have these laws strict enforcement of these should be enough i.e. destroy any captured guns, increased punishments for illegal possessions and a large visual targeting of firearm proliferation areas (police raids and the like).

    I believe this would significantly reduce Gun proliferation.

    From Micheal Moore's film "Bowling for Columbine,"(I know bullshit) I don't see the NRA allowing any laws to pass that would restrict possession of firearms and the like, however I hope shit like this doesn't happen again.

    Sorry for the rant just got pissed that people can still behave in way which is shoot first and ask questions later.

    I don't think a guy who shoots kids through a door on Halloween can be used as a yard stick for the average American, and some one as paranoid as this would manage to get a gun, restricted or not.

    It doesn't seem that you have bothered to look up the gun laws of the USA so perhaps you should find out what laws you are ranting about beforehand hmmm?

    We have a complete ban of guns here but massive amounts of knife crime, people find a way to kill other people whatever weapons you ban.

    As Marxs would say, don't bann the guns, change the social institutions that create a need to use them.

    Some major drug deal going down or something. I mean, you don't have an automatic ready with people inside the house unless something big is happening.
