Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Bet it was not bought from a dealer! And the guns we free Americans have are ours and were bought from a dealer!!

Truly worried

My thoughts exactly. Had the businessman been carrying, perhaps he could have shot back and cleaned up the gene pool a bit.

What a surprise both are already felons!! NOT!

I agree dichotomy and its sad the bleeding heart judges and parole boards are so dang stupid they don't just give second chances, they give handfuls to these violent felons and at the price of innocent citizens lives. Even cold blooded premeditated murder by career criminals sometimes doesn't open up their ignorant eyes. I don't know which one I'm more shocked at sometimes the joke of a justice system we have now or these morons who think another gun law will change anything. Obviously, like in this case, the current laws work so well that felons have no chance still getting a gun to commit crimes with so additional ones will be just as effective right?? I just can not understand people who can sit there and see something fail so miserably and think its a good idea to keep beating that dead horse rather than do something different. I mean what kind of mental defect is in peoples minds that say hey, rather than hold people accountable and punish them appropriately to save lives, lets take said dangerous objects away. Isn't that what you do to children and toddlers?? Yeah just ban everything from responsible people so the black market can increase thier revenue and still have the same crimes committed!! Good idea!!
