4 Dead in NY Pharmacy Robbery
The AP reports
Four people killed during a pharmacy store robbery in suburban New York City, including a teenager due to graduate high school this week, were shot at very close range by a dangerous suspect intent on stealing painkillers, a police official said Monday.
Everyone agrees we have a terrible crime problem. Most feel that the war on drugs is not helping things. But when it comes to gun availability, the gun-rights fanatics draw the line. This has nothing to do with it, they cry.
What's your opinion? Drug addicts who become stone killers AND have easy access to guns are a bigger problem that they would be if we would only control the flow of guns better. Don't you think?
