Teen girl arraigned on murder charge
The teenage girl accused of shooting a fellow teen Monday afternoon appeared in court Tuesday to be arraigned on four counts of first degree murder.
Police say the 14-year-old John Hope High School freshman -- whose name was not released -- shot and killed 14-year-old Endia Martin in the 900 block of West Garfield Boulevard.
The gun used in the shooting, a legal (emphasis mine).38-caliber revolver, was kept in the owner’s car but was reported stolen (emphasis mine) April 14, Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said. Police departments don’t let officers store their guns in their cars, but under the state’s concealed-carry law, individuals who are properly permitted can.

Excellent point perhaps for another thread...
Why is the media using the term legal to describe this gun used in the shooting?
Once the gun was stolen, it is no longer legal, right?
Pardon me...I would think once any item is stolen, the use of the word legal as an adjective would be an oxymoron, right? - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...
