I bet this grandma was driving ridiculously slow, feeling entitled with her 3 year old to act however she feels on the road. Some guy is annoyed because hes following her for blocks going 18 MPH in a 35 MPH zone. He beeps, then her entitlement takes over again and she starts screaming and cursing him out. At the stop sign, he jumps out and says "Who's the mf'er now?" POP POP POP
Doesnt that sound quite a bit likely?

On that point, I'd take a wild guess here that at least one of the following is true:
1) He does not have an Arkansas carry permit in order to keep a loaded handgun in his vehicle
2) He has a prior criminal history that disqualifies him from legally acquiring/possessing a firearm
3) He acquired the firearm through illegal means
So basically better gun control laws and reform are needed if any of the above are true.
Here in Canada, it is *legal to own a gun* unless a person has a prior conviction (criminal record); documented for past violent behaviour; or deemed mentally unfit by the Ministry Of Health.
The point I was making earlier is that far too often, these people were already breaking the law in one way or another, and adding another layer isn't going to stop anything. We need better enforcement of existing laws, and while obviously I don't know if its the case here, far too often these inner city homicides are committed by those who have prior violent felony convictions who end up right back on the streets in a couple of years after early parole. That shouldn't be happening, but it does all the time.
