That sounds like a neighborhood I lived in as a kid.....


I did not encounter that type of neighborhood till in my twenties. I lived in fear until I could get out about six months later. (It was the Boston 'Combat zone') You did not go out after dark and you always went out in groups with guys. The building had five apartments all women except for the two gays guys on the first floor. They did escort duty thank goodness. Boston is completely anti-gun but of course that didn't keep the guy from being murdered on our door step.

That experience is probably why I empathize with the Mom.

I hear you, and I understand. I feel for her too. I am surprised they would have legal gun ownership in a high crime area be off limits. Makes no sense unless your going to put a ton of extra effort into confiscating the illegal ones - and be highly successful at doing so.

I do hope some gun experts can come up with a plan though - to give some education (discounted rates) to help legal gun owners out. I can see our rights being taken away so easily with these arguments of a deadly weapon and who they are in the hands of (people having them accessible around a suicidal or homicidal person or a child), or whether they truly are of benefit. We want gun owners to feel confidence (at least some - I don't even have a ton). She didn't have that even though she had a powerful weapon. Her daughter is gone. It did nothing for her except make her the criminal when she was a victim. The gun, in a way, was turned on her.
Let's hope she catches a break and her child is found.
