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.
