And they are already talking about a gun "buyback." (Confiscation) This is my response: "I don't care who the people were that were doing the shooting I care that a young child was shot," said 5th Ward Alderman Venita Hervey. So you don't care that your laws will cause weapons to be taken away from people who have not done anything wrong and who have not endangered anyone with their firearms? "No questions asked just give us the guns so that they are not out on the street and falling into the wrong hands," said Rockford Police Chief Dan O'Shea. Sure, we'll just give up our best means to defend ourselves. May I ask you why? Why would we do that. If anything this shooting has proven that police show up after the crime has already happened. And also, especially in these times, why would I trust you with my firearms? Police are already enforcing unconstitutional laws and breaking their oaths. Why should I trust you with my protection? "Here's the difficulty, the gang bangers and the ones engaged in that hard core criminal element don't turn in their guns. I think we need to make it so that the buy back is for the illegal guns, those with the serial numbers shaved down, those that have been used in killings, those that have been stolen," said 5th Ward Alderman Venita Hervey Wait. So you are going to "buy back" guns that have been stolen or bought illegally? Question: how? How in the world are you going to buy these illegal firearms back if you don't know where they are? And if you did know where they are, shouldn't you make jailing the criminal who owns the illegal firearm your priority? You are criminalizing the ownership of firearms instead of the criminals that abuse them. You are making innocent people pay for the acts of criminal. https://www.wifr.com/content/news/Rockford-Police-Consider-Gun-Turn-in-Program-392527691.html

Ever been to Rockford? This shooting doesn't surprise me at all. It's like being surprised at a violent crime happening in Gary, Indiana. It's not the gun's fault either. Give out severe punishment to those committing the crimes instead of placing responsibility onto inanimate objects and just giving the perps a slap on the wrist. The devil didn't make them do it. They're just horrible people.

Murderer was Duke Webb, 37 year old white male from Florida. The 3 dead were all elderly white men, aged 73, 69, and 65; unknown if they were related. The other 3 injured were a 62 year old man who was shot multiple times and is in critical condition, a 16 year old girl who was shot in the shoulder, and a 14 year old boy who was shot in the face and airlifted to the hospital. And those are the only facts known at this point in time. No information about what kind of gun was used, nor what the reason or motivation was, or if the victims were known to the shooter.

US gun culture strikes again. The US is the most murderous developed nation, thanks to our affection for firearms. When we people realize, the existence of guns in our society are the problem, a direct threat to safety. And, before someone says something about illegal carry vs legal carry. Which is the mass murders was committed by someone who illegally carried versus those with legally purchased/owned firearm(s)?
