    I understand that no gun laws will prevent this kind of shooting. And I do not advocate any gun laws that look to ban guns (an none are seriously being proposed)

    However, we see countless incidents that would typically be a fistfight and yield a black eye, turn into a death because someone has easy access to a gun.

    I know many that feel that if EVERYONE were armed we would have less violent crime. I believe that more people "packing" leads to greater use and simple disagreements all too easily turn in to deaths.

    This case is a perfect example. The Trevon Martin case is another.
