    "Two law abiding citizens were involved"

    That's an absurd argument. Because, by definition, any time a crime is committed with a gun, the person is no longer a law-abiding citizen. Here's the problem: Chances are, when the person acquired the gun, he was a law-abiding citizen at that time. We just never know when a law-abiding person is going to become a non-law-abiding person...which is why we need to take all guns away from everyone!

    Let's take a multiple choice quiz:
    A- This involved two people who were legally prohibited from having guns but got them anwyay;
    B- Gangs or drugs are involved;
    C- The guns were stolen;
    D- Two law abiding citizens were involved;

    Let's wait for the later reporting and see what the true facts are rather than speculating about "needing more gun control."

    Take away the guns so the bad people will use knives,

    throw acid in people's faces,

    run over people with rented trucks .. as they do in England.

    Unless human nature changes people will continue to murder others, just as they did before guns were invented.

    The solution is clearly more guns.
