With the gun debate in this country comfortably on the back burner, now more than ever people should be attentive to what is going on in the country. Unfortunately gun violence in the country is still rising, particularly the use of semi-automatic and assault style weapons. With these weapons seemingly ending up in the hands of teenagers more and more, which is both very alarming and very interesting at the same time. How are these young people arming themselves with high power weapons and enough ammunition to hold off a S.W.A.T. team. Well aside from the obvious and brazen dealings that occur on the internet and the raiding of their parents gun closets, the availability of guns at department stores is still hard to understand. And for good reason.
There has been various reports of gun theft at big box department stores, especially at stores in small rural towns where the security is, well more relaxed....because its always been that way and God bless em. But unfortunately that makes them easy targets and fair game for people looking for weapons. Now we all understand that there really is no solid fix to the gun situation in our country, but guns should be sold at gun shops not at stores where you can buy groceries, toys, and appliances.
