Please keep in mind that these citizens, legal or illegal, were just excercising their constitutional right to bear arms. Just because two are dead and two are wounded is just a by-product of excercising their Second Amendment right.

Expect to see more violent crimes like this shooting around these parts as those inclined to commit violence know that they will not be properly prosecuted by our courageous DA.

Too bad you have to drive out of our county to buy a decent gun.
