    Mike that was meant as sarcasm. I agree with you, gun laws have no affect on those who steal the guns and that was my point. This person was a 20 year old, not 14. And we don’t know if he was a felon or not, but I doubt anybody walking the streets with a concealed loaded 9mm firearm is out selling Girl Scout cookies.

      I would give CCW’s the benefit of the doubt on that.

    I’m sure stricter gun control would have prevented all of these felons from having firearms…

      I highly doubt that Chris. Gun laws are meant for law abiding citizens. When someone on the street has a gun its usually a stolen one. Obviously this fourteen year old didnt walk into Turners and purchase that thing. What we do need are stricter gun laws against people prohibited from carrying firearms. And the article made no mention whether or not the kid was a felon.
