Obviously a weapon the general public should be allowed to have on their person.
please do me a favor and find out if these guys were supposed to be inpossesion of that gun, and if they face gun charges (which are already on the books) in addition to the aggrevated assualt.
The problem is not the freedom to legally own a specific weapon. The problem is not the lack of laws governing legal and proper use of a weapon.
The problem is total failure in the system to properly penalize those that break the laws we already have. I am willing to bet both of these fingerlicking scum have previous records and yet they were back on the street creating more havoc.
