    What a shock–shooting deaths in the USA!
    Of course, in Texas, guns make things safer.

    How many little Dj latinos and other U.S. citizens under the age of 30 dead for a decade- how many?
    But let one little OBOMBA incident repeat among wealthy loud OBOMBAS gun toting MOMS and see
    OBAMBA make the world safe like in Afghanistan and the "evil" Iran. What a fake FLAG country !

      @ UnderstandingEtAl;
      I'd like to see the USA made as safe from gun violence as France, England, Germany, and other European countries.

      They died because a "lunatic" had a gun! So what if a "lunatic" drove a car into a crowd of people! Would you then start blaming vehicles? its called ACCOUNTABILITY see what Mr.Webster has to say about that word....or wait because it happened on x-mas eve, lets ban x-mas eve right?

      rw&b (yeah small letters becauce I totally disrespect trash like you) you slime fool of a nra supporter. Those brothers of mine were not killed with a car, knife, club ,ect but with a AR-15 weapon, like the one I use to own. You know, black matte finish , 30 rd bananna clip! I saw how sick it was to own one, turned it in to police buy back.Im still armed but unlike I see no need for private ownership of weapons like that.

    Merry Christmas to all my American admirers and friends who supported me in 2012. I have this feeling that there will be at least ONE more great gun story that this fine news station will have a chance to report on before EOY.
