Yeah my husband and I had our infant in the carriage going to dinner so that the struggling restaurants at Forest Hills don't go out of business like so many others. We were in front of the Brassica when we heard the gunfire and then saw the commotion.

This may be an unpopular opinion, but I believe registered gun owners should be held at least partially responsible for any crimes committed with their gun if it gets stolen. Either that, or losing track of your gun (even via theft) should itself be a crime. The frequency with which guns go missing and turn up at crime scenes hundreds or thousands of miles away is simply insane.

This is the dumbest thing I have heard. It’s like saying I should hold you accountable or jail you if I steal your car and run some one over with it.
