An 8 year old shot and killed in Atlanta while in a car with her mother when parking in an area that has had protests after another police officer killed an african american man and now faces charges. I feel for the mother and family. I am sure she regrets going anywhere near where there had been violent protests especially with her child.
These protests and related violence in the US is causing more people to puchase guns to protect themselves and their families. Would one have helped in this case? My guess it not likely and many stats say more guns leads to more gun related deaths.
I feel for our neighbors to the south that are struggling with so many things right now and hope they can find a way through this before many more innocent people die.
