In the land of the "most effective gun laws" according to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership, some gangbanging scumbag shot 8 people, 5 of them children, while trying to shoot two rival gang members.
The cops got his ass though, and hopefully some big tattoo'ed monstrocity named Brutus "gets his ass" when he goes to prison. I don't know how California is about keeping criminals behind bars, but I'm pretty sure they don't put much effort into it. How much do you want to bet that he has a mile long record?
Here in Virginia they do a pretty great job putting the nasty folk away for good.
Update: Told you.
