That's the problem with handguns. No one has any problem with RESPONSIBLE people carrying weapons. But these weren't responsible people. Anyone who pulls out a gun and starts shooting to avoid a $100 towing charge and a $60 impound fee shouldn't have a gun. They're a danger to society, and giving them a gun only increases the risk they're gonna kill someone. That person is facing charges now, but he's just lucky he's not looking at 25 years in jail for murder.
I'm Canadian, so it's none of my business what you guys do within your own borders. I'm just glad there are many fewer handguns in Canada, and the criminals that are shooting, are usually shooting at other criminals. (and I don't mind that)
