Damn, I'm sick of this crap happening around the bay area. If we all carried guns this wouldn't happen!!! Both of my parents were given a concealed weapons permit to carry a gun. And let me tell you they were not afraid to use it if need be. If all law abiding Americans were allowed to carry guns. Then people would think before they committed these types of crimes. After all the criminals carry guns. Why not level the playing fiel? Just sayin.
