    The video on the WOOD TV link is excellent by the way.

    I can't find anything about this story online. Obviously, murders are so common there due to their strict gun laws that the papers don't even bother to print the stories any more.

    If only the child had had a kid sized pistol in his sock, all this could have been avoided.

    From the earlier link and update:

    Police are in the process of chasing Rodric Dantzler, who was tracked to an area in Alpine Township and then merged onto U.S. 131. Witnesses said a civilian was shot in the area of Fulton and Division, as well.
    Not sure if that is now an 8th victim. Really really bad neighborhood.

    Re: Mass Murder in Michigan

    The suspect has recently been released from prison. Thus he was a convicted felon and convicted felons are banned by federal law from owning any type of firearm. Meaning a complete ban on this guy owning a gun didn't stop him but then again neither did the consequences of committing 7 counts of first degree murder. I don't know if Michigan has the death penalty but he was facing the most severe punishment possible in that state

    probably bought a gun from someone who sold it to him illegally, from in-state or out-of-state.

    or he just went to a local gun show and was able to buy whatever he wanted.

    Just like he could buy completely banned crack cocaine or marijuana

    all gun laws do is to make guys like this have a higher likelihood of killing lots of people

    only a fool thinks that a gun ban would be any more effective than the ban on cocaine is in ending the use of that stuff.

    a gun ban is even more futile for several reasons

    guns last at least 100 years if they aren't allowed to rust

    there are 300 million guns-mostly unregistered in the USA

    even if guns are banned police and military lose thousands a year through theft stupidity and illegal sales to others

    While your statement is at least partially true (Charlotte NC has a murder rate of about 11.2, while NYC is 6.3), it is not the whole story.

    Chicago, which virtually bans private handgun ownership, has a murder rate of 16 per 100k. Chicago is three times as deadly as NYC and twice as violent as LA | Chicago Muckrakers

    Washington DC, with draconian gun laws, has a murder rate of 31 per 100k for 2008, the same year I looked at for the other stats.

    Re: Mass Murder in Michigan

    Based on the details, it sounds like the system has failed. It puts so many people in jail yet releases a guy like this without sufficient medical supervision? I know, I know... it's easy to criticize as an outsider to the situation, but I can't help it. Someone who has a record of causing bodily harm and who is known to be bipolar really needs to have an eye kept on him, no?

    That's assuming he did this, which appears likely.

    Either way, you can blame this on the Libbos.
