GUNS

I am a retired Cop, in the United States , we have 300,000 Police Officers and 11,000,000 hard core gang members . It's not the Guns that's the problem , you have people today that should not be free to kill. London, England has more killing then New York City, all killed with KNIFES not GUNS, Bad people are Just bad and should be put away for life.https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2018/04/03/londons-murder-rate-higher-than-new-york-citys/480860002/

    The problem is the justice system. Reinstate the death penalty with no plea bargaining. You kill a person you lose your life immediately. We have gotten to lenient and the criminals know it.
