@Gerald Hennessey: Anyone can access a gun, who said it was purchased legally or purchased at all? The liberals are pushing for non-citizens to have voting rights (the reason for our open borders) so they can stay in power. Everyone is unstable due to lockdowns, rampant crime, open air drug markets and inflation since Biden took office. What a complete mess.
