    Nothing says "Weekend in Grand Rapids" like a shooting. Those Stop The Violence meetings aren't getting much accomplished. I hope they can figure something out to end it.

    I think it's a bit disrespectful for theses comments tone made, I was this boys teacher and he was a nice young man. He was caught up in the street life but he was determined to go to college and make something of himself. I am sorry for his parents and pray that the family will have support.

    I think it's disrespectful of the anti-gun crowd to blame responsible gun owners for the acts of….unlawful gun owners
