    Oh but more gun laws or Hillary’s confiscation will stop this..oh yeah.
    see, take guns away from lawful people, and the criminals will start obeying the law…see how works if your brain is wired left…

    This is the second shooting this month within close proximity to both Southwest Community Campus School and Caesar Chavez School but no Grand Rapids news agency has bothered to acknowledge this fact. 
    I can only imagine the reaction if this happened in a East Grand Rapids school neighborhood.
