The Partnership Between a Gun and the Shooter

The gun is a tool for killing. The killer is the shooter.

This is a truth but another truth is if a gun is not available the killer is not able to shoot the gun and kill.

Without a gun in the hands of the shooter, Edward Christian, Ladarious Phillips, and Demario Pitts would be alive today. They were killed on June 10, 2012, in Auburn, Alabama by a man who had a gun. The gun did not kill. The shooter did, but without the gun the shooter could not have killed Edward, Ladarious, and Demario. The gun and the shooter worked in unison. It was a deadly partnership.

Targeted Gun Violence

A dispute is defined as a debate, controversy, or difference of opinion. Disputes should be settled through dialogue. Settling a dispute through dialoguing can lead to finding a middle ground.

Too many disputes are settled through targeted gun violence.

On March 3, 2012, someone had a dispute with Calvin Johnson. Calvin was shot while at work at the Golden Pizzeria in Newark, N.J.  The difference of opinion was not debated, the difference of opinion was not worked out.  Calvin had no chance to try to find a middle ground. Calvin is dead and his six children are left without a father.
