I was reading the Oregonian the other day, and came across an article titled "mother lobbies for stricter gun control laws in Oregon". In the article it talks about how her son was shot, and killed due to gang violence. She is trying to lobby with mayor Sam Adams (go figure) to make to gun policies stricter here. In the article it also mentions that her son was a known gang member, and was shot by another known gang member. Now it seems outrageous because most gang members do not obtain firearms legally, so why would restricting the availability of obtaining firearms legally like all of us do make any difference. The most surprising thing of all was that politicians from Texas, where the mother was from were sponsoring her in all of this, doesn't Texas have drive through gun shops?
