Bull!!! These people who were are still are rioting, looting, murdering and raping were NOT upstanding, respectable citizen's of their community! Plain and simple they were and are low-life, scumbag thugs. I have dealt with these type of people before, ANY and I mean, ANY opportunity they get they will do this. Do you really think that if Walmart and the pawn shops didn't have any guns they wouldn't be out there doing the same thing. Yes they added to the gun power but thugs and gangbangers don't usually get their guns from a store. The old saying is true, "If you outlaw guns then only outlaws will have guns!"

More than likely, the guns stolen were shotguns, pistols and rifles, which can be found in any Wal Mart, pawn shop and hunting store.
Granted, there are always going to be bad apples, but going in with guns blazing is not going to solve the problem. It hasn't worked anywhere or anytime in history, and invariably, it backfires.
