    According to writer Dave Gibson, it's because "what [the press wishes] to stifle most of all is how easily crime can be prevented by a well-armed public."

    I agree. I'm going to write Dave and thank him for running the article.

    For those who don't remember the case, here is more background:

    Let's not forget this case. 9/11 is a day of remembrance anyway.

    what a horrific tragedy, may the perps rot in prison

    also, everyone should send a big thank you to the writer for putting this in the paper, more articles like this are needed!

    They didn't ignore it. They just didn't cover it the way we think it should have been covered.

    I remember this from the national news TV and print but there was not a follow up that I recall.

    Some in this country are all about punishing the gun and letting the criminal out on parole. So when 2 career criminals out on parole commit such horrific murders with a knife the media ignores the story.


    Guns don't kill people, parolees kill people ...

    This has less to do with guns than with social issues and media bias, so it's really off topic for THR.
