“The Allen County Coroner has identified the two victims as teenagers in Monday’s shooting.”

Technically they were teen agers. But in most parts of the world they would be considered adults or on the cusp of being adults. Now the local gun control freakazoids can claim more little kids are being killed by “gun violence.” Likely they were doing “Adult” stuff and paid with their life. The stuff they were involved in were likely also illegal, and they paid with their lives. Who shot them? Was that person also a “teen?” If so , the inanimate firearm used was illegally possessed according to federal and state law. When people run round with illegally possessed firearms usually nothing good can come of it. We do have laws that unconstitutionally modify or curtail our Constitutional Tights. One wonders what the record of these two “teens” and the person that shot them is. How many time has the judicial system failed to punish past misdeeds leading to their deaths. Avoiding punishment does not help anyone.
