  1. “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”..take it anyway you please.

    I could be wrong, but these shootings seem related, given the places and they manner they were committed…these shootings appear to be retaliatory in nature…Once upon a time in Vincyland, gun Violence was a rarity, nowadays, it has become common place and the choice of weapon for the criminal element in Vincyland. It’s a lucky thing we have an astute Police Commissioner who knows what he is doing. With Commissioner Miller at the helm, I am confident that the shooter will be caught and given a job as a police officer.
