This would be the saddest story that I have heard of for awhile. It is of an innocent 12 year old boy who was killed Friday night (18th April 08) in front of a store in Wilkinsburg. They say he was not the intended victim but that would be a small consolation to the parents of Kholen Germany.
So once again an innocent victim falls prey to some stupid gun toting person. I know that Americans believe it is their constitutional right to carry arms but it seems a high price to pay when this right has the undesired effect on victims falling prey to intentional and unintentional flying bullets.
Perhaps someone over there should bite the bullet, face the gun lobby and do something about the proliferate ownership of guns.
