You do realize the Police are also experts in this, right? I mean I understand the Merc has never shot for the highest of journalistic standards, but the bias is getting to be like a neurotic tic, you just can't help it anymore.

Thanks for a deeper than most article on an important topic. The easiest and quickest tool for reducing gun violence is for the press to simply stop reporting it. That could be done now in Portland for free. The next step should be the elimination of firearms fetish from film and television as has been done with cigarettes. From there we can go on to serious ammunition control and gun owner insurance. None of those would inhibit legitimate gun owners.

^^^^^I’m so surprised. A RWN who can’t figure out how to post a comment, followed by a bullshit rant in all caps. Go back to rural Crack-in-the-Ass.
