    Wow!!! The government continue to ignore the gun crime. As Heknows stated loud and clear ‘he will not be distracted.’

    Are all the ports of entry and other jump-off points being checked? Could the assailants be “hitmen”? Their modus operandi seems a bit different from that which we see here.
