Gun Control is important, but how about also--Controlling Guns!

A 39 year-old father of two, Angel Rojas (pictured below with his wife) is dead because a 14 year-old kid with a gun missed his target on a Brooklyn city bus. Witnesses said the kid's gun was bigger than him and sounded like a cannon when he fired multiple shots at a rival inside the bus.

So once again, how easy was it for this young 14 year-old boy to get the gun? Probably as simple as getting a can of soda from the local store. It seems like the iron pipeline is still thriving, and making a literal killing in a city with one of the toughest gun laws in the nation. Until we stop the iron pipeline--until we stop the influx of illegal guns from states with weak gun laws that flow like a raging Tsunami into the streets of Brooklyn, Bronx, Chicago, L.A., and countless other cities, there will be many, many more Angel Rojas' who will leave wives and children barren and alone. 

Gun Control is important, but just as important is, Controlling the Guns! #stoptheironpipeline

Man, 39, killed by teen gunman in B15 bus shooting in Brooklyn

A 14-year-old fiend turned a city bus into a murder scene in the flash of a gun Thursday when his bullet meant for a rival killed an innocent Brooklyn dad instead, sources said.
Angel Rojas, 39, was sitting on the B15 when the kid shot up the bus at about 6:20 p.m. at Marcus Garvey Blvd. near Greene Ave. in Bedford-Stuyvesant, cops said. Rojas, the married father of two, was shot in the back of the head.

The alleged killer and some other teens were in the rear of Brooklyn-to-JFK bus No. 4184 when an apparent rival boarded and started walking toward them, sources said.
“One kid pulls out a gun and he lets off a couple of rounds,” a source said. “He’s running out of the bus, still letting rounds go, and this poor guy gets shot in the back of the head. He wasn’t the intended victim.”
