i feel SO safe! NOT

i don't understand what's up with the guns in hartford. so many murders this year. over sixteen shootings (something like that) in LESS THAN A MONTH. i am posting this story because i work VERY close to where this happened. i do mean VERY close. i don't fault the police. they ARE a presence in the neighborhood. i blame the stupid-ass people themselves. the ones that think guns are a way of life. THEY'RE NOT!

Hartford police Wednesday night arrested four men who were with a group that had fired shots at others during a fight on Park Street, authorities said.No one was injured in the gunfire, which continued as a car sped from the scene with two officers running after it. Patrol officers used their cars to box in the car on Capitol Avenue - down the block from the state Capitol - and confiscated a sawed-off 12-gauge shotgun, a .22-caliber semiautomatic pistol and a small amount of drugs."The more guns we get off the streets, the more assurances we have that people will have a happy summer," Sgt. Francis Perrone said.The first burst of gunfire was reported about 7:40 p.m. Two officers on foot patrol on Park Street - Officers Alexander Estrella and Rebecca O'Shea - saw people arguing and heard the shots. ..
