    Guns, they have nothing to do with it, the people who use them and are never held accountable by these white liberal judges. Trump and the NRA have nothing to do with these dysfunctional(s) killing each other, this is a culture problem which our black leaders refuse to acknowledge. Until we as a community accept whats really going on and have the painful conversation we need to have, this behavior will continue.
