I do not mean to sound crass or dismissive, but this is all too common in certain Atlanta communities. I think this is a prime reason that many in the community are calling for more gun control and are very supportive of Mr. Obama’s proposed policies. I personally believe there are a number of other factors that need to be looked at beyond gun control, but I suppose you can see why many parents may support it.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.
