They Shoot Babies... Don't They?

I don't understand it... violent criminal gangs usually respond so well to community initiatives.

-- HOBBEMA, Alta. -- A 16-year-old boy is dead following a pair of gun complaints at an aboriginal reserve south of Edmonton that has been plagued by gang violence.

Investigators said they believe both incidents were gang related, and that they’ve detained two men for questioning.

In April, 23-month-old Asia Saddleback was wounded in a drive-by shooting involving gangs engaged in a turf war in the area.

Just last week, leaders from the four reserves announced a gun amnesty which they hoped would help reduce violence.

from what i've read about this place... you're not even safe sitting at your own kitchen table.

i'm certain though, they'll find a way to blame it on the conservative party.

So, the gun amnesty means that the guns won't be charged with any criminal offenses?
