I wasn't planning on two blog posts this morning (before 4 AM!), but this absolutely demands a look:
Lifelong West Philadelphia resident Latisha Moore, 27, said she believes that if it weren't for Philadelphia's lack of gun control, the father of her child wouldn't be sitting behind bars for murder.So which was it--self-defense, or murder? Either way, it's not a lack of gun laws that caused him to either save his own life (and be imprisoned unjustly), or murder someone.
"He never had a gun," Moore said. "He only got one because everyone else has them."
The father of Moore's three-year-old son shot and killed another man in self-defense while under the influence of alcohol, according to Moore.
