    How is this not attempted murder? And these are the cases that MORON Michael Day and the Commie Mommies site when trying to pass unconstitutional gun laws on the law abiding citizens. What they won’t tell you is this person was a prohibited person and couldn’t legally carry or own a firearm and no law would’ve prevented this because the idiot just broke a slew of laws in commission of his crime
