Unfortunately I think you're right. I had the same reaction while reading this article this morning. The Bradys will ignore two things about this story in order to sensationalize it:
1.) 2 guns were linked to crimes, yes. How many were not? What is the percentage?
2.) No matter the source, a tool ALWAYS carries with it the possibility of misuse. Why? BECAUSE CRIMINALS DON'T OBEY LAWS.
