  1. I’m sure that it was all a terrible misunderstanding, regular people just going through their regular work night routines, dinner homework with their kids etc…, when all of a sudden there was an awful accident involving a safely secured firearm….. snark…………….

    • Sounds like you knew this poor soul. Do you know what happened? Was it a random sense of violence?

  2. You people live on la la land. If a person is going to commit a crime with the use of a weapon, the individual is not going to use a weapon registered in his name!! Weapon trafficking into California is big business nowadays.

  3. Praying for all the family’s affected by this tragedy. Regardless on how or why his life was lost that will not change the fact that a life was lost. He is just a statistic to judgemental people that did not know him and rely on the news to form opions. But to US he was family and will always remain in our hearts.

    Rest Easy Alvin you will be truly missed.
