Keith Ratliff = modern day Dr. Frankenstein!

Keith Ratliff was murdered by the very monster he helped create, the proliferation of weapons of mass death!

Some have questioned my empathy for the man who was murdered by a gun shot, that very person (Keith Ratliff) was a big part of the reason we have more than 11,000 gun deaths every year in America. It's not that I don't have any empathy for a person murdered, rather I have much more empathy for all of the innocent people who were murdered in part because of the actions of Keith Ratliff.

Proliferation of assault weapons leaves our police out-gunned!
