The fate of Kate Steinle -- who met her untimely death at thehands of Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez -- is disheartening. She was taking a leisurelywalk with her father when she was shot in the chest by an illegal immigrant withan overwhelming criminal record. The suspect (Juan Francisco Lopez), is a known felonwho has been convicted 7 times and deported 5. He later admittedthat he was high on sleeping pills when he fatally shot Kate Steinle. Accordingto authorities, the victim was likely shot randomly since the witnesses did notoverhear any argument or dispute prior to the shooting. Then, along came DonaldTrump pointing fingers at the Obama administration for protecting dangerousillegal immigrants.

Although I do think there is some truth to what DonaldTrump is saying, the city council and the mayor of San Francisco are not theonly ones at fault. Yes, if the city council had handed over Juan Francisco toFederal Immigration officials to be deported immediately, the murder of would've been prevented. But, how long before another random shoot-outhappens in the streets?

It was not long ago when Dylann Roof went on a shootingspree in South Carolina, leaving 9 victims dead in the wake of the tragedy. Whatis the similarity between Juan Francisco Lopez and Dylann Roof? Both portrayserious criminal patterns, yet they were able to get their hands on agun. In fact, both of them have been charged with drug possession.

The onlydifference is that Juan Francisco is an illegal immigrant and Dylann Roof is aUnited States citizen. Despite the authorities revealing that the gun JuanFrancisco used to shoot Kate Steinle was a stolen gun belonging to a federalagent, the fact that acquiring a gun in the United States (both legally and illegally) is as easy as acquiring a kitchen knife is very disturbing.

A research study done by the Institute for Economicsand Peace based in Sydney states that 2 out of every 3 homicides in the U.S is causedby gunshot wounds. In comparison, 1 in every 13 homicides in the UK is facilitatedby a gun. That's a shocking statistic, especially when you consider that violent crimes inthe UK almost double the number in the United States.

As long as the public isaccustomed to guns, felons will always find loop holes to acquire them. Insteadof Donald Trump looking at one side of the picture and only blaming the illegalMexican immigrants, he should campaign for a strict gun control policy toreduce the high homicide rate in the United States.
