I wonder when the survivor will be well enough to be interviewed. Sure will be nice to know motive, so we can start talking about why this happened.

Mayor Webber, the rising gun violence rate HAS TO BE ADDRESSED BY THE CITY!

Police one are insufficient in determining the WHY and how to prevent gun violence.

I ask you to lead and institute real changes affecting increased gun violence in Sant Fe.

Matthew Arellano has been arrested as the perp in this crime. His 22 years old and has a laundry list of priors, which include being illegally in the possession of a firearm. Yet he was released as have many of these criminals running around with firearms in their possession. The legal system is totally inept when it comes to crime. The police arrest these people and the judges turn them loose. Many anti-gun advocates will shout that "guns are the problem"! No, it's a legal system that has a revolving door. These people don't buy guns from legal gun dealers. They get their from other criminals. Who are more than willing to sell the firearms to them. No background check required. Lock these people up and you will see a reduction in crime. There isn't much the Mayor can do until they change the catch and release system, but because the legislature has the power to make a change, they will not. Why! Because most of them are lawyers and many of them are trial lawyers. Follow the "Money"!!!

Leo Schwenn, thank you for your bravery. If the victim lives it will be because of you.

South Capitol is how it is spelled because the area just north of Cordova is So. Capitol--that is south of the state Capitol building.

Capital vs Capitol . Capital can be a noun or an adjective. Capital can refer to uppercase letters, accumulated wealth, or the city that serves as the seat of a country's or state's government. A capitol is a building in which the legislative body of government meets.

My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Mr. David Hernandez, and all those afflicted by the ever-increasing plague of violence in "America".

I commend Ms. Traxler for her consistently informative and well-written efforts.
