In yet another sign that our county's gun laws might need reform, the father of one of the victims from the Fisherman's Wharf shooting deaths said today that the murder of his son is "proof" that our gun laws are too lax.

"Bao Ying Chu said the shooting deaths of his son, Qiong Han Chu, 30, and fellow shop employee Feng Ping Ou, 30, were an outgrowth of U.S. laws that make guns widely available," reports The Chronicle. " 'That's what I'm most upset about,' the Chinese immigrant, speaking in his native Taishan dialect, said in a brief phone interview from his San Francisco home."

According The Examiner, the double homicide was sparked by rivaling merchants selling similar counterfeit scarves and purses.
