This killer got the guns from his mother who was by all reports a duly licensed, sane and law abiding person. Enacting yet another law for the criminals and insane to ignore is an exercise in futility.
I agree that more power and resources should be devoted to identfying and confining whackjobs whether their parents consent to it or not. Even then that wouldn't have helped in this case as the POS was never violent before.
Its 3 hundred million. I left out the "hundred" on accident.
Might as well be a billion b.c there is no way we are ever going to eliminate guns and if someone wants one bad enough they will get one. No doubt about it.
