A very simplistic and predictable position. You know none of the details as yet (nor do any of us really), yet you're ready to abdicate all responsabillity of the murderer, and place it all on the legal gun owner and homicide victim mother, in order to push an agenda that suits your politics, but will do nothing to stop this kind of event.
The death of personal responsabillity and accountabillity is, in my view, one of the greatest problems our society faces. We are not a collective, and there is no colelctive responsabillity for this horror, no matter how much some may wish to use it to demonize 30 million+ lawabiding gun owners.
