    hundreds of good, responsible people are deciding, enough is enough, as I commented yesterday:

    And btw, wasn't Ms. Lanza described as a responsible gun owner? She ended up arming a mass murderer. If you want to base your argument on that, we really need to up the bar of responsible gun ownership.

    •  Lanza's problem wasn't how she handled her guns (1+ / 0-)

      It was about how she handled her son - who should have been under serious psychological care. But, again, since that's unavailable for a multitude of reasons to many people dealing with mentally ill relatives (see the brilliant "I am Adam Lanza's Mother" diary).
      Had she put him under proper treatment - and done a better job of keeping him away from her guns - her entire gun collection would today have a body count of 0.

      •  But she didn't. To reflect your argument, (0+ / 0-)

        if she had not had the guns, or if she had secured them so he couldn't get them, then he could have gone on playing video games in the basement and everyone in Sandy Hook would have had a nice day.
