  •  That's the opposite (1+ / 0-)

    of what I was saying. I wasn't implying mentally ill people slap people more at all. At least it wasn't my intent. Rather I was intending to say that it was the tool used that killed 20 people. If a mentally ill person - or anyone else - slaps someone that doesn't generally result in 20 deaths. It was the shooting of a gun.

    Sorry if it seemed like I was saying the opposite of that.

    •  Scottie Thomaston: the tool USED (0+ / 0-)

      by a MURDERER.

      Can nobody see this? It was NOT the firearm.  It was the SHOOTER.
      It was NOT the shooter's MOTHER.  It was the SHOOTER.

      Adam Lanza, for reasons we may never understand, MURDERED his mother. Then he stole her car and her firearms and he MURDERED 25 other people. Then he suicided.

      The shooter did the same thing a guy in China did with a knife, the same day. He attacked a school.The guy in China has been caught. The 18 children he mutilated survived -- or at least that's the last news I heard on the incident.

        ...that I mention that this is not the order. He did not kill his mother and then steal her guns.  He first stole a gun and then shot his mother with the gun. So there was a time when she was alive that he was able to access the guns.
