  •  The mother might have had fewer weapons (6+ / 0-)

    if they had been more costly to her.  For starters.

    •  Probably not her. (0+ / 0-)

      She was getting $200K in alimony annually. That's why I have little sympathy for her. All the resources in the world and she wouldn't deal with the issues in her home. Now, 26 families are.

      An unsuccessful shoe bomb attack resulted in nine years of inconvenience for every flier in the country. It would be nice to think [this diabolical act] might lead to some similar inconveniences. --mrblifil

        her son's issues.  We don't even know if she stored the guns safely and her son had access to the gun safe.  Since there was reporting that she planned to move to Washington so he could attend a special school, she wasn't unaware she did need help with him.

        People at the gun range they frequented said they had not been there the last 6 months.  I just bet she never connected son-has-issues with guns-don't-belong-with-crazy.

        That's the thing about having a kid with "issues."  You start excusing all sorts of behavior that an outsider would not.  We can look at her and say "Oh my god why did she have guns in her house?"  She probably saw it as "a nice hobby that goes with my prepper lifestyle."  For which we can thank the gun industry for pushing all that fear around.

        Even if she had high gun liability insurance bills, she would have just paid them.
