Personally I find your post very disturbing. You casually throw out accusations of molestation like you are discussing the weather and then try to
support these allegations like they are facts. No talk of child molestation has been in the news and this is a product of your own imagination, and it
is obvious you have been mulling on it for long enough to put a label on all these people who may have had nothing to do with what you are saying.
Normally I would let something like this pass, but a person's life can be ruined by the very mention of allegations such as these whether they are
based in truth or not. You have no right to introduce this mess into the allready tragic situation we are dealing with.
I have a different idea on the possible blame for this horrendous act. He was a mentally disturbed young man, and was more likely than not on
psychotropic drugs that are entirely over-prescribed to todays children while we use video games to babysit our children that immerse them in real
life murdering situations with very realistic graphics and sound effects. Even shooting is not enough, they have incremental wounds to teach them to
shoot for the vital areas while the blood splashes on the floors and walls and they laugh in glee.
We have created a culture where violence and blood is the entertainment, and kids spend half their waking hours in front of a computer screen or tv
doing nothing but slaughtering people while they play Tour of Duty, Half Life and Grand Theft Auto while their parents sit around smoking cigarettes
and drinking instead of spending quality time with their children and teaching them the difference between right and wrong.
Instead of blaming responsible gun owners and the NRA for our children killing one another, we should instead look towards our lackadaisical attitudes
in child rearing and firearms safety. She should have been keeping those guns secured so no disturbed child could get at them. If that woman had lived
today she should be on trial for 30 counts of 1st degree murder for not keeping those weapons secured from her mentally ill son.
A properly secured AK47 or Bushmaster is no danger to anyone. The fault lies in letting a mentally ill young man have free access to them, along with
desensitizing their minds so killing becomes an act of entertainment. The combination of our entertainment and access to his parents guns was at fault
here, and I would bet half my paycheck that his video game collection was largely first person shooter games.
I am appalled at the way this whole thing is being trumpeted as a reason to change policy. Crack and heroin and meth are all illegal. Does that make a
d*** bit of difference to the criminals using them? NO IT DOES NOT!!!
More laws is not going to change anything but the right of law abiding citizens to defend themselves when they need to. Criminals will go on doing
whatever the heck they want to do, just like they always did.
