    Well, there is evidence that these sorts of mass killers seem to gravitate to places known for anti weapons policies.

    Surely there is something out there that one can lock guns away in. You can buy everything else here in the USA.

    How about a gun safe?

    I understand she liked to target shoot, but she was also aware her son was having major issues. When not in use her weapons should have been in a locked gun safe. But that's hindsight. At the time I'm sure it never occurred to her the kid could do anything like what he did.

    Edit: I see from another response of yours you don't get that gun safes come in many sizes. There are many models that fit rifles.

    I have several such safes since I have lots of rifles and shotguns

    I don't get it.

    So, now you are not only attacking the tool used but you want to put the blame on the killers mother now? Tell me, Was it his mother that passed or voted for politicians who passed the string of laws that left these children vulnerable with no adults around them with the means of protecting them?

    Because she liked shooting them. Because she was responsible and taught her children gun safety. Because a child, or in this case an adult child who could buy that "Bushmaster type" rifle on his own, who is taught proper gun handling and safety has no reason to be locked away from the families guns.

    Every single person who has ever voted for the politicians that passed the policies and laws that left these children unprotected bears responsibility for creating the conditions that allowed this to happen. Those children's blood is upon their hands and soul also. They knew that such things have happened and could happen again, but insisted on laws that striped away the protection of these children instead of using a modicum of logic and providing these children with the protections they should of had.

    You, the gun hater, are an accessory to the murder of these children. Now go pat yourself on the back with your own bloody hand.

    I don't think so. Most make causal relationship errors. To many willing suspend disbelief to accept questionable data. This is done on both sides btw(I'm sure this part will be missed).

    Duh, less chance of getting shot themselves before they complete their spree. Kind of hard to go on a spree where people are shooting at you.

    Less difficult than you might think. It's more difficult to actually respond once the shooting starts.
