    Re: Sandy Hook families sue estate of shooter's mother

    These people want to feel some measure of control left over from a terrible event they had no control over. But there is nothing but time that will relieve their pain and continuing to want to *take action,* no matter how useless or misguided, is not going to fix it.

    They need to move on.

    With you, yes, because you're not motivated by moral outrage just political opportunism.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    If there was a law requiring such you may have a point.

    Otherwise no.
    No such responsibility exists.


    A gun is a tool.
    Just as a pencil is.
    So if he had gotten a hold of her pencil and stabbed people in the neck and they died, should she be sued because she didn't better secure her pencil?
    A hammer? A screw driver?
    A butcher knife?

    The concept is abhorrent.

    Thats why (had she lived) there would be no legal charges. This is a civil suit.

    Come on...be honest. Your comments are ridiculous. You HAVE to know that.

    You are speaking moon battery if you think I am not being honest.
    No they are not ridiculous.
    Holding someone responsible for the acts of another is ridiculous.

    It is the same thing as holding a homeowner responsible for a criminal harming their self on a ladder that had been left out.
    It is ridiculous.

    Wow...if you are being honest and dont think your comments are ridiculous, then maybe you are just mentally retarded and thats the best you have. In that case, I sincerely apologize. I really thought you were just acting that way.

    Your comment applies to your self.
    Head on over to the mirror and start apologizing.

    Yep.....It's the lawyers who will get the most benefit. Considering that the only one in the family to blame beside the shooter, was killed, it cannot be about punishment, unless they think they are punishing an estate. It's about money. It will not bring those children and teachers back.

    Very nice! The debate equivalent of 'I know you are but what am I?" How...1st grade of you. Did someone have to help you type that too?

    Look...if you are the parent or guardian of a child, especially one that you know is very clearly demonstrating violent and aggressive tendencies, then you have an obligation to take reasonable steps to secure both the childs safety and that of those around him. Leaving a weapon which can reasonably be expected to be used to harm large numbers of people in a non-secured environment and within easy access to that individual makes you at LEAST civilly liable. But where you jump off the 'stupid' reservation and land squarely into 'retarded' is when you want to make the inane comparison of an AR15 with high capacity magazines to pencils. And if you are too stupid to understand that, then you probably cant turn on a computer by yourself and have to have help putting your helmet on in the morning as well.
