    What was this woman thinking to house so many guns in her home? Why did she feel the need to be so surrounded? Guess it's too late to find out now.
    Maybe she liked guns. I like ukuleles, so I have a lot of them. I like to be surrounded by ukuleles.

    Beats me how someone could lose a small child to an act of madness then turn around and take legal action. Maybe grief is surpassed by greed. How much MONEY does it take to ease the life long sorrow?

    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.
    This is unreasonable. A gun is a specific kind of tool - a weapon - and by design it is meant to kill. A hammer can be used to kill but that is not its design difference.

    Would you leave a loaded firearm on your kitchen table and invite a bunch of complete strangers in? How about a pencil? They are different and must be treated differently.

    Not at all.

    Yes, there are loaded guns laying around the house, as there are pencils.

    There is a loaded .357 right next to this laptop.

    No strangers are allowed in for any reason.

    No it isn't unreasonable.
    Trying to sue his mothers estate is unreasonable.
    She is not responsible for his actions. He is.
    It doesn't matter one bit if her guns were out. He took what wasn't his to take. He stole from her. That is on him, not her.


    To take this even further to it's absurd conclusion ...
    [sarcasm]Hell her estate should be sued for bringing him into the world in the first place. But not for that, this would never had happened.[/sarcasm]

    Yea, it's theft, and it is illegal.

    No, mentally challenged individuals should not be banned; however, the people around them should be more cautious. Why would an intelligent mother leave guns within the reach of a young insecure son? Now I realize not all people with Aspergers Syndrome which is what Adam Lanza had, are violent, and most are decent and sometimes unusually bright, above average even, still, I think it was wrong of the mother to be surrounded by such weapons, especially a weapon that can kill so many in one shooting without reloading
