Get him to the range, and for all of us, show him some safety!
Could end up with a new shooting buddy too.

Sound like you just described the mother of the guy that just shot up that school and killed all those poor kid and teachers.

Me and my wife go shooting together once a week or every other week depending on how busy we are. I asked him to go to the range with us last week Saturday and he never showed up. Im gonna have to try again and see if he will go shooting with us.

It'd be good for him for sure. Don't get me wrong I started same way. Glad I joined this forum and learned as I got involved.

possibly, but I thought the media had people saying that she was an avid gun enthusiast, which typically means they are properly storing their firearms, not leaving them around for their mentally ill children to get to. but...without knowing her personally, I have no way of knowing exactly what she did.

Not quite. She went to a range frequently, perhaps regularly. She brought her son as well. It was a way for him to socialize, experience competency, and at least receive some measure of respect and acknowledgement. Apparently not enough.

I was referring to people that don't properly lock their guns up. That's why I quoted only the one section. He had way too easy access to her guns, no way they were locked up, and in case they were a mentally ill person should not know the combo to get to them. She is fully at fault for his actions. Wish she were around to punish. Then again, being murdered by your own son is pretty good punishment, just wish that part of it were televised... I'd have bought a ticket to the show.

That's a load of horsesh*t.
She was fully at fault?
You would buy a ticket to watch a son murder his mother?

I assume your exaggerating your points,, but listen to yourself bud.

No joke, I fully support public hangings be brought back. A real point that makes itself.

A picture is worth a thousand words. If people actually saw the repercussions of their actions they'd start to think twice. I firmly believe in publicized punishment. And much more extreme punishments for sure.

She was fully at fault from my understanding of the information provided. Now I may very well have missed something that would be key to my understanding and if you have anything enlightening to provide I'd appreciate it, but here's what I know.

She owned the gun's, trained a mentally ill person to fire them and had them in a situation/place accessible to, and I reiterate A MENTALLY UNSTABLE PERSON. You tell me where the fault lies...?
