I went to the gun store with my boss, he wants a gun for home defense, and he couldn't decide what he wanted. He said that he just wanted to buy a gun and a safe and stick it in there and be done. I told him that I wouldn't let him do that and that we would go shooting together.

A neighbor of mine who is an experienced shooter and reloader has carried a Taurus 380 in his pocket for years. He bought a 100 pack of WWB ammo when he got the Taurus. I would bet he has 50 rounds left of the original box of ammo.

He loves his Howa 300 mag. He will drive all across the state to shoot his rifle. Yet the gun that will most likely be used in a self defense situation never gets fired. He says the Taurus is reliable and it has never given him a problem. I guess it hasn't since it hasn't been shot enough to break it in.

Now hold on there, you dont know all the facts yet. And even locked up, a determined individual in most cases can still access the gun, if they are determined enough. There is ALWAYS a way to circumvent or break any security measure. Any and every safe can be cracked, it takes determination and knowledge, but not much. (I have a background in security)

We're talking about a mentally challenged person here. Come on man. Drop the liberal love, no excuses here!

Geez fella, Ease off. You know nothing about the woman or her habits.
The guy you are referring to as "mentally challenged" was smart enough, by all accounts, to overwhelm the security system at the school - to effectively "break in". Doesn't sound too "stupid".
You make a lot of off the cuff judgements - judgements concerning everyone, as you, no doubt, will me - that are questionable at best.
Sling it...

You do realize that mentally challenged and stupid don't mean the same think right. I know mentally challenged people who are intelligent. And btw he didn't pull a mission impossible type entry, he blasted his way in. Any idiot can do that.

I am sick of hearing people talk about the mentally ill. Evil is evil. I dont care what a doctor says about someones ability to stand trial. Anyone that kills a bunch of kids deserves to die. Anyone that goes into a theatre and shoots people deserves to die. We have got to stop making excuses for the evil things that people do.

And the mother was a victim. Since when do we convict victims. Beyond the box...there is something wrong with you.

I agree with that statement, evil is evil. To walk into a school and murder a bunch of innocent children means you're mentally ill, otherwise it would've never crossed your mind. That being said, the murderer deserved to die.

I also think the mother was partly to blame. If you know your son is messed up in the head why leave your guns anywhere but a safe?
