  •  I believe she's been decscribed by those (5+ / 0-)

    who knew her as a "responsible" gun owner and there doesn't seem to be any question that she owned the guns legally. We may assume part of her reason for owning the guns was for self-protection.

    Whoa. This tells us a few things:

    Pro-gun arguments about "responsible" gun owners never letting this thing happen are a bunch of hooey.

    Self-protection reasons for owning guns are a bunch of hooey. I mean, that worked out real well for her, didn't it?

    Last but not least, if a LEGAL gun did this much damage - the the FUCKING LAWS ARE TOO WEAK! LET'S FUCKING CHANGE THEM!!!

      •  Yes, I agree. However I made the point (0+ / 0-)

        because so many RKBA'rs here are always blah-blahing about how any effort to stop innocent kids from being gunned down like this would "infringe"  and "punish" the "responsible" gun owners, whine, snivel.

        If that's their idea of a "responsible" gun owner, they badly need an upgrade in their thinking.
