    reason I count Nancy Lanza as a victim.  I don't know if the facts have been made public regarding what efforts she did or didn't make to keep her guns safe.  I suspect that she could have done more to take the guns out of the equation, as you suggest.  If only one thing comes out of this situation, I would hope for more awareness about the need to keep guns secure if you are going to have them around.  Personally, I do not know how it would be possible to keep guns securely in a home if the household contains someone who is disturbed, suicidal, or enraged for some reason.  And, in these troubled times, how many of us can say that we don't know anyone who might go over the edge?  I try not to blame Nancy Lanza, because she evidently was trying to get help for her son--but I also feel sick when I think that she inadvertently provided the means for her son to do what he did.
