So glad this wasn't a CCWer, but I'm guessing a rifle was involved...probably an SKS or similar.
I'm not for wanton seizing of legally-owned weapons, but when you've got a history of mental problems AND a history of the police having to step in, maybe someone should be making sure people like this don't have access. He just got out of jail, for crying out loud. I know, fine line.
Finally we have a family member (the perpetrator's mother, no less) who ISN'T crying about what a good boy he was and how he was 'turning his life around' and all the usual crap. I have sympathy for this woman; in spite of all your efforts you can't predict how your children will turn out. Rather than hide her head in the sand, she publicly recognizes that her son has problems, and that the victims were innocent.
Our justice system needs work.
