true he did steal the guns. but I think banning guns from everyone but law enforcement and military is hardly the answer.
I never said stricter gun laws was the perfect answer. in this case gun laws in general had nothing to do with the situation but there have been other cases where stricter gun laws might have prevented the situation.
for example the batman movie shooting. that guy legally acquired his guns.
there is no perfect answer. but as long as people are aquiring weapons illegally do you really wanna take away guns from us citizens meaning less people able to defend against such people? there are only so many police and military to go around.
