Holy f-ing cow! While I still believe the revelation is just speculation at this time, it looks like our crazy mass murderer decided to kill those innocent people because he was worried about being committed.
NEWTOWN, Conn. – The gunman who slaughtered 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school may have snapped because his mother was planning to commit him to a psychiatric facility, according to a lifelong resident of the area who was familiar with the killer’s family and several of the victims’ families.
So, let me get this straight. Mom decides the kid is bonkers and needs to be locked up, and he snaps and kills her, then kills a bunch of other people. No law or firearm ban in the world would have fucking stopped someone this insane from committing harm out of anger once they snapped. Anyone pretending otherwise is desperately stupid. All the laws to deal with this were in place and they didn’t matter. There is a lesson here: crazy and evil people are always going to have the law applied to them retroactively, because nothing short of the ability to predict the future will prevent these people from doing their crazy.
But all you gun grabbers can keep pretending the problem is guns and that disarming good people after someone evil and crazy commits a horrible act will prevent other evil and insane people from doing more of the same.
