3. i'd sign yours but there's a mistake or two
gun laws could have stopped him or slowed him a dozen different ways- if his mother hadn't been allowed to own such a ridiculously powerful gun and so many bullets, for instance, say 2 six shot revolvers max, the total killed might have been 12, and the cops would have showed up while he was reloading.
also, what do you know about him playing video games beyond speculation in the media?
also, he definitely didn't steal the guns, unless you mean from his mother, which makes it her fault for not securing them properly, because there was no law about locking them up or keeping the rifle at a shooting range. but he could have bought them easily by driving to a gun show or on the internet, because 40% of guns sold get no background check at all.
also, the latest news is that he flipped out because his mother was going to commit him to an institution, whoops, there is no law preventing mentally ill people or homes with issues like that from keeping unlocked weapons.
also, you seem to suggest that the law against having guns in schools is a problem without considering that most teachers don't want to carry guns, or have armed guards in their schools, or that foolish ideas like putting guns in school teach children the the world is scary place and someone wants to come and shoot you all the time.
also, i just don't like your use of "feeding frenzy", that's a bad metaphor or whatever its called
so, i reviewed it, but i won't sign it.
you should sign the one i posted though! i really think it makes more sense
