My Thoughts On the Murders in Oregon

No sooner had the deranged gunman been given justice yesterday and the President was on the air talking about tighter gun control laws.  It is not known at this time who this evil person was able to get three handguns and a rifle, but Obama wants tighter controls.  Did the ban on handguns in Chicago eliminate murders committed with handguns?  NO.

Today, others on a social networking site are calling for gun control.  Yet, still more people are killed in automobile crashes and no one calls for a ban on cars.

My heart goes out to the families of the murdered and injured people.  I also turn a concerned eye towards this gunman’s family who failed to see he had issues.  My guess at this point is since he used a screen name that referred to lithium, he had already been diagnosed as a bipolar.  This would also indicate that his family knew he had mental issues and chose to ignore them.  It he was mental, someone either ignored the process for gun sales, or he acquired the guns illegally (which is where the main problem in America is, people illegally gaining access to a firearm to commit crimes).
