    GUNS DON’T KILL, BULLETS DO.

    We cannot do anything about the guns that are out there and we cannot do anything to stop evil, but we can control ammunition that get to gun owners.

    The real perpetrator in this tragedy is the mother of the killer who allow guns in the hand of her son that she know was mentally ill. Too bad she is dead and cannot be held accountable as accomplice to the crime. She made her son a victim also.

    We should not be out there stalking and shooting defenseless animals for sport either.

    We also need to educate people on the many mentally illnesses. I live in a low income senior complex that allow the mentally ill, drug addicted and disabled over the age of 18 and some claim to have guns and it scares the hell out of me. Because there is no way I can prevent one from approaching me, putting a gun to my head and pulling the trigger even if I have a gun on my person.

    Obama, GOD did not call these children home. It was not their time. Evil took them way too soon out of their homes.
