    We know now that Lanza's mother gave him the guns he used. Don't try to argue that. Just like the grandfather of one of the Columbine shooters who gave his g'son the guns he used.

    But, here's couple of different pov's.

    Which is right? Neither? Both?

    As I've read accounts, his mother was a bitch from hell. Without any guns that's enough to drive a person mad.

    What constitutes ‘easy access to guns’?

    ‘Easy access’ to guns by whom?

    Children?

    The mentally ill?

    Convicted felons?

    If there’s to be a good faith discussion of this, fundamental terms need to be defined.

    pharmaceutical companies share much of the blame..they have been caught knowingly covering up the violent and aggressive behaviours and suicides caused by these drugs

    The British government ban for use of all but one SSRI antidepressant drug in children and teens (Dec 10, 2003) is reverberating wherever these drugs are widely prescribed. The action was taken after an independent committee of experts examined the raw data from controlled clinical trials that had been conducted by these drugs' manufacturers. The evidence shows that contrary to the claims made by their promoters, SSRIs are neither effective against depression in children, nor safe. The hazards posed by SSRIs--of which the most serious is self-harm and aggression toward others--had been detected during company controlled clinical trials, but the hazards were concealed--even in published reports in academic journals. Thus, doctors who prescribed the drugs and patients and families for whom they have been prescribed were kept in the dark.

    So, this also applies with the "Fast n' Furious" issue. Ok then.

    So what are you asking..... another compound question... lol?

    his mother did not "give him the guns" ... she may have taught him about guns and to shoot.... but that is not "giving him the guns" So your "don't try and argue that" is another load of crap.

    as to who is responsible.... the shooter is responsible.

    Both of your examples are gun control examples.....so in my opinion, neither is right.
