Need for the dad or brother to step up with an accurate story. Mom may have been threatening Adam with hospitalization, certainly she was frustrated and possibly even a tad tetched herself.<quoted text>
The CT murderer's mother was apparently trying to have her son committed to a mental institution, but was unable to do so.
Addressing that problem would be far more effective than trying to disarm honest American citizens. Particularly defenseless women.
She brought the weapons into the home, Adam had his own car and his own walking around money, mom trusted him to a certain degree leaving him on his own etc.
That's not going to be the family to model federal law around.
