What a real tragedy that did not have to occur. I think they should change their name from "Blessing" to "Curse".

My heart goes out to the victims' families.

The police pumped that trailer full of bullets and they're considered "competent." The cops killed him for revenge, not self-defense. But if it were me that was being shot at, I would've done the same thing.

Maybe I'm wrong but she didn't buy the gun. She knew that he shouldn't have it and lied to police about it. Thus, she only got 5 years. I think that it is a reasonable sentence considering that she was simply an enabler. Her Dad on the other hand may be looking at more than 5 years since he supposedly bought the gun.

I think this also shows that no matter what kind of laws you have in place, insane people and criminals are going to get guns.

Guns kill people. It's a proven fact.

If you disagree, then this woman should walk free. She didn't pull the trigger.

The system failed the lunatic, so go after county commissioners, mental health officials, Governor Kasich...

Aiding and Abetting with gun specifications should be more than 5 years. He too should be thrown away as well. Maybe if they actually enforced the current laws with regards to guns, there would not be as many people killing using guns.

Yep, just as those who want drugs will be able to get drugs. Until the police can keep the streets free from drugs, they will not be able to keep guns from the streets. If they outlaw guns here, they will just be imported from other countries along with the drugs. So then only the criminals will have them.

Guns do not kill people, its the person behind the trigger that kills people. Get it straight. With your train of thought you might as well include cars as well. I know plenty of car accidents that kill people, oh wait cars are operated by people....hmmm..so are weapons which are also used everyday in a safe manner and not used in the commission of a crime
