This kid was known to have no feelings, either emotional or physical.<quoted text>
Well, now I'm a Moron.... thanks...
a home made bomb would have done more damage. Ban Fertilizer, rental trucks, ammonia, crazy people.
The real issue is that crazy bastards will always find a way to create the most damage and simply banning assault weapons may not be the answer. How long was this guy acting strangely? what help was or was not available? why did no one see him coming unravelled?
It's far too easy to point at the weapons and blame an inanimate object. But the guns did not use themselves.
One of his teachers said that he had to be watched closely when the class was soldering, because he would burn himself and not feel it.
His condition was pretty well known for quite some time.
Why his mother thought it was wise to keep guns is beyond me, but it was reported that she was a prepper.
