Will this latest shooting bring to light the responsibility that gun owners have to keep their weapons from being stolen?

There are a number of ways to make sure that a gun cannot be stolen or used if stolen.

Will anyone address this problem?

Do people have that SAME responsibility for anything that's stolen and used in a crime?

Guy steals a car and slides into a bus of special needs kids.

You gonna tell the car owner he had a "responsibility" to keep that car from being stolen?

BTW, chances are if someone's going to take the time to "steal" guns to go on a killing spree they've figured out how to get around those "ways".

Not asking for a law, just noticing that people with kids and guns are failing at keeping the guns away from their kids. Maybe a very frequent public service announcement?

Anyway, this most recent parent admitted that he knew his son was feeling persecuted by his peers. Apparently knew of the romantic rebuke. And yet, left his weapons unsecured.

Has this parent been living under a rock? How could he not anticipate this?

Am pretty tired of the lame:“My kid would never...”. Seems the quieter they are, the more likely they are to blow.

Just hoping that more parents are learning from these awful mistakes of ignoring their teenager’s rage. 99% of the time, boys.

Sandy Hook shooter, for example, was encouraged to become proficient with guns because the mom thought it would be a great way for them to spend time together. Did she completely miss that her son was full of rage? Or did she think this was a great way to channel rage?

There are better ways to manage anger. Can we at least agree that when someone in your household is showing signs of extreme anger, that it is the responsibility of the other family members to keep weapons away from them? Especially if the angry person is a minor?

Why isn’t anyone listening to Melania? Wasn’t she supposed to fix this?

I remember a time where a kid who was "persecuted" by his peers and/or was "rebuked" romantically either sucked it up or perhaps cried. He didn't grab guns and go shooting up his school or make bombs out of crock-pots, he managed to deal with it.

That very reason is I say the problem isn't the gun, but the person(s). My father never locked up his guns. We were taught as kids to NEVER touch them unless given permission. The thought of "stealing" our father's guns, taking them to school, and killing our peers NEVER crossed our minds. Then again, we weren't raised in the narcissistic "hey look at me, I'm the center of the universe" Instagram age where everyone gets a trophy and we're all special. We weren't raised in a time where being a male and everything maleness was seen as bad and was treated like it was some sort of mental deficiency. Society cuts the proverbial nuts off young males by chastising what it is to be a teenage boy and squashing the "boy" things they do and you wonder why there's rage. Society promotes girls and females at the expense of boys and you wonder why they feel the way they do. When you take away what it is to be someone and eliminate their outlets to "blow off steam" what you get is a powder keg.

All that anger you speak of is the result of all these "good intentions" society, schools, academia, etc, have thrust upon up "for our own good" or in the interest of "fairness". We all know what road is paved with those and it's showing.

Lots of chatter about what not to allow our children to do, see or touch. But we aren't going to keep children away from anything. The root of the mass shooting problem is that shooting and killing is in their faces everyday through TV, movies and violent video games. But no one wants to admit it's the entertainment industry brainwashing our children in believing killing is normal. It's a cultural problem we're failing to address.

Violent tv & movies, violent video games and everything you mention is prevalent in other countries. But other countries do not hear about this kind of tragedy on a daily basis:

So I guess they will blame the devil and say it magically appeared in the kids hands?

Funny how irresponsible gun ownership just isn’t possible. Kids are supposed to be protected from detergent pods, but not guns?

And if you are saying we cannot possibly keep anything away from children, then why even go there about video games, tv and movies.

If you cannot deny your children access to firearms, then you certainly are not going to be able to shield them from media or the rest of those things you want to blame besides irresponsible gun ownership.

My car actually requires a key to allow someone to operate it.

If adults are being asked to prevent their children from indulging in drugs and alcohol, you’d think it would be just as important for adults to keep their children from accessing firearms.

Anyone who cannot agree with that has as little self control and lack of maturity as the children who need supervision.

Exactly. This kid wearing a shirt "Born to Kill" should have raised a red flag with his parents. Unfortunately, it did not. People with extreme rage issues, alcoholics or drug users should NEVER have access to a gun. This goes for kids and adults too.
