    His mother should have kept them locked up in a safe. Then he never would have been able to get them. and it's not the gun stores fault. If they are approved by the federal background check, then how is the store like wal mart supposed to know that your not mentally stable?

    Yes, she should have, but as a gun owner, she was very very irresponsible for taking her mentally ill son to gun ranges frequently. I dont know how gun ranges get away with it, but ive seen kids not even 13-14 yrs old out there shooting guns. U would think theyd have some type of age restriction, at least 18 in my opinion.

    My point is that the process of the screening itself must be more diligent. Your right, its not just the stores fault, its the fault of the federal background check database as well. Theres plenty of fingers to be pointed.

    I remember when I was in Boy Scouts, I got the shotgun and rifle merit badge. we had a couple of outings at a gun range, and my parents had to sign papers and I had to take a safety course before we could shoot.

    Obviously the solution is to ban grips, holes, scary looking guns, and tell people they can only put 7 bullets in a magazine/clip.
