brooklyngirl commented on the blog post Ready, Shoot, Aim and Wayne LaPierre’s World of Demons
Who defines who the “good guys” are and who the “bad guys” are? Are we going to require them to wear white hats and black hats? Or is LaPierre saying he has changed his mind about background checks? And how does he expect us to institute a national database on mental illness? Would he support its use to deny people the right to buy guns?
Here’s what I haven’t heard discussed:
Nancy Lanza knew her son had serious mental problems, to the point where she kept him home from school.
Nancy Lanza had several legal semi-automatic guns in her home.
Nancy Lanza taught her mentally unstable son how to use those guns because she thought he would develop a sense of “responsibility.”
Nancy Lanza was killed by her mentally unstable son with one of her own guns.
I’d like to know LaPierre’s reaction to that.
