So is the government going to ban the gun used in this killing too? Its all the person behind the gun not the gun its self!!!!!

Another loose cannon, mentally unstable, he did the killings, what the hell happens with people during the Holiday Month of December. Seems to me if people aren't killing kids, they commit suicide. It is my opinion that this guy needed Psychiatric treatment way before the incident. But, in any case he won't be killing anybody else anymore. (He needed killing), again just my opinion!!!
