    To Blog Refuter; Because then only the psyc hos like this will have guns. That is what you anti-gun people never seem to get. You can outlaw guns all day long and the psychos & law breakers will still have them. Do you actually think that outlawing guns is going to make guns go away? Do you really believe that? Jeeezzz.

    Refuter - What are the chances that the suspect owned that gun legally? Most crimes are done with guns that are not licensed.

    And why is it wrong to advocate stricter gun policies? Psychos like this guy do not need guns in their hands.

    News just broke that Gwatney has died. I don't like the sound of this.
