Lea the problem really here is that President Obama is picked apart by these GOP people that is inexcusable to begin with and the underlying reason is that he is a Black African American which they will never accept being a leader of the USA.
I am against, guns in the wrong hands - like the mother who killed her 2 teens, she was certainly not in the right mind.
The problem is they are NOT in the "wrong hands" until they kill someone ! (unless self defense) THEN it's too late ! This mother was probably law biding up until the second she shot her kids. Now some may say give gun buyers psychological tests before they can own. Well, they may be perfectly sane then and years later go "crazy" !
I think the best is to let them have 5-6 shot pistols and all the hunting rifles they want (limited shots). NO semi- or full automatics, and certainly no 50 caliber rifles ! That satisfies the 2nd Amendment (otherwise as some one suggested issue muskets), but limits fire power so they can shoot 20-30 people at one setting easily, like Tucson or Va Tech.
IF someone wants to argue they need 30 shots in self defense- then buy 5-6 handguns. That way if the Tucson idiot walked out in public with 6 handguns - he'd stick out like a sore thumb . . and his pants would probably fall down ! Problem solved !

Thats the problem Dave, she was law abiding. She bought a 38 revolver, not an auto with extended clips.
Where the system failed was due to she was not a felon, she did go through anger management classes for beating her daughter up 2 years before. Hence I believe she should have been placed on the NO Gun List at that time - after all if you have (anger problems) to begin with you should not have a gun. Makes sense to me.
And you would enforce this how? My gawd, carp, the bureaucrats can't keep track of so-called registered pedo's! Half the time, they turn up living across the street from elementary schools!
If you have an anger problem and go off on someone and a gun isn't handy, you'll use whatever you can get your hands on. Feces will occur no matter what. The key is to make it as hard as possible to do harm. Which is why it's what is controlled and hopefully kept off the open market even more than to whom it's sold.
