Ms. Marsden - You wrote "Is it too much to ask that every person wanting to possess a firearm be subject to a battery of tests -- everything from intelligence and emotional quotient exams to a psychological evaluation and background check? "
Did you miss the FACT that he did not purchase the weapons himself, that he a) murdered his mother (broke a law), b) stole the weapons (broke another law), c) carried the guns on to school property (broke YET ANOTHER LAW, I could go on with 38 more times he broke the law).
How, exactly, would "every person wanting to possess a firearm be subject to a battery of tests" have stopped him?????
He broke the law 41 times, he was not concerned with following any laws.
