Laws, gun or otherwise, do not prevent evil criminal acts. Theft is illegal (he stole the guns and his mother's car). Murder is illegal ( he killed 20 children and at least 8 adults). carrying a gun onto school premises is illegal in CT (that didn't seem to matter to him either) - Now, James, explain how a law served, or would serve, to protect any one of the victims. Or would you prefer to shift the murderer's guilt over to his mother and the inanimate objects he used to perpetrate his actions?
