I am not a gun collector and I don't own what they are referring to as an assault rifle but if I did I would not give it up. Making citizens relinquish there weapons, would be like making us give up our cars because some silly teenager caused an accident while they were texting. The answer to this problem is educating people before they can own one. Another thing that would help is stricter applications to own one. Oh and speaking of this terrible shooting the guns were in the mothers name and I mean no disrespect when I say this but she knew her son was mentally ill so she should have locked her weapons in a gun safe so her son could not have used them.
