Ban assault rifles
To the Editor:
We try to rationalize and make sense out of the senseless. This was not evil at work. This was just another example of a flawed human being whose wiring malfunctioned. The poor mother was the unwitting accomplice, by making an assault weapon accessible to her flawed son.
I have not been a gun-control advocate until this moment. An assault rifle was the murder weapon. It makes one wonder that if these things were banned, would the attempt have been made at all?
