Blame deinstitutionalization, not guns

Guns don’t kill people, crazy people who don’t want to get locked up kill people:

The gunman who slaughtered 20 children and six adults at a
Connecticut elementary school may have snapped because his mother was
planning to commit him to a psychiatric facility, according to a
lifelong resident of the area who was familiar with the killer’s family

Adam Lanza, 20, targeted Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown
after killing his mother early Friday because he believed she loved the
school “more than she loved him,” said Joshua Flashman, 25, who grew up
not far from where the shooting took place. Flashman, a U.S. Marine, is
the son of a pastor at an area church where many of the victims’
families worship.

“From what I’ve been told, Adam was aware of her petitioning the
court for conservatorship and (her) plans to have him committed,”
Flashman told “Adam was apparently very upset about this.
He thought she just wanted to send him away. From what I understand, he
was really, really angry. I think this could have been it, what set him

Sometimes, it really is just the crazy.  And if you let the confirmed crazies run around free until they kill someone, you’re assured that eventually some of them are going to do it.
