  1. This is what makes it look bad for honest,kind,caring,loving,good people to be able to carry a gun for their family and self for protection.This is an act of an unfit man to own or carry a gun.How can you weed out these kind of people? I don’t think any one has the answer.Thank God he didn’t shoot any one.
