I believe only the mother and that psychopath were the only 2 to live in that house, since the brother was in NJ and the father lived somewhere else.
If the mother only had 1 pistol (just to protect herself) maybe there would only be 5 victims, TOPS. But why does a house that only have 2 people in it need 3 automatic weapons?
Definitely overkill and irresponsible of the mother to have those guns laying around like that. No words for that psychopath. I think the gun owners themselves need to regulate the guns they have in their possession.
This is like if I have a son that gets drunk, and I leave bottles of Grey Goose and other liquors on top of the table with my car keys as well.
I think you are confusing automatic with semi-automatic. Automatic is when you hold the trigger and it continually fires, semi-auto is when you pull the trigger and it recoils and injects another round into the chamber and is ready to be fired again. I have many guns and all registered to me and locked in my safe. I grew up on a farm and did a lot of hunting with my dad and grandpa, some of the best memories I have is spending time with them doing that. My friends and I regularly get together and shoot... Its a great time. You can't take the rights away from law abiding citizens just because of a few crazy people. I do agree however that people need to be more safe in how they store their firearms and I think there should be a psychiatric evaluation before they can purchase any sort of weaponry. Though I also think the same thing of anyone who can vote or drive a car.
