I am not sure why we are even discussing CCWs. Criminals arent even supposed to possess firearms and none of them have a CCW, yet every damn hood rat on the corner is packing.
Only those of us who follow the law obtain a CCW and carry legally. Laws that effect this will only effect those of us who follow the law. Wolves will continue to be wolves and carry illegally. Period.
Tougher gun laws hurt the innocen and protect the wolf. How many CCW permit holders have committed violent crimes with their weapons?
And yes, this kid got his guns from his mom, so that in part makes her part of the problem. The monster she raised is the monster that took her life. Where was his dad? A male child's number 1 influence in life is his father. From http://life.familyeducation.com/boys/fathers/55299.html
A boy learns from his father, without even realizing he's doing it, what a man is and does. He learns about masculinity, about what men like and don't like. Many adult men report that they either wanted to be "just like my dad"—or wanted to be his exact opposite. Fathers undoubtedly have a powerful influence on their growing sons, and it begins from the moment of birth.
My kids have been around firearms their whole lives, just like I was. I shot my first gun at age 5 or 6, shot my first doe at age 12 and killed a 10 point buck at 14 that still hangs on my wall today. I had my own rifle and shotgun in a gun rack in my bedroom from about age 10. Oh, and I played violent video games!!
We had rifle and archery club at school and we were permitted to bring our .22s and bows to school. We settled our differences with our knuckles back then, then we were buds again. Things are different now.
As others have said, social media, gratification, is what is feeding this. This kid is a nobody, mom and dad dont give a *censored*, so he goes out in a hail of gunfire and everyone knows his name. He goes from a nobody to a somebody overnight. And out media loves it, feeds off of it, and flashes his face everywhere. Instant immortality.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qM_WuQdg-sY
