If you have someone in your house on anti psychotic meds, and you think they really need to be committed.
LOCK UP YOUR GUNS.
A good gun safe is not that expensive.
Its possible the mother had the weapons locked up..since he was trying to purchase another gun but was refused since there was a 48 hour background check wait and he didnt want to wait. Its possible that the day of the shooting he somehow was able to break the lock or figure out the pass code to get them..otherwise why did he try to purchase another gun
The next day I met him at the local gunshop and we were waiting at the door when they opened up. I then helped transport a gun safe over to their house and my friend's sister brought all of the guns over so that we could secure them for her.
My brother in Law has one, and anyone who wants to get to his guns needs a blowtorch.
THe latest I heard tonight (12-19) is that the mom was away at a resort in NH 4 hours away by car, for two days before her murder and the school massacre.
If the kid had genius aspects, two days alone contemplating being committed to a mental institution might have been two days alone figuring out how to crack open a gun safe.
At this time, I don’t know if the guns were left out, or were “secured” in a safe. But a 20 year old, very crazy, very bright guy, might have spent two days cracking open the safe with drills, saws, crowbars, etc.
We’ll find out in a little while.
