There’s not a lot of detail on this story but OregonLive.com is reporting that criminal prosecution is being considered in the wake of the school shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon. Since the gunman took the coward’s way out the question is who are they considering prosecuting? I can’t say for certain but if I had to take a guess I would imagine it would be the relatives of Chris Harper-Mercer who allowed him to have their guns. Out of the 13 guns that were in his possession a few of them belonged to relatives. Not to mention that his mother was stockpiling her own arsenal.
While I respect the 2nd Amendment, guns aren’t something that should just be lent out to people like letting your neighbor borrow a hammer for a while.
