DEM LAWMAKER: OBAMA MUST ‘EXPLOIT’ SCHOOL SHOOTING TO GET GUN CONTROL. Never waste a crisis. We’d like to know what gun control would have prevented this tragendy? It’s now being alleged the shooter was a whacked-out Goth, that he tried to purchase a gun and was denied, it appears he stole the guns from his mother, had asberger’s syndrome and “another disorder.” Absent that he could have gone to Newark and bought guns on the black market on about any street corner. It appears that nothing short of divine intervention would have stopped this.
