This took courage to share, and was painful to read. I cannot imagine the fear a parent in this aituation must have. And I have no doubt that our broken mental health and health insurance systems are indeed part of what we are witnessing in our world today.

However, it is this state of affairs PLUS the easy availability of automatic weapons and limitless rounds of ammunition that has resulted in repeated massacres and created a unique crisis. Unlike the author, Adam Lanza's mother was a gun enthusiast who took her boys to shooting ranges and kept guns in her home, including the military grade assault rifle and handguns that claimed the lives of 26 human beings in addition to her and her mentally ill son. I would ordinarily never want to judge the parenting skills of others or presume to know best how to deal with another parent's child. But when you have a child prone to violent or self destructive outbursts, you have a responsibility to change your lifestyle accordingly - for the sake of your self, your child, and the lives of others.
