Brooklyn Park - Double Murder Suicide

a store employee, apparently fueled by jealousy, had stormed into the break room where two co-workers sat at 8:30 p.m. and shot them, killing one and fatally injuring the other, before fleeing to Minneapolis and turning the gun on himself.
I wonder if he could have been a legal gun owner up until the moment of the crime? Maybe Dog Gone will give us a follow-up report, I think this is in her neck of the woods.
One thing we can all agree on, in hindsight, is we'd have been better off if this guy hadn't been able to get a gun. Is that a safe assumption? In many cases, we could prevent guys like this from getting guns without interfering with the law-abiding gun owners. So why do those law-abiding gun owners resist common sense gun control at every opportunity?
