Illinois Woman Kills Entire Family - Commits Suicide

The Examiner reports
Sara McMeen, 30 committed the most horrifying of crimes on Friday. She killed her three children, live-in boyfriend then turned the gun on herself. The devastation she left behind has affected the entire community of Emington, IL.

Why are guns not controlled so strictly that people like this cannot get them? Of course we couldn't prevent every single unhinged person from getting a gun, but is that a reason to not even try? Through proper screening and qualifying requirements, many unfit people would not have a gun handy when they snap. That's the solution.
I'll go further and say that anyone who opposes that solution must assume part of the responsibility for the daily and countless incidents that result. All that talk about "rights" is just talk. This is reality.
