further proof of need for better pediatric evaluations, proper diagnosis and better education in CT.

When reading the posts of the pro gun group they actually prove the need for background checks and mental health screening.

Pony Tail Steve:

You are further proof people should use BIRTH control.

Pony Tail Steve:

Its funny they still claim it was an AR 15. The mis information is incredible.
They kid was a nut, yet banning assault weapons that were never used will help.
