On April 19, 1995, Timothy McVeigh lit a fuse to a 2.5 ton bomb in a Ryder rental truck composed of ammonium Nitrate fertilizer mixed with nitro methane. Two minutes later the bomb exploded: the Oklahoma City Federal Building was destroyed and 168 people, to include 19 children, were killed.
There was no hue and cry to ban, regulate or limit the production, purchase, capacity or use of fertilizer, race car fuel or trucks. There was no noticed outcry to sue Ryder, the maker of the truck or the maker of the fertilizer.
On September 11, 2001, Mohammed Atta and 18 others using box cutters, hijacked four aircraft and crashed three of them into the twin towers and the Pentagon. In one hour and 31 minutes, 2,996 people (to include an unknown number of children) were dead. There was no hue and cry to regulate or limit the production, purchase, capacity or use of box cutters or airplanes. There was no outcry to sue the manufactures of box cutters, or Boeing, the aircraft manufacturer whose aircraft were chosen because of their large fuel tanks, or to limit the size of fuel tanks in aircraft.
On December 12, 2012, Adam Lanza killed 20 children, six staff and himself with one rifle and two pistols in 14 minutes. There was an immediate and constant cry by some to ban, further regulate and limit the capacity of the tools that were misused to kill 27 people.
Adam Lanza was a loner, and killed himself when police arrived, so he can not be brought to justice, though some may say justice has been served.
If tools are the cause of so much death and suffering - especially for children, where is the outcry and push to ban, regulate or limit, trucks, fertilizer, race car fuel, box cutters and aircraft, as well as guns?
If people are the cause of so much death and suffering, especially for children, where is the outcry and push to develop programs to identify, help and treat individuals before they "go off the deep end," or when that fails, to execute those convicted of their crimes?
