Heston, Kansas Shooting

A woman gave the shooter the guns to do the shooting.  Granit, I am sure most people do not just give others gone with prior knowledge of a shooting but there needs to be harsher sentencing for straw purchasing or gifting guns to people.  I know that is standard practice but it seems like it’s easier to gift a gun than transfer ownership of a car. All gun transactions should be required to go through a licensed dealer.  In a case like this a shooting could have been prevented given his past history of domestic violence.  It will not solve all shootings but it would be a start and make people more accountable for whom they are selling guns, gifting or doing a straw purchase with.
