... to and vast collection of guns mean nothing?

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/29/nyregion/search-warrants-r...

Yes, yes - we know playing video games is the key indicator, but does collecting and fetishising real guns amount to nothing at all?

In America, you gun-strokers have all become tremendous fans of identifying the mentally ill (yet somehow don't want laws change that would stop people from buying at gun shows where no background check happens anyway) - doncha think that maybe an obsessive attraction to guns might not just be a sign of mental illness in and of itself?

And to Adam Lanza's mother (if you could reply): do you think fomenting a home environment where guns were literally in the bedroom of a son who was obviously vastly emotionally challenged was a good idea? And awwwwww - how cute - you have him birthday money especially to go buy another gun. Your aiding and abetting his fascination turned out well for everyone, didn't it?

So - gun-strokers: is there ever any amount that adds up to too much gun? Or is every wide-eyed fruitcake who wants to amass a suburban arsenal A-OK in your book - until they start playing video games?
