William Spengler killed two firefighters in Webster, N.Y. He also killed his 92-year-old grandmother more than 30 years ago. In both of these tragic incidents he used two different tools; one was a gun, the other was a hammer.

You could lay both of these tools side by side on a table and in a million years they would not harm anyone. The one common denominator was a deranged individual.

Many people are calling for a ban on guns, maybe we should look at hammers also. Or maybe we should look at doing something about deranged individuals.
