Two different people in the thread. If you can, stay focused on one thing at a time.

For what it's worth, you initially didn't say she should have been charged (if she were alive). All you said was that she was a responsible firearms owner. It wasn't until after the fact that you decided to say "well the point I was trying to make was..." I'm sorry I wasn't able to read your mind.

I'm not going to reiterate things that have been said over and over again. Read them whenever you decide to. MediaArtist is right, this back and forth has grown tiresome. It'd be nice if we can talk about facts and not emotional response that is almost always illogical.

As for being all over the place, your "argument" has gone a long way and mutated quite a bit from your first post in this thread...
