St. Louis Post-Dispatch - 08-13


Regarding recent news coverage of the July 28 shooting at a Gilroy, Calif., festival by a gunman, Santino William Legan: My jaw dropped when I read that the owner of Big Mikes Gun and Ammo shop in Nevada, the man who legally sold the 19-year-old gunman the semi-automatic assault rifle, claimed the boy “was acting happy and showed no reasons for concern” when they met. The owner posted he was “heartbroken this could ever happen.”
