Cry me a River. An elderly man with health problems, he is just a poor victim of all this?
When is Society going to treat these MONSTERS for what they are.
Saying the victim is a straight A student does not address the psychological issues that she has and will face her entire life.

I dated a girl in my early 30's that had been raped at 19. She was not over it, Murder of the Soul, is very rarely gotten over, if ever.
Scumbags is an understatement, nothing but feral animals that need to be locked up forever.

"I consider a person who was safely in his house who then retrieves a firearm and exits the safety of his house to confront some perceived danger as both fearful and unhinged."
I totally agree and so does the applicable Laws on this subject.
At February 18, 2014 at 6:24 p.m., I stated the guy needs a 5150, that would be a Mental Health Hold for 72 hours but, I see no reason because we have bad actors that the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution should be thrown in the trash.
You want to throw out the 2nd Amendment and I was asking what other Amendments do you consider "not worthy" of your Utopian Dream or is only the 2nd?
You are aware the Constitution was modeled after Natural Law?

Please tells us what your "Utopia" looks like and how you plan to deal with preceived or actual Bad Actors.
Adolf Hitler had a Utopia of a Pure Aryan Race and his bad actors were Jews, Gypsies and others. Stalin had a Workers Utopia and everyone else had to be purged. Mao had another Utopia and more had to be purged. Jim Jones had a religious Utopia and they all had to die. Islamists have another Utopia and more had to die.
Does your Utopia include elimination of the 1st Amendment so American Groups that have idealogies different from you can be suppressed? What parts of the Press are to be suppressed?
Does you Utopia include the elimination of the 4th Amendment so all American electronic communication must be monitored, so bad actors cannot use it? Oh wait that is already being done.
Please tell us what Amendments and Civil Liberties make the cut in your Utopia?
Maybe the Constitution just needs to be repealed and a purge take place.
Long live the Eckermann Utopia - NOT.

Exchange Students need a local "emersion class" before they head off into our great outdoors. Tea Fire comes to mind. Perhaps the local colleges would make in their responsibility to offer such a class for their exchange students.

My Grandfather smoked for 40 years and quit in the early 60's cold turkey, when the first health advisories were issued, he died at 92. My Father smoked 4 packs a day for 40 years, quit in the 1980's cold turkey. My Grandfather and Father both drank two drinks every night of their adult lives. Grandfather and Father both died of the surgical complications from a broken hip.
My best friend died one month after his 51st birthday of lung cancer, he was a heavy smoker.
Tobacco/Booze is bad for the vast majority of people, that is a given, but genetically some seem to get a pass. The delta-34 gene gave carriers a free pass from the Black Death.
As a Society I fear the "Public Safety" mantra is being pushed to extremes.
Now they want to tax/ban soft drinks and fast food.
Sure HFCS is bad for you, so limit your intake.
E-cancer sticks seem to be a good way for people to enjoy nicotine without bothering others, second hand smoke is just bad.
Trying to regulate every single minutia of human behavior for a Utopian Dream is a lesson in futility.
Warren Zevon said, "Life will kill you", it sure killed him.
Many States regulate bars much more severely than California, a good idea.
Reasonable Regulation is a slippery slope, depends on who is doing the reasoning.
I don't smoke, secondhand smoke makes me ill, I don't gamble, I do enjoy booze in the comfort of my own home, I do eat fast food but very rarely.
Once we taught Self Actualization, Character Building, Social Responsibility and Critical Thinking rather than Be the Sheep.
I would propose most of the Society's ill's are a direct result of what our schools are teaching.
Binge drinking, in my opinion, is the result of the hoplessness the young feel over the massive debt their Grandparents and Parents have put on their backs. Definitely needs to be a Constitutional Amendment that commands each generation to pay it's own bills and not saddle the next with it.
I always liked the Peggy Lee song, " If thats all their is, then lets go dancing, break out the booze and have a ball"
I would binge drink too if I had a $100,000.00 debt around my neck at birth.
