I certainly feel for her loss but trying to blame someone else for the shooter's actions is no different than filing a lawsuit against Ford for a drunk driving accident.This woman is no more responsible for this tragedy than the theater. Stricter laws on how a person obtains firearms can help lessen the chance for these types of attacks in the future.
