Reader: Dr. Lynne Fenton lawsuit like blaming Ford for drunk driving

Our post about the wife of an Aurora theater shooting victim suing Dr. Lynne Fenton, a psychiatrist who treated accused killer James Holmes, prompted posts that mixed compassion for her loss with doubts about the effectiveness of her legal actions.

Here's a representative example.

Dan Johnson writes:

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.
