Another argument for severe gun crackdown. Turns out guy who gunned down the firefighters in Webster, N.Y., had a young female friend buy them for him two years ago. He couldn't get them because he was ex-con--but found huge loophole by simply having her buy them. He was even with her when it happened, police say.
After the shootings she claimed someone had broken in and robbed the weapons (including the assault rifle and shotgun) but now she's been busted for buying them for the nutcase felon. She denies it but apparently he fingered her in his suicide note.
