Police say ex-con used stolen gun during rampage

GRAND RAPIDS -- A 34-year-old ex-con whose criminal past barred him from owning firearms used a stolen .40-caliber handgun to kill seven people and wound two others before taking his own life, a Grand Rapids police official said.

Investigators are trying to figure out what motivated Rodrick Dantzler to kill two former girlfriends, his 12-year-old daughter and four others related to them on Thursday, police Capt. Jeffrey Hertel said.

Dantzler wounded two other people and took three hostages before freeing them and shooting himself, police said.

The gun he used was stolen from a home in western Michigan's Kent County, which includes Grand Rapids, Hertel said.

The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is working to trace the gun's history, The Grand Rapids Press reported Sunday.

Dantzler has a criminal record dating back to a 1992 juvenile arrest for burglary, and his mother and at least three other women have sought protective orders against him, according to records.

So real quick just how would more gun control laws have helped????

To answer your question thats simple: If we removed all the guns no one would ever be injured, harmed, attacked, maimed, killed or even mentally scarred......oh wait that still happens without guns readily available too doesn't it.....

Anyone who kills a child and then kills themselves is nothing but a coward who got off too easy.

You forgot to mention the "stock" arguement the gunaphobes use in this particular scenario:

"Well.... IF we banned guns in the home, then the perpetrator of this horror wouldn't have a gun to steal to do his mayhem!"

EXCEPT! Purchasing a black market gun is almost as easy as purchasing drugs. Better yet, would probably be the same supplier source!

Saw a recent reality "Cop Show", Officers stated during the show that guns were a dime a dozen and in the neighborhoods (Newark, NJ) they were patroling, one could get a gun in a matter of minutes if wanted/needed.

Ban. No ban. Restrictions. No restrictions. Matters not. ANYONE who wants a gun can get one. Period.

Not that long ago a reporter went to anti gun England, and did a report, within a few hours he had purchased a gun and 20 rounds.... So the moral of this story is, if it is illegal, and you want it, you will be able to buy it.....
