Duncan: How did Loughner get a gun?

“From what I read, they said to the family that ‘he needs some help and we won’t take him back until you get him some help.’ I’m not quite sure what else that community college can do. … If I was the chancellor of that community college, I think that would have been my response. … My question is, lots of folks have mental issues. How’s he get a gun?”
