Eric Thompson sells guns online through his more than 100 websites. The gunman who killed 32 at Virginia Tech last year was one of his customers; so was the gunman who killed 5 last month at Northern Illinois University. Still, Im sure Wal-Mart has sold more weapons to killers than I have, he says. Thompson believes more responsible gun ownership is a better solution than restricting weapons sales.
