The science teacher who gunned down the superintendent of Chelsea schools and injured two other officials back in 1993 spoke to Bridge Magazine recently about his faith and gun control in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shootings.
Stephen Leith, who will be 59 in May, shot and killed Superintendent Joseph Piasecki and wounded Principal Ron Mead and teacher Phil Jones at Chelsea High School in December 1993 after an argument about inappropriate remarks Leith made about a female student, Bridge reports.
Almost 20 years later, Leith spoke with the online magazine from the prison in Carson City, where he is currently serving a life sentence.
Leith talks about how the issue of gun control is essentially out of mankind's hands.
“It’s a hard question to answer,” he tells Bridge. “My point of view is you can go ahead and control anything, and it’s not going to stop this stuff from happening. These are man-made efforts to try to correct what can’t be corrected.”
