Didn't say anyone had the right to steal.
My point was he would step on a dollar to pick up a penny.

If it wasn't for people like Tom Clift, there wouldn't be any thievery in this world, would there?

Working with Tom in the past this does not surprise me. I'm more shocked he's still operating. The bottom line is he was inexperienced at running a business. He would micro manage the smallest detail. You couldn't do anything without running it by him first. But never seen working at growing the business.

He only had maybe a dozen employees at the peek and the customers list you could count on one hand. Certainly not flowing hundreds of thousands a month. What are we talking a loss of $10-20k per month?

With about two supply house accounts. It should not take much time to review the supplier statements daily. Then maybe he'll find tools and materials that were inappropriately charged also. Reviewing and paying bills does not take a few hours a month for this size company. You could do it without a computer. Then you take all that to the accountant when your done. No, not a bookkeeper. Also an accountant does not need your credit cards. A properly functioning business needs to know all the numbers, plan and adjust. Not I lost 30K this month so I'll charge more.

The article does not even go into the bad debts owed to NEC Electric.

Like myself many people are bitter about working with NEC Electric. Tom took advantage of a bad economy and way underpaid his staff with only promises of increases. What comes around goes around. You get what you pay for. The ones that are left are the thieves, low skilled, and slackers. I would bet that bookkeeper paycheck was rock bottom low.

How about not providing visitors to get a US passport, or revoking the passport and returning them home if mental illness is discovered?
Or finding and returning individuals that over stay their passport by years or are here illegally.
But in this case uncle moneybags provided $923 a month disability to Eduardo Sencion while he helped out at the family store.

Federal gun laws prohibit gun ownership by:
Those adjudicated as mental defectives or incompetents or those committed to any mental institution and currently containing a dangerous mental illness.
Non-US citizens
Undocumented Immigrants

It was also against the law to modify one of his weapons to make it fully automatic.

His family was just as responsible.
They knew he had guns.
They knew the man was sick and wanted to hurt people.
The shooter asked his family to take his weapons before this happened.

In this case like others the shooter was seeking mental help in the days before with no avail.

If the senator wants to do something start with the current law breakers. Work on the mental care system.

Another feel good law that would not have made a difference in the past. The victims families paraded around with the original intention of banning certain rifles and magazines. Now to still call it a victory they want to add background checks.

How has the Gun-Free School Zone act of 1990 made us safer? Seems that in the 100 years before that law there were about 4 shootings of 3 or more at a school. After that law was passed I counted 15 school shootings of 3 or more.

It has been used in the past to have a hand gun registration lead to banning and collection.
Chicago required the registration of all firearms but did not allow handguns to be registered, which had the effect of outlawing their possession, unless they were grandfathered in by being registered before April 16, 1982. Additionally, several Chicago suburbs had enacted outright prohibitions on handgun possession.
Illinois has a state gun license "FOID" card need to buy guns anywhere. You need to register guns with the city and any transfers with the county. With certain 1 time and reoccurring fees. Gun possession is permitted only inside a dwelling, not in a garage or on the outside grounds of the property. Only one gun at a time may be kept in a usable state. Of course the usual assault weapon and bullet capacity limits. But Chicago is still called the murder capital.
