I remember this kid showing this gun to everyone in the breezeway and then putting it back into his backpack. He got caught with it in 7th period art class after he got busted throwing map colors at the teacher. Upon denying he even had map colors she searched his bag, and found his gun. I wasn't in the class, but this is what others explained happened. Though he wasn't involved, his older brother was gang affiliated, and thats where he had gotten the gun come to find out. Though later he ended up following in his footsteps, but you would never know it by talking to him. The guy was a people person and very funny actually, and one heck of an athlete on into high school. Once I was in highschool it was growing abundantly clear that almost anything you wanted on the illegal market was readily availible. Even the preppiest of kids would suprise you at the activities they were into or getting in trouble for. Point is the older you get I think the more things like this present themselves if you have a grasp on what your looking for, and even if your not looking for it, and if you actually did ask the question, well you catch my drift.

If the guy in CT was looking for a place to belong I think he could find it no matter how awkward. Criminals don't care about his mental stability or social awkwardness, all they would see is dollar signs. I think the movie Higher Learning depicts how a socially awkward person can team up with the most umlikliest of people. "Remmy" the charactor in the movie who is portrayed to be a social misfit from an middle class suburbia family finds his sense of belonging in a racist cult. The chances aren't that great for these type of things, but not out of the realm of possibility.
Criminals care about not getting caught. They don't generally do business in a such a way that some random unknown guy can just spontaneously stroll up to them and buy a gun.
