What happened to robyn k Anderson?

Robyn K. Anderson was a senior at Columbine High School near Denver and Littleton, Colorado, and a friend of Dylan Klebold.


She made an illegal straw purchase of a rifle and two shotguns that were later used in the Columbine High School massacre. The federal and state prosecutors did not file charges against her, stating that she did not know what Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were planning and that they could not determine if she purchased the firearms from a licensed dealer.


Shortly after the Columbine High School massacre, Robyn Anderson told the House Judiciary Committee that a background check would have made her avoid buying the weapons for Klebold and Harris.


It is speculated by some that federal authorities agreed not to prosecute her provided that she testify before the House Judiciary Committee. The evidence for this is strong given what she admitted to the committee. There is also the fact that even though she purchased the weapons from a private seller, she was still breaking the law since her purchase served to hide the identity of the final possessors (Klebold and Harris). Dylan Klebold's possession of the two shotguns and the rifle was also illegal under federal law since he was under 18 at the time of the murder spree.


House bill HB 1243 was dubbed the Robyn Anderson Bill since it proposed making the bestowing of firearms on minors without parental permission a crime.


Anderson had also attended the high school prom with Klebold, three days before the massacre.
