Blaec Lammers is currently sitting in jail after allegedly plotting to kill moviegoers who would have attended a ‘Breaking Dawn: Part 2′ screening on November 18 in Bolivar, Mo. Now, his mom is speaking out on the Nov. 21 episode of ‘Good Morning America,’ revealing why she turned her son in to authorities.

Blaec Lammers’ mother Tricia Lammers opened up to Good Morning America on Nov. 21, defending her decision to turn her son in to authorities after she felt he was planning to kill moviegoers at a Breaking Dawn Part 2 screening. “I love my community just as much as I love my son,” she said, and, “I respect their right to be safe.”

While Tricia did turn her son in, she does manage to defend him as well. “My son does suffer from mental illness. We have been battling this since the fall of 2008. I think any mom at any time would blame herself that she did something wrong.”

Holding back tears, she continued, “I hope my son gets the help that he needs.”

Blaec appeared in court yesterday and will undergo a mental health evaluation. His next court appearance is scheduled for January 23.

Blaec was originally charged with first-degree assault, making a terroristic threat and armed criminal action after he allegedly bought assault rifles and more than 400 rounds of ammunition, alarming his mother, who quickly took action. Blaec admits he bought firearms with the intention of shooting up the movie theater and then continuing at a nearby Walmart. Court documents also state that the deranged man had been practicing using the weapons at a nearby shooting range.

How do YOU feel, HollywoodLifers? Should he be punished?

He should have a lot of help. Thanks to her it was left as threat instead of another heartbreak. Maybe he will think twice about taking his medication this time around. So he doesn’t hurt others nor himself.

she is a mom who cares, she doesnt have to defend herself for doing the right thing, any mom know u still let your child know they cant do that if its wrong. I dont care how old your child is u still make sure they are doing the right thing and if u fine out they are doing something wrong that will harm others then u need to do the right thing, it might hurt and they will tell u they hate u but at the end they know u are right.
