Conservative hero Ronald Reagan and his Omnibus bill. I'm just gonna copypasta this all day:

Court ordered mandatory psychological exam, then involuntary institutionalisation.

Statistically, based on population, these types of incidents are actually fewer and very rare. The reason it "seems" more prominent is the instant news, media and internet blasting of such events.
 
2012-12-17 01:49:32 PM  
Well funded, national healthcare (including comprehensive mental health care), as well as the removal of the stigmas associated with those who seek out mental health care when they need it, could have likely prevented this tragedy. But let's keep derping about gun control.

Except as snocone points out, this only works if people have faith in the decider. If the insane have the right to refuse treatment and the people oppose the right of the state to lock away the innocent for being insane then deinstitutionalization happens and now these people are outside.

So now the question becomes: Would this guy's mother have had her kid committed if the opportunity had existed, or did her crazy cone just have a different flavoured swirl in it?

Yeah--this is partially true. The ease of our access to guns, high powered and extremely efficient ones, is also part of that problem. More laws? Probably not. An all out ban on import or production of those guns would surely help. We can talk the whole "Meth causes problems, we should make it illegal so people stop doing it" is a malarkey argument--considering guns are neither mentally or physically addictive.

And frankly, our current course allowed for what happened Friday. Anyone with instability who ever slips through a mental health system is allowed to buy weapons. That's a massive risk we are taking there.

Symptoms of mental health issues then were the marijuana arrests of today. The slightest 'infractions' would put you in front of a court. Society doesn't even seem to notice wackjobs these days until they shoot up a school... and even then it isn't the wackjob's fault. *points fingers* It was somebody or something else's fault.

Society needs to take off the kid gloves and clean up some of the trash.

If these toddlers had been allowed to carry guns like the real, free Americans, they wouldn't have been shot.

A guy who tried this kind of shooting in a Philadelphia public school wouldn't make it past the second set of double doors.

You're never going to get all the guns away from the people who have no business having the power to kill at a distance, and you're never going to identify all the violently crazy early enough to keep them from acting on it. SO, given that it is relatively easy to get a gun and given that it is relatively had to get someone institutionalized for violent insanity (until they actually kill someone) perhaps it's not a matter off either well funded national healthcare (including comprehensive mental healthcare) and Removing the stigma associated with using mental healthcare services, OR some common sense gun control, but rather both? Particularly if the latter is informed by the former?

Characterizing what's being seriously discussed regarding gun control right now as Derpery across the board is failing to consider that a lot of the suggestions out there are reasonable by any sense, and itself verges on Derp.

Can anyone really say now that the Gun Show loophole should remain open?
