Mass Shootings

If you want to stop mass killings there are several things we need to do.  Create a better mental health system, most mass killers are mentally ill and should be in the hospital.  Young men who watch first person shooter games 12 hours a day are not normal.  Their parents knew they were not normal and so did their acquaintances.  Often they were receiving mental health treatment but on an outpatient basis.  In the case of the Sandy Hook shooter and many others, this was not enough.

Secure our borders, and deport those who overstay their visas.  Do a better job of screening those who come here particularly those who come from Islamic nations or who are Muslims.  Terrorists, like those who attacked us on 9/11, are often illegally here or overstay their visas. 

Eliminate gun free zones.  The Colorado theater shooter looked for theaters that were gun free.  Most shooting happen on school campuses because they are gun free zones.  A tiny little sign does not protect anyone.  The only thing that stops a criminal with a gun is a good person with a gun; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
