It’s not a gun issue as much as a mental health issue. If this guy had driven a bus load of children off a cliff, it would not have been a bus issue, it would have been a mental health issue. This guy used weapons that were not his. Conn gun laws are some of the most strict in the country. This guy was denied a gun purchase a few weeks ago, existing laws work we don’t need more laws. We need a system get people like this out of society in general. If this guy didn’t get have a gun he would have found some other way. I think society needs to rethink leaving psychos like this out walking around just under medication. I think we need to put a separate roof over their heads, lock them away like they use to do. To those that want to disarm society, Australia tried that, they bought back over 500 million dollars worth of weapons, they disarmed the law abiding citizen, what happened, armed assaults went up over 400%. The shooter at the mall in Oregon last week, turned his weapon on himself when he saw a private citizen with his personal weapon angling to take him down. Citizens in Israel and Switzerland are required to be armed, they don’t have these problems, why, because people like these are cowards and they know if they pulled out a weapon, there may be 20 aimed back at them. I don’t think we need to get to that level, just examples of both ends of the issue.If guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns.
