Think of the Fort Hood massacre. That guy had red flags all over his psychiatric records. But political correctness dictated he not be profiled or detained even it meant putting others in danger.<quoted text>
LOL! Talk about big government! Maybe the government can tattoo everyone who acts a little iffy so that they can't get a gun.
Anyone can get a gun on the street faster than going to the store and buying one; those nuts aren't applying for a permit. They're stealing the guns from people who hoard them in their homes. Perhaps we ought to hold the actual gun owners and their manufacturers financially responsible for the carnage.
You are saying that the government should ban guns; video games and movies; what's next? history books? It's already happening in Texas. Schools? Oh, that's on the top of the list. Abortion? Oh, forgot, that's the number one. Ban gay people? You're nuts.
Think of the many people who could have been detained just long enough to determine their mental stability except political correctness dictated psychiatrists could no longer do that.
Nowadays, it's almost impossible to put someone in a hospital to be tested and treated because of political correctness. It's why we have so many mentally ill people who need treatment on the streets and untreated. And when they do snap, we blame guns.
