<quoted text>I am not arguing that most violent acts are done by the mentally ill. Then you say these acts you mentioned the people were under psychiatrist so what are you wanting to see done. The people you mentioned were minors and could not buy a gun of any type legally. They either got the guns from their parents or some how got them illegally. I have always said when a gun is sold in any way a back ground check should be required. But this still would not have probably kept the guns out of the minors in the situations you mentioned.
While I would agree that anyone that goes out and kills someone just to be killing them is mentally ill as far as I am concerned, this study says it differently.
Recent research shows the risk of violent acts committed by those with mental health diagnoses as part of the total population was just 3-5 percent.
