Santa Barbara Asswipe

You might be aware that Asswipe knifed three people to death before he got into his Daddy-provided Beemer and went hunting other humans. He ran down at least two bicyclists with his car.

But oh, if you read the gun-control loving blogs, none of this would have apparently happened if Asswipe didn't buy a gun. Which assumes facts not in evidence, of course.

Some of them are currently somewhat distracted by Asswipe's participation in the "men's rights movement", but don't worry: They'll circle back to the idea that This Harmless Snowflake Would Have Done Nothing Without a Gun, soon enough.

...but, also to be honest, he likely would have done somewhat less damage without a firearm. But, neither side would endorse seeking the truth in the middle ground, that the person was the killer and the weapons his tool. How do we identity and defuse these individuals?

A thought, are these mass killers perhaps our version of suicide bombers? Filled with rage and having no target endorsed by society, they turn inward and explode. And, if they are, does the increase of this mode of violence in our society send a message about what is simmering under the lid of the melting pot?

We are not the only nation that has spree-killers. Having said that, focusing on the weaponry used is akin to painting the outside of a derelict building.

Absolutely, we aren't. And the derelict building is a very good analogy for our individuals with mental problems. Both are a danger to society, but the building is more easily addressed via the current laws.

That being said, having no realistic means to address the mental health/gun issue because of the destruction of the mental health system and the neutering of any laws restricting in some small way sales/ownership to those with mental health issues is a powder-keg. I'm not in favor of confiscating guns "from anyone for any reason", but there has to be a middle ground that addresses this.
