You can blame gun owners or blame the mentally ill... [View all]

The thing is you can realistically stop neither.

Do background checks really prevent these things? I'm not sure.

Like taxes this is the price we pay for living in a free society.

So no we don't lock up people with mental illnesses unless they are an imminent danger to themselves or others. Nor do we prevent the "law abiding citizen" from getting a gun.
