9. "Of course, he knows what he's doing...we trained him?" Doesn't seem to be reassuring to

to others around. Multiple weapons at his disposal...former cop at age 33 usually means he was "unfit" in some way or other.

3, 2, 1 ... calls for an increased mental health program that could have done something for this guy. Facts are that those more in need of mental health care don't go even when provided or available...particularly borderlines...particularly males...because they think they are perfectly normal.

And a parent or spouse or family member attempting to get someone "help" they don't want or think they need, may put themselves in a potentially dangerous, incredibly complex, expensive chain of events that are usually a failure.

Now, back to 300 million weapons hanging out there... much more doable than paying for atrociously expensive mental health services/incarceration for everyone who needs it or whose family thinks they need it.
