4. I very much suspect a toxic combination of factors.

 

Homophobia, Jihadism, psychopathy, what appear to have been massive anger issues, and more...a nasty cocktail of horrible influences going on in that asshole's head. There were so many warnings in place, warnings that were noticed by many. That these warnings were not enough to flag the guy as ineligible to possess firearms lies at the core of the problem.

Universal background checks, made against a NICS database with significantly expanded access to multiple types of records, should be a big priority. I once encouraged instituting these at the state level (and helped with the successful campaign to get them here in Oregon), but I've come around to the argument for a national-level regulation.
