I think the order of discussion should be:

1. Proliferation and indiscriminate prescribing of psychotropic drugs for every conceivable problem
2. Lack of mental health services
3. Lack of school campaigns to deal with adolescent bullying (all while the media is the biggest bully of all)
4. Refusal to aggressively deal with gangs
5. Examination of promotion of violence by the media

When and only when these issues have been addressed should we consider the possibility of violating the Second Amendment.
