I don't see what difference gun laws would make here, unless you are advocating giving kids guns.

I'm advocating making mental healthcare a greater priority. If the schizophrenic had gotten proper care (and if he'd had a physical medical condition such as a serious heart issue while in prison he would have gotten proper care for that) than he might not have tried to kill the children (or even be in the elevator with the kids).

I'm a realist - you won't get the support to greatly limit guns - too many folks on both sides of the isles own guns. Therefore instead of continuing to waste time on a fight you can't win, I'd rather see energy put in another option that might prevent some of this crime - proper and better access to mental health care.

There's a 40/57 split between gun owners who vote Dem/Rep - dems would not have enough of a vote to pass much real change.
