I'm advocating making mental healthcare a greater priority.

I agree. There was a clear and blatant failing in this case.


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.

I see your point but it doesn't mean we shouldn't discuss the issue of gun ownership. You could use a similar argument about many political issues: there's only not enough support until there is enough support. I'd been vocal about same-sex rights for a while even though I didn't think there was political support for it but all of a sudden there was! Maybe the same turnaround will happen with guns.
