This is no accusation towards you but is there a bit of a variation of a No True Scotsman fallacy in here? Those who use guns to kill loads of people must have mental issues. It's a bit late to say, "Well, we need to stop these people with mental issues getting guns because it's only people with mental issues doing the killing." ?

Sgt Joe Basilone (namesake of Camp Pendletons main road) killed lots of people. I don't think he had mental issues.

Howabout we stop people getting guns

Impossible and undesirable. I enjoy hunting and shooting trap and also uphold the right to defend my home. I also support mandatory testing and maintenance standards.
