Unless guns DO go away completely, this is still going to happen. And even if they do go away completely, it would probably still happen. Maybe they could do less damage per incident, but people would still die. It seems like in this particular case, having asylums back would have made a bigger difference. But the hardest thing for us to accept is that, even if there were no guns, and even if there were places to lock up crazy people, this would still happen. People would still be killed. Human beings are problem-solvers, and we don't like to hear that we can't fix a problem completely, but I'm afraid that's something we all have to accept...
