    It's very important that we preserve that freedom.

    Like what? Knuckleguards and knives?

    Nothing strange about it....This has less to do about guns, and more to do with how we deal with mental illness in this country.

    Yeah, most of these mass shooters usually were identified as individuals dealing with some type of psychological crisis and have recent documented incidences with them acting out. But these events are extremely rare already. It would just be nice to have a more solid mechanism to prevent these individuals from buying guns, or leaving them in a situation to carry out such an attack

    Not sure how this has to do with how we deal with mental illness. Unless there were signs that were ignored, what should have been handled differently in regards to mental illness?

    Not sure about this individual in particular but the Lansa (sp) character and a few others recent example were seemingly showing signs of being mentally troubled before their attacks

    Fighting to the death in order to be killed

    That is a conflicting statement. Not to mention a waste of effort.
