    Perhaps the sort of psychological screening mandatory in other developed countries would help, though as I understand it theres resistance in some quarters in the US to even known mentally impaired being denied access to firearms

    Which wouldn't necessarily help and could be wrongly used to misdiagnose and keep people from having a weapon who don't have any such mental issues.

    Moderator's Warning:
    North Carolina man charged in shooting death of 3 Muslim students [W:43, 109]Jesus Christ the trolling in this thread...

    Folks, this is a *BN* thread about a specific *BN* story. Going forward people better start talking VERY SPECIFICALLY AND NARROWLY about this actual story...not Fox, Not America, not Athiests in general, etc...or action is going to be taken. If you want to make a broader political point and tie this to some other political agenda of yours then start a new thread in an appropriate sectoin doing it.

    What I've seen, is people like this will simply beat the person who they are pissed at to death or do something else to them. They also could easily find a mental health professional to sign off on them.

    since we can't let family and friends of the deceased stone him to death I hope he gets the death penalty

    Its much much harder to kill someone in this manner. I suspect all three victims would have been alive if he had not been armed

    While true, we are not going to get rid of guns in this country, legal ownership by the citizens. And trying to prevent people from getting it based on suspicions of possible mental problems will only lead to more issues. This is not about gun rights, no matter how much you wish to twist it that way. This is an isolated incident about anger issues. Possibly mental health problems that were hidden, possibly that simply developed after the person first got the gun. Honestly, I don't even know if the person had the gun legally or not.
