Once again all the signs will be there a mentally disturbed individual who needed help ignored by our mental health system because there is not enough money to treat all those who need it and because bleeding heart liberals say we can not lock these type of dangerous individuals up. Instead we have to protect our homes our schools our churches and work places from them as they aimlessly walk around in a mental stupor ready to go off at any minute.
This is why we had state run mental hospitals to lock these individuals up so they would get proper treatment so they would take there medication so that people would be there when they go off the deep end. You rarely ever heard or saw what you see today on the news when mentally ill where confined to mental health hospitals. You rarely ever saw homeless vagrants they would have been mental health patients kept at a state hospital where they got treatment they needed instead of homeless and drifting getting into danger and being killed or committing crimes. .
No one wants to be locked up but it is something that must be done when some one presents a danger to a community. Yes there where some badly run places yes there was abuse. But living on the street is better? Yes some live now in group homes but many with dangerous conditions there are many for profit group homes that are poorly run as well there is abuse and there have been deaths from fires when these group homes caught fire and had no sprinklers or proper fire alarm system. But there are also well run ones as well. Group homes are one answer but again no beds are available when there needed.
The weapons are not the issue. Do you realize the single biggest crime and murder scene in the world 9-11 was carried out with Box Cutters . Not one hand gun involved there was not even one hand gun that killed any of the almost hundred victims at the Oklahoma City government building bombing .
In 1927 in Bath Michigan a mad man blew up a grade school with dynamite no hand gun involved.
