This is an all-too-common re-run that keeps playing over and over in the US like that 24 hour "Christmas Story" marathon every year. Some mentally disturbed person falls between society's cracks despite warning sign after warning sign that had anyone actually gave enough of a shit to report to the proper authorities would have precluded this person from passing a background check. The same person who has no business owning a gun nevertheless is therefore able to easily acquire one or more of them. Said individual commits a horribly violent massacre with said guns. The gun nuts and the gun grabbers all suit up for battle and wage war in every forum. The media makes everything worse by non-stop hack reporting of every stupid thing that some idiot says and amateur sensationalist hit pieces like the incredibly stupid one our friends at the UK's Daily Mirror wrote (not to mention just about everything Fox News reports on the issue) while ignoring the real issues that contributed to the massacre - mental issues and easy availability of firearms - so that it will assuredly happen again. Rinse and repeat.
