Problem is that dude here could have had top notch health care. But Mom ignored the problem....instead opting to stockpile weapons because Obama was gunna take 'er guns.
There is the debate worth having. How do we deal with mentally ill people that have not yet committed a crime but fit in the profile of someone that may commit a heinous act in the future?
I'm not sure she was stockpiling weapons because of Obama by the way. Connecticut experienced one of the most vile break in murder stories ever a couple of years ago. That incident inspired a lot of folks to arm themselves. She was recently divorced and I would imagine the guns gave her a sense of security. She should have locked up the weapons though. Keeping guns out in the open is blatantly irresponsible.
