There was a time when people judged to potentially cause harm to themselves or others were committed to mental health hospitals. These facilities were closed by do-gooder liberals mostly in the 1960s.
Ironically, there is a closed hospital like this just 1.5 miles from where the shooting took place.

We need to start advocating for such hospitals to be reopened. It might help prevent tragedies like CT. Won’t stop them all of course, but anything is better than what we have now.
