These sound good....however, I am STILL trying to figure out how that would have stopped the killings. This kid did not get his guns through buying them himself. His Mother had them. I guess parents of mentally ill parents should be banned from gun owning??? Slippery slope.
If he had been in an institution where he belonged instead of out wandering the streets, this would not have happened.
That's the point.
HIPPAA prevented Adam Lanza’s mother from receiving any information regarding her sons treatment once he turned 18.
The state in which he lived, CT, does not have laws allowing for court ordered outpatient treatment and very stringent commitment standards the prevent hospitalization until harm has occurred.
Perhaps if the system didn’t make it so hard to get help, help would have been more likely to be sought and gotten.
These proposals won’t prevent future incidents 100%, but leaving things the way they are now guarantees it will happen again.
