So...they want to take away the good guys guns because some nut jobs with obvious mental health issues killed some people...

That's like saying let's confiscate cars because people are being killed by drunk drivers...more people are killed by cars driven by drunks every year than mass killers !!


"The 1999 law, the first of its kind in the country, was in response to the 1998 killings of four managers at the Connecticut Lottery headquarters by a disgruntled employee with a history of psychiatric problems.

Indiana is the only other state that has such a law, passed in 2005 after an Indianapolis police officer was shot to death by a mentally ill man. California and New Jersey lawmakers are now considering similar statutes, both proposed in the wake of the killings of six people and wounding of 13 others near the University of California, Santa Barbara by a mentally ill man who had posted threatening videos on YouTube."
