This reminds me of a movie we watched yesterday evening.  Dig.   With Thomas Jane and his daughter Harlow Jane.

The character played by Thomas Jane is a proud, vane, stupid man whose temper leads to the shooting death of his wife.

The wife commented on the film afterwards:  "How American."

It is me considered opinion that the US state should actively encourage people to learn how to kill each other without using firearms.   

With firearms, the barriers to entry to the 'killing world' are too low.  It is too easy.

Blaming mass murder on mental illness is a time-honored impulse, used by law enforcement and politicians alike. “Mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger, not the gun,” President Donald J. Trump said in 2019 in response to mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. After a teenage gunman killed 19 children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, in May, Gov. Greg Abbott said, “Anybody who shoots somebody else has a mental health challenge. Period.”

Such explanations satisfy a deep longing to understand the incomprehensible. And they appeal to common sense — how could a person who kills indiscriminately be in their right mind?

Yet America’s mass killers fit no single profile and certainly no pattern of insanity — many, if not most, had never been diagnosed with a serious psychiatric disorder. Background checks can prevent someone with a diagnosis of mental illness from acquiring a gun, but psychologists say there is a wide divide between a clinical diagnosis and the type of emotional disturbance that precedes many mass killings.

The real problem, those experts say, is that mental illness is not a useful means to predict violence. About half of all Americans will experience mental health issues at some point in their lives, and the vast majority of people with mental illness do not kill. (...)
Mr. Abbott should talk to vetted drone jockeys...


It should be noted that politicians who avoid the issue by saying that it's an illness so address that problem and not the gun problem? RINOs. Because anyone who deflects attacks on 2A rights by saying "those people" have the problem is actually laying the groundwork for Government to implement "red flag laws" that will allow the government to violate peoples' 2A rights. So yeah, supporting red flag laws means you're a RINO and hate America.
