- I'd vote for that. ;) And I'd like to see at least a cursory evaluation of the person's current state of sanity. At least a depression inventory. But I get that that's never going to fly because it smacks of Big Brother.Jul 25, 2012
- Do you have anything on non-fatal shootings compared to the other non-fatal events like the MV accidents, medical malpractice, and so on? And does "homicide" include accidental shootings? Not arguing, just asking.
As for a depression inventory not being necessary, I think there's plenty of evidence that depression is a root cause of a lot of violence, both other- and self-directed. It's not the be all and end all, but if even a few on the edge could be eliminated, that's got to be a plus, right?Jul 25, 2012
- Yeah, I've been through the half-assed verification that came back to bite me. I'm a freelance writer. Documentation is my middle name. Okay...actually it's Marie, but I answer to pretty much anything.
I'm not trying to put you on the spot or troll for anything. You seem to be someone with some actual information beyond the standard knee-jerk emotional reaction, so I'm picking your brain. Don't feel compelled to put undue effort into answering my questions. Given time, I can probably find the information myself. You're just an obvious shortcut. LOLJul 25, 2012
- Oh, and you're right on the money with the depersonalization angle. The key is to find a way to short-circuit the gut reaction that leads to violence.Jul 25, 2012

- I'm not putting a quality judgment on guns. They simply are. What we do with them is where the quality comes into play. But the 8775 number, where did you get that? That's far lower than the 31,000 cited in the articles.Jul 28, 2012
