Similar things were said about Cho, at Virginia Tech, or Hassan at Fort Hood.
I have no problem with disqualifying people who are threats. When people in positions of responsibility encounter specific behaviors that indicate a person poses a danger, there should be reporting requirements, and there should be repercussions for failure to report.
(Note that Penn State is facing $60M in fines plus years of NCAA sanctions for failure to report the possibility that they had a sexual predator, yet as far as I know no faculty nor staff were ever held accountable for failing to follow up concerns about Cho.)
I have a problem with requiring prospective buyers to pass a mental health screen.
There is a substantial difference between those two things.
(Edit: While I support reporting requirements, I still think we need a well-defined adjudication process, with checks and balances.)
