Instead of concentrating on trying to keep guns out of the hands of mentally ill people who roam among us untreated, we could try and do something about better treatment for the mentally ill.
Many states formerly had functioning mental health systems. There were facilities for the criminally insane. In the 1980s Ronald Reagan and like minded folks dismantled the US mental health system.

US prisons are full of mental cases. Millions of mental cases are untreated.

During my short foray into the corrections field i listened as Donald Bordenkircher, warden of the WV state prison, say this: "They take a mental case, Thorazine his @$$, declare him a behavioral case and sent him to prison".
