This logic IS NOT an absolute.

Just when do our inalienable rights have to be brokered or negotiated?

You might as well say we cannot have freedom of speech until everyone agree and learn to talk nice to each other.

There is not such thing as effective health care! Not in early detection of individuals at risk, not with prescriptions often neglected to be taken regularly by the mental health patients.

According to your logic, we should not have guns until the perfect mental heath care utopia is reached--which would be never!

Finally, what about testing the mental health of our government leaders who have access to nukes, bio-weapons, tanks, cluster bombs, Drones, and so on? Maybe they should be prevented from any authority to employ them, eh? We've already seen Congress removed as a critical check and balance by executive privilege to use force anytime and anywhere.

Sheesh. People who sweat about gun control really need a sense of proportion on who really has dangerous arsenal at their disposal to kill thousands or even millions of people at the touch of a red button! That we allow so much destructive force in the hands of a few is the real madness!
