Apparently, the person who committed the mass shooting doesn't have a criminal record outside of speeding tickets. If this is true, I don't know how we could've restricted his gun rights. We could say anyone who had ptsd can't have a gun, but that will result in people not getting any help and probably cause more mass shootings.
the OP links to a cnn page, where theres articles related to this situation.
articles like :
Neighbor said shooter's mother "lived in fear" (police had been called to home a few times)
Hes even had mental health specialists with them out to the house to talk to him before.
They cleared him (he wasnt crazy enough for them to do anything about it, I guess).
I think there was something about domestic violence too... cant find atm.
So its not true he just had speeding tickets.
His family + police knew he wasnt "quite" right in the head, yet he still got to keep his gun.
"We could say anyone who had ptsd can't have a gun, but that will result in people not getting any help and probably cause more mass shootings."
That makes alot of sense actually imo.

People who have had mental break downs before, probably shouldnt own a gun.
Even if its been years without them haveing another break down.
