"Personally, I'd like to know where the outrage is against a psychiatric community that tells us these lunatics can be rehabilitated. That has helped "inform" the creation of laws that allow a convicted murderer to re-integrate into society, where he can place a 911 call to lure volunteer firefighters to their deaths. My guess is that it's just less comfortable to say "some people can't be fixed and need to be removed from society" than it is to say "guns kill people"."
so following that reasoning, are willing to have your taxes raised, in order to house these people in institutions? I'm not against institutionalizing people, but there is an obvious cost involved here, that the "pro-gun people," (i.e. tend more toward conservative, rural, anti-Federal-government) if you will, tend to usually be against any form of tax increases
and there is no chance that your taxes, already being collected, will be re-distributed for this purchase, so it boils down to a choice:
A) restrictions on gun and ammo purchasing
B) paying more taxes to have no more limits on gun access
