The other question this tragedy brings up (again, unfortunately) is how do we protect ourselves from monsters like this without sacrificing some of our freedoms? Frankly, I can't think of a way, especially for a guy like this, or that shooter in Oregon last week, who just goes off out of nowhere without any prior issues or run-ins with the law or mental health. Even with rigid gun control, both of these shooters would have made it through any gun licensing hoops. Keep in mind, one of the most restrictive governments in the world, China, has suffered numerous attacks like this over the last few years. The difference being, they don't have access to guns.
