Do we really want the gubmit to know everyone's mental health status?
No, but I wouldn't mind it if I said "I think my neighbor/son is crazy and might hurt somebody" and the response of the state was something more than "Well let me know if he does"

The Swiss have nearly as many guns per capita as we do, but the cost they pay in fatalities and injuries is much lower. Why?
Good question. But you could fill an encyclopedia on the cultural/demographic divide between us and the Swiss. It certainly doesn't help establish that more guns equals more death, however.
