    The second amendment makes a lot more sense than this.
    The options seem pretty clear – we would either have to go back to the involuntary commitments to asylums that we saw back in the first half of the 1900′s in which anyone who exhibits any form of mental illness is simply locked away (which is not the most desirable solution) or we allow potential victims to defend themselves from these crazy people. Berg points out that these types of violent spree killers are exceedingly rare, with less than 1 in 100,000 schizophrenics ever committing crimes such as these. Doesn’t defending ourselves from these exceedingly rare occurrences make the most sense?
    Asylums were definitely people control, not uncommonly, class, culture, or political (Soviet Union signed on) warfare, but let's not throw 2A under the vast bus or our infinite understanding.
    The founders knew the issues of of insanity in their day. They recognized the right of the people to keep and bear arms and enshrined that right.
    It isn't "we" who may "allow potential victims to defend themselves". It is "We, the people" who must defend our rights against the lunatics running the political asylum. With rights enshrined, we are supposed to be the government that can't "allow" a right.
    Americans understood the right of self-preservation as permitting a citizen to repel force by force
    when the intervention of society... may be too late to prevent an injury.
