Do you believe that curbing this school attack trend is more a matter of understanding/addressing the psychological condition you describe in the article, or equally or more to do with gun control?

Thanks for reply; I agree. As follow-up then, what could be the next steps on the path to identifying, understanding, and helping these kids?

Given that we can't rely on shielding information from potential "higher-threshold" attackers, and it's not accurate to put a label of mental illness on many, if not most, of them, do you think it's a reasonable approach to put the honus on each local community to be mindful and proactive about people around them that seem more quiet, and less social, than the average person (which seems to be one of the few common threads among attackers)?
