Information released by the FBI on Wednesday indicates the man who killed a dozen people last week in a Navy Yard shooting in Washington was deluded. Aaron Alexis, shown in recently released video footage, believed extremely low frequency electromagnetic waves were controlling him, according to the FBI.
The NRA is right. Many mass shooters have mental problems such as those that apparently drove Aaron Alexis to start shooting at the Washington Navy Yard. But the US cannot lock up every person who struggles with such problems. It is more useful to license gun holders.
Aaron Alexis, the suspected gunman in the Washington Navy Yard mass shooting, was arrested twice for gun violations and was being treated for mental illness. He felt that the Navy didn't respect him, friends say.
