Privacy concerns is a bi partisan issue, not just the left Kbot. My word you certainly have an obsession with liberal people being the root of all evil. Strange!
Instead of trying to navigate privacy issues, which is just about impossible in a country the size of the U.S., why not just do the simple thing and ban assault weapons, that nobody needs? Ya gotta change your gun culture down there. There's more to life than trying to emulate unrealistically heroic movie stars, like for instance safety for your children. I can't imaging living in a place where I would be afraid to send my kids to school and have to live with that fear because some bat **** crazy people with a huge egos want to play with war weapons. That just doesn't make any sense to the rest of the developed world.
I don't have an obsession with the Left on this, RA, but these laws are preventing the sharing of information which could be used to stop these types of tragedies from occurring in the first place..
Let me give you an analogy - people are driving everyday without a driver's license of insurance, and getting into accidents, sometimes killing innocent people. Using the logic of the anti-gun crowd, since this is occurring, then it follows that no one should drive:

Gun Deaths Increased in 2017, Gun Violence Archive Data Show
At least 15,549 people were killed by guns in the United States in 2017, excluding most suicides, according to data collected by Gun Violence Archive (GVA), a nonprofit organization that tracks media and law enforcement reports of shootings. The number, which marks a 3 percent increase over the previous year, offers an early indication that the recent rise in gun deaths recorded by federal agencies is continuing.

I am not a fan of guns RA, and I've said that plenty of times before, BUT, there are multiple issues here. Death by any form is tragic. Gun violence gets the most coverage simply because its a hot button issue. But do the deaths of those who died by a gun mean more than someone killed by a car? Of course not, but only the Left is advocating this "throw out the baby with the bathwater" solution, which does squat to address the underlying problem of people kill. A gun, sitting on a table by itself, does not kill anyone. Someone had to pull the trigger, and until the Left grasps the simple concept that they need to deal with the larger issue of people and how they think and do what they do, nothing is going to get fixed.
I'd like to see a national database that ALL mental health providers and social workers are required to use - as many other healthcare providers have to enter various forms of data - that simply says, Patient A has mental health issues. This database could then be accessed by local police to aid them in determining whether the individual should be provided a permit to carry. I see nothing wrong with this as we ALL have to submit to something in order to, for example, get a driving license, or take out a loan or, you name it. As a society, we are letting people with mental health issues have free access to guns with no constraints at all and this need to stop.
Will this fix all gun violence problems, most likely not, but you have to start somewhere...... and the Left won't even consider this issue.
