    No, the focus on mental health is never moot. Regardless of guns, mental health is a huge problem in our society.

    Why? It is the truth. Have you ever seen a sword being used by one who knows how to use it? It is amazing how quickly one can be wielded. The "body count" would be just as high or higher.

    This could be done by having exit doors without handles on the outside. They would be openable by use of a crash bar. They would pass Fire Marshall and OSHA inspections.
