The reason why these crazed mass shooters are able to commit their acts is not because we need more laws. It is because we need to enforce the ones we already have. The Waffle House shooter should never have been walking free, he should have been committed to a mental institution:
[Redacted] said he wanted to meet with US President Donald Trump and told a Secret Service officer at the northeast entrance that he was a "sovereign citizen" who had a "right to inspect the grounds," according to a Metropolitan Police Department incident report dated July 7, 2017.
He was charged with unlawful entry, an arrest report states, but the charges were dismissed after he completed community service.
Authorities in Tazewell County, Illinois, later returned the seized weapons to [Redacted]'s father, who (according to other articles promised to keep them from him, but) then gave them back to his son, police said.
In May 2016, [Redacted] experienced a delusional episode telling first responders that he believed pop star Taylor Swift was stalking him, according to a police report.
[Redacted]'s family also told police he had made comments about killing himself.
