    the reality is that all those airline and travel regulations that have been enacted have been enacted in an effort to keep people flying and making money for the airlines.  Gun control, gun regulations are equated with loss of business for weapons manufacturers and sellers.  Until enough of our political leaders from both sides of the aisle join in an effort and say that we can no longer tolerate the profits of a few at the cost of the loss of almost 40,000 lives of year, this is going to continue.  In addition, as a society we have to all step up and stop demonizing mental illness and make sure people who need help get it rather than letting them fend for themselves.  We too easily throw lives away because it hurts the bottom line.
