What if this were a non-gun crime?
What if a shrink knows someone has a drinking problem and they kill someone while drunk driving? Do they try to take cars away from sober drivers? Do they restrict car sales? Does the shrink face charges for not stopping the drunk driver? I will bet there are far, far more cases like this than there are of patients who kill with guns.

Exactly what could the state have done that wouldn’t be yet another violation of constitutionally protected freedoms?
The correct response is to allow people to carry weapons to defend themselves. Just a few people with firearms in that theater would have been able to minimize the carnage, if not stop it altogether. Same for all the other mass shootings.
