I am going to go even further. Adjudicated is also potentially dangerous, depending on what is regarded as mental illness.
I believe that Pro 2Am rights people have really missed it on this one. The event was particularly tragic, but in the attempts of some to sound “reasonable” or divert attention from the gun to the person (which is not an incorrect response in se) we are forgetting that “mental illness” was the standing accusation for nearly all enemies of the state behind the iron curtain.
As we progress toward a socialist utopia, I fear we could be hoisted by our own petard quite easily, with the statists pointing to our own insistence on protecting us from crazy people, and picking us off one by one with a complicit or easily duped media being happy to point out just how much of a nutjob the latest target was.

Then there is this whole armed police officer (SRO) on campus thing. Government schools are already training grounds for police state/jail compliance, with their dull cinder block construction, few or no windows, cameras everywhere, jail nomenclature (wings are often called “blocks” or “pods”) and so forth. Add to this uniformed armed officers stalking the halls and telling the students they are watching them on camera*, and generally being the presence of Authority in all the students lives, perhaps the only one, and you have a recipe for acceptance of cradle to jail to grave totalitarianism.

IMHO it is far better to simply allow concealed carry by the Adults who are already there.

*this was related to me by relative students of an elementary school with a School Resource Officer.

Agreed. Those adjudicated or committed are already reported to the NCIC, by the way.
