19. Navy Yard shooter had a "secret" security clearance.

It had been updated fairly recently. Oh, and he was being treated by the VA for mental illness that included hearing voices.

His clearance didn't get pulled. And he was not flagged in NICS. His family knew he had mental health issues. He'd been arrested previously for incidents involving the use of a firearm. So pretty much it would seem to me that nobody cared about Mr. Alexis one little bit until he took a shotgun to the Navy Yard and opened fire.

These spree shooters all have displayed serious mental health issues. It's not the healthy and law abiding population that is the problem here.
