  •  Mental breakdowns are only part (6+ / 0-)

    of the issue. Certainly we want to try and stop things like Newtown and Aurora and the others from happening... or limit their horror if we can't stop it completely... but there is also the issue of domestic violence that turns deadly because of guns in the house, the issue of inner city gang violence, suicides, etc. So, though I don't think you meant it this way, there are more than just the mentally ill that we need to worry about.

    But in answer to your last question, no, there really isn't a list. Patient privacy laws have become stricter... and for good reason... keeping such lists and further stigmatizing people with a particular variety of illness is a serious problem while at the same time perhaps necessary. So how exactly it gets done is of critical importance.
