    since domestic violence does underlie this event.  The question is if Stidham had ever undergone treatment for either violent behavior or for addiction.  I assume he has never been arrested for either since drug arrests and domestic violence are red flags on firearm registration forms.
    I would guess, if this case is investigated in depth by competent journalists, they will find an entire network of enablers making sure that Stidham flies under the radar and continued to fly under the radar.
    Another issue would be the availability of mental health care in his area.  Even if he had wanted help (purely hypothetical here) would he have been able to find it.
    There are so many issues here.....
