    in 2013 were not homicidal or suicidal in 2012.

    The exceptions run to diseases such as paranoid schizophrenia -- which is notoriously difficult to diagnose in the early stages.

    It's rolling dice.

    Mental health can collapse overnight.

    And yes, this applies to everyone. You or I could wake up tomorrow morning with Major Depression. The minor strokes produce personality changes more than not. (Not just the major ischemic large-bleed strokes.)

    Bad things happen to good people.

      but assuming that we all loose our grip to that degree as a result, with or without TBI or a stroke is a giant assumption and nothing more. A What If at best.

      It's insulting. You have not walked a mile in my shoes, and I have neither killed anyone nor attempted to kill myself with a gun or anything else.

        30,000 gun deaths a year is not from criminals. It's folks like us.
