Holding these guys responsible for their patients actions.

Will they take the easy/safe route and just have folks committed?

Always being able to blame someone might have its consequences

Not sure what HIPAA/doctor patient info states about that here

Well, as we can see, it only takes one tragedy for current laws to be changed in France.

Here? Heck, we are looking at changing the constitution due to a tragedy. Would HIPPA laws never be subject to change if we found that Lanza himself had been seen several times by a professional who did nothing to protect the public?

Just debating the point

Gun laws, more gun laws, regulations, more regulations.

Criminal bypasses all and kills legal owner for their guns. Answer? More gun laws

HIPPA doesn't get in the way of this. Mental Health professionals are what is referred to as "mandatory reporters" that is to say that they are required to break patient confidentiality if they believe a patent is an immediate danger to themselves or others.

I don't agree with stirs that we're "changing the constitution because of one tragedy" but you have no way of knowing this... if mom hadn't had guns, he could have gotten them from somewhere else.
