There are two common threads in the killings in Aurora, Newtown and the other mass shootings in the last two years. The first commonality is that the shooters had a mental illness of some sort.

My conclusion is that those with a mental illness should have some sort of treatment available to them and that "gun free zones" don't work.

Luckily, some years ago, two famed economists, William Landes at the University of Chicago and John Lott at Yale, conducted a massive study of multiple victim public shootings in the United States between 1977 and 1995 to see how various legal changes affected their frequency and death toll.

Landes and Lott examined many of the very policies being proposed...
