Investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson makes a really thought-provoking point regarding the manner in which the FBI and other law enforcement agencies identify who is a threat.
Another shooter who was on FBI (and Secret Service) radar prior to the shooting. If we can't figure out who the real risks are and monitor them when they literally cross law enforcement's path, how are we to be confident all this secret surveillance nets much?

There are a lot of resources (taxpayer funds) spent on these systems, only to have them come up short way too often.

But isn’t that the underlying point? What is the ultimate motive of these agencies, to stop threats or to stop guns?
Maybe it's not there to stop killers, but to stop political opponents. https://t.co/zPyriW4NPC

No one on the Left wants to hear this, but the best way to deal with rogue individuals with guns is by arming more responsible people.
