American legally acquires weapons despite mental illness
Last Tuesday, 23-year Dayvon Maurice Greene, a graduate student, tried to light a fire in the basement of the building where he lived. When his roommates tried to stop him, the young man opened fire at them from a pistol, subsequently shooting himself.
As a result of the shooting incident, one young man was killed and another was wounded.
According to the newspaper, citing a source in the local police, Green was diagnosed mentally ill, presumably suffering from schizophrenia. However, this did not stop him from legally acquiring a weapon and even spending some time on the campus police squad.
