Yes, one of the few appropriate actions right now seems to focus on at-risk persons. The fact that there are 0.0001% of people out there who might turn into a murdering psychopath like Lanza does not justify banning assault weapons, but it sure as hell does justify increasing gun control (i.e., personality/psychopathology testing before someone purchases a weapon like that) by a lot. Also, as jacknife said, better mental health care in general is a very good idea.
