Isolation is issue

In the aftermath of the shootings at both UC Santa Barbara and Umpqua Community College, it was reported that prior to the shooting the perpetrators lamented that they did not have a girlfriend.

I am wondering if it is possible to focus less on gun control and more on developing profiles of shooters and brainstorming to find ways to deal with the social isolation they experience and identifying other underlying causes to their abhorrent acts.
