  •  Mental Health is definitely an important issue to (5+ / 0-)

    address, BUT if mentally ill people did not have the super-easy access to cheap/high capacity firearms the results would be very different (as they are in the UK & Japan).  

    It is disgusting how the NRA (and their apologists among us) always try to blame it on a deranged person and it can never be because of the easy access to guns (without any meaningful regulations).

    Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.

      there are too many taboos and stigmas on limiting the mentall ill's 'rights' to assault weapons that must be addressed
