I can almost bet that after you read the slug of this story, you are already tensed up and ready for a debate about gun laws. Whatever side you take, there’s a good chance you feel strongly about it and no tragic story is going to get you to change your mind. We have certainly had a lot of tragic stories involving guns. I believe we can all agree on that. But, where we go from here is where it gets sticky.
So, here are the questions I want to ask of you. Do we need tougher gun laws? How do we keep mentally ill people from getting guns? What defines a mentally ill person? WHO decides a mentally ill person? Can family members play a role by telling police or doctors that someone is unstable? I’ve posted a couple of links before but would love to hear what you have to say.
Please keep this kind. I’m really just asking for ideas to fix the carnage. That’s all.
