Recently some fellow complained about Democrats being all in favor of more gun control to which another fellow poo-pooed that notion. My memory seems to fail me every once in a while but I cannot ever remember one of those conservative right-wing radical Republicans or for that matter any other kind of Republican ever introducing sweeping gun-control legislation. Please correct me if I am wrong, but, meanwhile, if the shoe fits then wear it!
We live in a country with over 300 million citizens and seem to be willing to circumvent the constitutional rights of those 300 million citizens because of the actions of approximately 35 mentally disturbed individuals. Maybe it is time to deal with those in our society with mental issues before we write more useless laws which will only be followed by the law abiding and not the lawless or mentally disturbed.
I am the parent of one of those with severe mental issues and our system has no method by which his mother and I could turn to to get him the help he needed; but was unwilling to seek. The problem is that without a method to deal with these individuals we have to wait until they commit some horrendous crime and then it is too late. This is a nationwide problem and not just a California problem. You cannot blame Reagan for this as there are 49 other states with the same problem.
