Or how about we address the stem cause? Reinsate involuntary committment of the mentally ill - stop the use of Prozac and such drugs - that were NEVER tested on the young and that have proven side effects of suicide and violence - and that nearly 100%A of these mass shooters were on? (Many of whom the families have tried, in vain, to get help for.)

these two actions - no involuntary committent of the mentally ill (Like saying you can’t arrest a drunk driver without their permission) and the wide use of dangerous drugs with a proven track record of death and destruction?

One could wonder; “Have these two action been a deliberate plan to foist the acceptance of gun-control on a clueless public?”

How many people remember, or are old enough to, who’s responsible for turning the mentally ill loose on the public, who spurred the closing of the mental hospitals and invountary committment, turning them out on the street without proper treatment with a ‘these people have thier rights too’ rationale?

Spead it wide and clear. Maybe SOME news person or politician will be honest enough to say it outloud.

Of all the reasons for Jimmy C.’s legacy of shame, this is the worst.

Yeah, because that worked soooo well before, and was NEVER abused by those in the system, nor misapplied by those who decided who was committed (and for how long).

There are reasons it was ended.
