Every high profile mass media event shooting was done by a shooter getting mental health treatment. Mental health treatment seems to cause mass shootings followed by suicide.

Hey Malloy, just because you’re a commie doesn’t necessarily mean that people are going to jump for you.

Gun-grabbers have been dismantling mental health facilities for years. Obamacare doesn’t fix this.

Commemorating Connecticut's first anniversary of tougher unconstitutional gun laws...

Liberal Democratic jackass braying the mindless party line (and planting a big fat wet kiss on 0bama's backside in the process - a twofer). Freedom in CT is apparently not considered to be relevant by either the politicians or the subjects who elected them.

Expanded mental illness treatment means separating the mentally ill from the rest of us. Drugging people up is what’s causing these things. Years ago you’d hear in hushed tones that ‘so and so’ was taken to a hospital. It’s an unfortunate part of life, but better that than mass shootings that kill the innocent.

NRA probably has no official position on Omamacare - focus is on RKBA. Period.

Here’s a challenge to Malloy.

Stop being a total dumbass.

I agree, bring back the mental hospitals and stop letting these people out on the streets with medication like nothing is wrong. Homosexuality used to be classified as a mental disorder, you see how that turned out.

Coming soon: Hoplophilia to be a newly identified mental disorder. Once identified, the sufferer will be placed on the list of persons prohibited from owning firearms.

...he also challenged the Boy Scouts to accept gay Scoutmasters, told the oil companies to build solar power plants and spouted several other non sequiturs promoting the left-wing agenda.

It still is - having a society bullied into accepting a wrong, doesn't make the wrong, right.

Rather, it makes the society weak - as we are (as a society).

You have to give him something realistic.

We have to stop being passive and be more aggresive with liberals. We have been silent for too long and they are devouring our country and culture. How have we gotten to the point that government and media collude with propaganda to sway the minds of our children? The only way it will stop is if we put our foot down. A prison sentence for Harry Reid would be a good start, after all it is “racist” to send Jesse Jackson Jr. to jail for buying gifts with campaign money and not ole white Harry, right? (Hint, hint) We can play the same game with these America haters:)

People who think the delivery of socialized medicine is a cure for mental illness are themselves mentally ill. There is NO cure.

What moron thinks the “ACA” is going to expand opportunities for people to receive mental health treatment?

The only real cure is Jesus and the good news of the Gospel.

Almost all school shootings have taken place since Congress passed The Community Mental Health Act of 1963 (CMHA), which began the process of deinstitutionalization of the mentally ill.

We are spending plenty of money. We're not spending it wisely.

Unfortunately there are far too many mentally ill people who are a danger to themselves and others wandering the streets.

I'd be more in favor of spending money on mandatory drug testing for politicians.

First attempt to connect Obamacare to background checks. We will soon find out how “private” our medical records are.

Well I did say “total”. If he was only a partial dumbass, he’d meet the challenge.

Is this guy Malloy retarded? Mentally handicapped?

If mental health treatment is a pressing issue, why not introduce a Mental Health Bill and dispense with the 98% of the outrageously expensive crap in the (C)ACA?
If necessary, make it another welfare problem (added to the 300+ existing welfare programs.)
At least we'll know where the waste and fraud are.
