Gun Control, No Treatment for Mental Illness
December 15, 2012 3 Comments
I would just like to say, crazy is crazy. Crazy doesn’t require a gun to facilitate a violent outburst, that causes loss of life. The reality is gun control legislation doesn’t cure insanity. Nor does it treat mental illness.
To rationalize that a change in the law or the constitution will stop tragedies, like we’ve seen in Connecticut, is a misconception. I know when emotions are heightened this is hard to hear, but it’s true. To think that such a change to our gun control laws would be effective at deterring the actions of the mentally ill, is a false hope, and flat wishful thinking.
