A Sad Loss of Life for Anyone to Understand

Guns, Mental Illness, and Violence
We're experiencing this toxic combination in formerly safe public places we can't and shouldn't have to avoid. Unstable minds exist among us and are very difficult to monitor and treat due to our laws and professional ethics. I believe we can and should put more restrictions on gun ownership. Hunt for food if you want: it's legal. But do everything by law to restrict access to guns and ammunition so unstable individuals are checked and rechecked before they purchase guns. Families and friends also need to be cautious. If someone you love isn't reasoning well and attempts to acquire guns, please take appropriate precautions. Responsibility belongs to all of us.
