This week alone, I have known of 2 veteran suicides and 2 veteran murders at the hand of another veteran. All had PTSD. Should we put a gun control law in place to curb this from happening, improve support for veterans, or find an alternate solution? I don't have the answer, I just know that too many HEROS are leaving before their time.
Failing that veteran support is very important, often veterans are wary of psychotherapy due to pride and the way that such treatments are viewed, that image needs to be changed and people who need help with mental problems need to be convinced that it is not weakness to seek that help.
We had no problem putting a gun in their hand. Maybe we shouldn't treat them like dirt when they get home. Look what they get when they get home. No job, foreclosure,,lack of mental or health care or divorce papers because wife was hooking up with someone while they were "Defending Their Country" .What a way to say Thank You

Suicide (Latin suicidium, from sui caedere, "to kill oneself"
Post traumatic Stress Disorder: (PTSD) is a mental health problem that can occur after someone goes through a traumatic event like war, assault, or disaster. http://rense.com/general95/vet-suicides.html How am I off topic again? Like usual don't look at the cause blame the gun
Making things "Illegal" only creates a black market or underground economy. Doesn't Fienstien's bill exempt members of congress? They have a such proven track record of being way more responsible than the rest of the country.
what? are you serious? Fienstien Frankenstien's bill exempts members of congress? Now, that is some serious Bull ! : ( I tell you what! voting for Obama is a sin, I don't know if I can ever be forgiven for!
yea, well it sounds about right. They turn on the fake tears and use talking points from their speech writers! It sounds like it is true. I don't put anything past what this President is capable of doing. He has fooled so many.
Apparently the 112th congress didn't do to heck of a lot passing all that much. Now the 113th, is more worried about gay this and gay that. People are freezing! I am sure some are gay. People are hurting and yet they are not left alone by the media or some wanna be film maker who has a desire to make a film so we can watch in horror what happened! This world is getting worse!
where did you look? I am checking on this myself. The adminstration is so hush hush on killing Americans abroad. Why makes you think that just because he has a nice smile, pretty good singer that he is God or something?
Regardless who it is, if they have mental issues, they should not be able to own a gun. Older Americans should also be tested as they do with drivers licenses. If they fail, they turn over their guns to family members who can pass mental evaluations.
I find it a bit ironic that we, so-called normal people don't want to be without our weapons but we are only too willing to take those weapons from those who may have a mental disability and perhaps living alone amidst a country steeped in violence.
The sad reality is which we constantly overlook it is not the criminally insane who are the only ones that kill what we call normal rational people do kill whether it's their wife, friend, or their entire family
Okay so another guy dresses up like The Joker and kills people. I will resist the urge to state how bizarre and coincidental that is and stick to the question.The media is intent on showing Americans all the LEGAL...
