Which do you think is a more important gun control or better mental health care access?
Every time theree is a mass act of violence we are told that the person(s) committing the act of violence was mentally ill or unstable and that we need to address the Second Amendment and create stricter gun legislation. Why is it that the issue of mental health is not being addressed, Obamacare was supposed to address equal access to mental health care as well as medical health care. The NRA is targeted because of the money it spends to protect gun rights, why are pharmaceutical and insurance companies seeking to avoid regulation or accountability not equally targeted for their actions?
''do you think is a more important '' Dads and Moms who give their children love and affection in growing up.Teaching them the difference between right and wrong, to respect the law in becoming an asset to society.Last but not least, practise your faith and respect your parents ( a mom and dad living together) in a family atmosphere. The need for''gun control or better mental health care '' is not a problem in a happy law abiding family.
May God bless us and guide us in these troubled times.
