Such a senseless tragedy. Those poor people.

June said...

An excellent question.

Martin said...

Good question, Vicki. And I wonder how many of the grief-stricken will need mental health care themselves, now?

Each time we have a tragedy of this nature, first I weep and then I wonder why we haven't outlawed assault weapons.

Great question. What a senseless tragedy and there never seems a good time to talk about the problems ...

Or, conversely, what if a gun were as difficult to get (or afford) as mental health care?

KarenB said...

Yes.

Mamabug said...

Excellent point Vicki. There are just too many of these tragedies.

R. Burnett Baker said...

Good question. But will we, as a society, allow it to remain a rhetorical one?

For over 40 years residential psychiatric facilities have been closed, supposedly to be replaced with community-based services that are still woefully lacking or ineffective. The issue is not guns, it's care and treatment. We also have to wonder at the conditions in our society that create such rage.

Indeed, so true Vicki. Fortunately here in the U.K. we have much stricter laws about guns but we have also had our tragedies.
Friday's news is unbearable.

Absolutely. Totally agree. Even though guns are harder to get here, we still have woefully inadequate mental health care.

Victoria said...

I think mental health care needs to be even easier to get than a gun. Guns are expensive, mental health care should be free. That said, I hope this nation wakes up and enacts stricter gun control laws...not that those will stop criminals. They will always find ways to get guns.
