The first thing a person says when an act like what happened in Connecticut happens is “gun control,” which in my personal opinion has never worked. Mental health has helped a lot of people.
The reason I say that it has never worked is that before gun control, how many schools were entered to destroy precious lives? If you feel gun control works, then why is it gangs and cartels can get their hands on almost any weapon they want, including, I might add, the 50-caliber that can kill a mile away?
When you have a nation of homeless people who are in drastic need of mental health help and you have people like the one causing such problems as last week’s: it’s not gun control we need. It’s mental health clinics to help people like this.
If gangs and cartels can get guns any time of the year, and states such as Connecticut have some of the strongest gun laws, then why do people think gun control is going to do anything when they can drive to another state to pick up the ammo they need to cause such destruction?
Have you noticed all the other people who have been making threats out there against schools, churches and colleges? This should speak for itself on what is needed: more mental health, not gun control.
