It won’t help

Regardless of where you stand on the gun control issue, you have to ask yourself, are more laws, more bans, more legislation in general targeting the right people and the right problems? There needs to be a larger focus on the criminal elements within the United States, more pressure and pursuance of them.

There needs to be more efficient reporting and more effective background checking done in regards to individuals who should be flagged as mentally ill and unable to legally purchase firearms. At the base of all these discussions about firearms still stands the issue of mental health.

The sooner the government addresses it, the sooner we can start seeing possible reductions in these horrific incidents related to firearm homicides.
