Focusing on Mental Illness


In days following the tragedy in Connecticut, most of the focus has been on firearms legislation. I submit that we would be wiser to focus more attention on how states handle the mentally ill that are prone to violence over on the homepage. It is an issue that I do not think gets nearly the attention and debate it deserves, which is a shame since such modifications by states could make a difference.
