Gun Violence Solution: Improve Mental Health Services for NRA Officials

As I watched the Sunday morning blatherers on the networks this morning, it became clear that the preferred solution by those who want to avoid the problem of gun violence is to give lip service to mental health improvement while continuing to allow the impeded flow of guns, ammo, and hate.

If 6,000 white male children and young adults were being murdered every year in the U. S, as is the case among African-American males, do you think we would see any hesitation in taking serious actions to restrict the availability of guns?  

Meanwhile, the NRA chiefs and the corporate gun lobby keep pushing for more guns.  Who needs their heads examined here?
