Gov. Deval Patrick announced a gun control bill today that targets mental illness, closes a background-check loophole at gun shows and limits gun buys to one a month.

“Mental illness is a disease that can be treated, and our communities are safer when the appropriate services and supports are available for people in need,” said Patrick in a statement. “I am encouraged by the palpable consensus in our Legislature that the time for action is now.
