Mental Health is very important to me and I know that it's important to consider it at an

individual and group level when discussing the need to control access to weapons in
general and guns in particular. To decide what types of guns a person has access to is
only part of the solution. To decide who gets to own a gun is the other important part of this problem.

The "debate" concerning guns gets a lot of press and attention so I'll just say that I'm
in favor of gun/ammunition controls.

What I propose to improve the mental health of individuals and groups goes far beyond guns. I'm going to provide the highlights of my ideas. If anyone wants a thorough background concerning mental health they'll have to get it elsewhere.

The history of the science of advertising shows that some people can be manipulated to
purchase a given product. In the same way, the history of the science of propaganda
shows that some people can be manipulated to behave in anti-social/non-productive ways to support some religious and political leaders who can properly be described as Cult Leaders.

Some mentally ill people wait a long time for diagnosis and treatment. But a Cult
Member has already self-identified as mentally ill and needing immediate intervention
to protect society. The law provides that these persons can be incarcerated in jails or
prisons besides the option of secure mental health facilities. It's up to individual judges
to make these decisions.

Welcome to the DSM-5, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders,
Fifth Edition. The DSM is used by psychiatrists, psychologists, other medical persons,
judges, lawyers, law enforcement personnel and anyone with an interest.

Now that's plenty to keep most people busy but I just want to add the fact that these
mentally ill Cult Members can easily be manipulated with misinformation, lies and
conspiracy theories. If we can stop that then we're ahead of the game as far as keeping
dangerous people from getting their hands on dangerous weapons that are used
to attack individuals and groups they view as enemies.

NOTE: You don't have to be a cult member to be mentally ill. But anyone who commits
any individual or group murder can be correctly defined as mentally ill. Except that
the legal term is "insane".

2. Sadly

Some of the links in your search lead to right wing propaganda. If you explore the links be aware of hidden agendas while you do it.
