62. Absolutely

 

My OP was (hopefully) obviously sarcastic. As you say, the mental health "solution to gun violence" is just another empty NRA Talking Point. First, it would cost billions. Since I'm a Liberal and want America to take care of its people, that isn't a stopper for me, but it would be for a lot of others, including (obviously) the repigs and gun-nuts who are the very ones causing the problems.

But secondly, as you said, it would be unworkable. How could you make a gun-nut continue to take his pills to prevent his murderous impulses? How could you be sure a "talking cure" is taking? How could you be sure when some gun-nut assures a shrink that "no, I don't want to murder a buncha kids anymore!" he isn't just lying?

The whole "lets make the focus mental health" is just another diversion from the scum at the NRA, and anybody who posts it is an NRA parrot.
