What is the answer to people who get guns and use it for bad reasons? This writer believes that study of mental illness is the answer along with  enforcing what is in the books as far as background checks and background in general is concerned before buying a gun.  We don’t need to have additional laws that stop an honest sportsmen from owning a gun or to protect his or her homes. That is flat Communism at work.


I think Sen. Lieberman is correct on his opinion of violent of movies and video games that help push this type of behavior.  I wondered after seeing a zombie movie ‘DAWN OF THE DEAD’  and wonder what a person sees and how this effect their thinking after a while? The same with some video games that underaged people  can still buy at the stores. I will spare the movie details of what I seen in ten minutes before switching it off!

I also think that poor disdain in the home adds to fault of how a child grows up later in life. (Spare the rod and spoil the child.)  Mental illness has to be addressed but how? My state of Illinois is broke and is cutting 167 million of mental health studies from the programs. The question is how can Illinois or the United States study mental illness when we are at a cliff ready to fall off? The other is easy. That is the question Sen. Lieberman and the senate has to address.
