"More Than Just Musing" #2
The two major issues in gun violence are reasonable gun laws and mental health. To take NRA out of the picture requires defunding its lobby - MAJOR CAMPAIGN REFORM. To resolve the mental health issue will take massive funding for research, medication, some sort of out-patient supervised care, and institutionalized care that is more than warehousing. Unfortunately, those with mental health issues, with the exception of the immediate family and a small segment of the medical and social services communities, have no lobby so it will take dedicated and conscientious legislators who put their country first, their constituents second, and their tribe never.
However, It is important to keep in mind that anything done by legislation in any state or in Washington, D.C. can be undone by legislation. The key is to create a legislative environment without tribalism and legal bribery, but with compassion, empathy, and rational debate. Hence, the Twenty Eighth Amendment to the Constitution.
