Mental health and gun control

By From page A10 | December 28, 2012

In the wake of the slaughter of 20 children and six teachers in Newtown, Conn., I applaud the call for a greater emphasis on mental health care.

Might I suggest that those who insist the availability of assault weapons is irrelevant to the tragedy or who advocate the arming of teachers to prevent such incidents be first in line to take advantage of such services? Clearly, they are in the greatest need.
