In spite of recent mass shootings there are people of the opinion that there is no need for tougher gun laws. In fact some are of the opinion that more people should own guns. It is evident from what we see happening that the more guns in society the more likely it is that there will be shootings.

In many of these shootings the shooter’s mental state is brought into question after the tragedy has unready unfolded, which brings me to this question – Why are guns being sold to mentally ill individuals and who should be held accountable? Too many times we say R.I.P. when it could have been avoided. I am tired of hearing after people are killed that the shooter had mental issues. A gun in the hand of a mentally ill person is a disaster waiting to happen. Stop the sale of guns to these individuals.

    I agree–if some genius could find some way to vet all prospective gun buyers to establish their mental health, that would be wonderful. However, right now the only option we’re being offered seems to be that no private citizen should have a gun. And of course it doesn’t address the fact that there will always be criminals who are willing to sell guns outside the law, so we’re still going to experience gun violence. I think it’s the heart and soul of our society that is violent because we have turned our backs on God. We don’t kill unborn babies with guns, yet this horredous violence continues unchecked every single day.

"the Beatles didn't 'ave a monopoly on love, no-one does. It doesn't belong to John Lennon, it doesn't belong to Janis, it doesn't even belong to Jesus, love belongs to all of us.
