You Think Guns Is The Issue

In regards to school and other shootings stop fixating on the wrong issue. Mental health is the issue. Instead of the school trying to help the shooter they just let the mother take him out of school, therefore losing all contact with a deranged person. Parents and others in authority knew he had issues but were afraid to say anything, i.e., do their job. Like 9/11 when the agencies wouldn't talk to each other the psychiatric community won't talk to each other because of too stringent privacy statutes. Being able to talk about mental issues among the professionals is not the same as blabbing and making fun of people at drunken parties or publishing it in the newspapers. Just as certain caregivers must report suspected child abuse and anyone can anonymously, the same type of law(s) should be enacted for mental health so these people can be identified, helped and confined if necessary.
