I am sharing this story because I am Adam Lanza’s mother. I am Dylan Klebold’s and Eric Harris’s mother. I am James Holmes’s mother. I am Jared Loughner’s mother. I am Seung-Hui Cho’s mother. And these boys—and their mothers—need help. In the wake of another horrific national tragedy, it’s easy to talk about guns. But it’s time to talk about mental illness.

so you are saying guns are really the issue
So people with mental illness have ZERO acesss to mental health care? You do realize they don't just appear out of thin air? Usually they have family members who know what's going on. They may not know the clinical specifics but its extremely rare someone has issues and immediate family members have no idea.

cars are regulated and taxed and such. its the human. and MILLIONS of drivers are not mentally ill yet make poor choices that kill others every single day.
we just have to stop the circular argument here. im not for totally banning guns. i am for smarter ways of regulation of guns. based on the topic of mental illness and the cartoon, it gives the impression those with mental illnesses have easier access to guns then they do health care.
we would have to have a metric of every single person who has a mental illeness and then look at the times in which they went in for a gun and compare to the times they went in for mental health care.
then we have to find the times they did both and the times they went for just one or the other. kinda impossible right?
