Deal with the mental health issue and I think you won't need to even touch on gun control, frankly. Not to mention all the other positive knock-on effects that would result from mental health care being more accessible, less stigmatized and just plain better. It's stupid that people want to go for the guns FIRST, of all things, when you've got that elephant in the room. Of course, all of this ignores a lot of important stuff like the fact that when you look at the numbers we're still far from the worst in the world about this and yet we catch undoubtedly the most flak for having something like the 2nd (seems like a lot of Tall Poppy Syndrome if you ask me). Between Eurochauvinism and good old fashioned "Fuck the USA, am I right guys? YEAH, FUCK THE USA!" crap, it's always an interesting surprise when people start demanding we DO SOMETHING about something they don't like here or abroad. Sure, we'll get right on that.
