The gun control debate rises anew in the wake of another mass shooting, but mental health treatment should receive the same critical attention and maybe more.
We're past the point of reversing our nation's gun culture, but it's not too late to better handle the psychological problems often at the root of such senseless violence. We need to ask some serious questions about how we treat the mentally ill, how we pay for that care and how we change a dismissive attitude toward a problem that can be solved. We can start with our elected officials. Do something about it!
