Every now and then they use that narrative after these events, because it starts as a GunControlNow message at 1st but when the NRA asks for Mental Health it's to negate attention away from enforcing more gun laws. This is a state where we have as much Gun Control we can have without banning them outright. So what we are lacking is a state where we don't have resources readily available for people to use.
AND if they are available for people to use, it's either too much of an effort for people to take the opportunity due to expenses or travel, the support community being too toxic to surround yourself with, and the person choosing not to seek the help because they embrace the person they have become. We had a shooting in CA recently where a vet did shoot up a clinic built to help recovering vets, so it's not like we aren't trying.
There are plenty of Vets who can come back and use the training to help better the lives of others around them, yet we still have an issue of vets who can't readjust and had their empathy driven out. Is it a case where we need to find a way to teach people how to have empathy again?
