    Too many people, cops included or in particula, know a person who is clearly mentally ill, and know, also, there is nothing they can do about it.

    When our nation gets serious, and decide that there IS something we can do about it, when our twenty year old child or student is clearly mentally ill and going down for the third time, and refusing help, then, maybe, we will see less of this.  

    We're going to have to suck it up and deal with it, and until we do, there's plenty more where this came from.

      We have no mental health system to speak of.

      Perhaps the profits from ammo sales could go to mental health services for people who are depressed.   Gun suicides are at 17K per year in this country.
