  •  I realize that gun suicides is a painful issue (0+ / 0-)

    but pro-gun advocates have suggested that we really need
    to do something about mental illness. I imagine gun suicides are a huge reality in gun-loving rural US.

    As I understand it, suicide is a mental health/medical issue yet nearly twice as many people die from gun suicides from gun homocides. Therefore gun control would seem
    to be an appropriate mental health response. But what wingnuts really mean is that we need to tear down privacy and patient confidentiality rights. I totally agree my point is not a suitable approach for a fun talk show but from a medical point of view it should not be omit in my view.
