Why is it that gun control is the go-to solution? As we begin to address the bullying situation in this country, why not mandate psych-social tests for staff and students along with the already mandated immunization, eye and ear tests? There are no more long-term care facilities for mental health patients.There is crisis-stabilization which usually lasts 2-3 weeks, then back to society. Families try desperately to care for their loved ones without moving them into group homes. Group homes are not secure environments, patients can just wander off, after all they are not in jail. Government funding was cut which closed the long-term hospital that was in Bainbridge, Ga. In this latest tragedy, the shooter did not buy the weapons, and if we've learned anything, it is that desperate people do desperate things. I am saddened and devastated by the unnecessary loss of life and pray that the families find some sense of comfort they so will need to endure.
