... and its role in the latest tragedy?
How many of you have ever had mental health issues? Did you think your received competent, compassionate care? I know I sure didn't. Have you ever had to pay for Psych medications? I have, and all I can say is THANK GOODNESS I have health insurance. Had I be paying out of pocket, for 2 medications for 1 month it was OVER $500! Diseases like schizophrenia usually require 3-5 different medications daily and WAY more health care visits to get regulated/under control. And, that is IF they can even get under control, all things considered.
Anyhow, the media seems to be missing the proverbial boat when it comes to another big reason, IMHO, tragedies like this continue to happen. I am NOT saying they could be completely avoided, just lessened tremendously.
OP, I for one, understand your line of questioning. The shooting has put a spotlight on mental health.

Some are saying that legally speaking, there wasn't anything that could have stopped it.
This whole tragedy is full of "could have, would have, should have".
