Helping mentally ill a more effective means to avoid tragedy


The Norman Transcript

NORMAN — Editor, The Transcript:

The shootings over recent years have been tragic. Everyone wants to do something about guns. But there are two common denominators: Mental illness and guns. Not one person has mentioned helping the mentally ill. Sad to say, some people are a danger to themselves and others. They need help and need to be evaluated.

Maybe they should be in some kind of housing so they will not harm themselves or others.
