Letter: Faulty thinking in gun debate

When did the U.S. declare open season on children in their classrooms? This must stop.

For the GOP and Mr. McCarthy to continue to say it's a mental health problem and not a gun problem, they are right. When a shooter takes the lives of children and the adults who care for them with assault weapons, the person clearly has a mental health problem.

On the other hand, don't we also have a mental health problem when our elected leaders refuse to accept there's a gun problem and refuse to ban assault weapons and not even try to stop this madness?
