My anger has waned, I am left with an overwhelming sadness and frustration.
I am also highly motivated to find common ground and discover/recognize a solution that will prevent further atrocities.
At the same time I do recognize that I am firmly entrenched in my 2nd amendment beliefs. Generally I pride myself on being able to see both sides of an issue, but I'm struggling here.
I do believe better mental health care is what is needed. I just don't see how to implement a mental health program that would eliminate these acts altogether. How to force those that need mental health care when they don't want it and they to this point have committed no crimes.
