SHOOTING: Tragedy reflects broken mental health system

Some blame poor gun laws for the tragic shootings in Tucson. Others blame heated political rhetoric. I would suggest that we look at our broken mental health system which allows so many – like the suspected shooter – to fall through the cracks.

We need to make sure adequate mental health care is available to all who need it, and we need laws to make sure that those who need it, receive it.
