Debbie Dingell on Gun Control
A: And we haven't done anything. You know, we've got mental illness and law enforcement officers talk about veterans who are coming back with post traumatic stress. I wanted to write an article after they had the shootings in California about how to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill. When I went to write it, you really do realize how complicated the issue is. Because I do also want to take the stigma off it. That means if someone is postpartum depressed and has to go on an anti-depressant for a few months, is that somebody that you want to somehow never let own a gun ever again? It's not straightforward. And it will keep people from seeking the treatment that they need. So, it's complicated. But, just because it's complicated doesn't mean that we don't look at how we can solve the problem.
