More dribble from our "friends" at the NYT. It shoudn't be a  public health issue, it should be civil rights issue. It is right there in faded black and white in the US Consittution, the 2nd Amendment, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. What part of "shall not be infringed" they don't seem to understand.

NYT - Gun Country
The United States continues to love and revile its hundreds of millions of firearms. Here is a look at that complicated relationship, told through the personal stories of Americans.

Broader Approach Urged to Reduce Gun Violence
By BENEDICT CAREY

The most effective way to reduce gun violence without significantly curtailing Second Amendment rights is to treat the problem as a public health issue, like smoking or drunken driving, a study finds.

You folks know this is not a random story from the NYT, this comes on the heels of the Newtown massacre.

The most effective way to reduce gun violence without significantly curtailing Second Amendment rights is to treat the problem as a public health issue, like smoking or drunken driving, rather trying to profile potential shooters, according to a report released Thursday by a panel of experts who were commissioned by the American Psychological Association to study the issue in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., massacre.

So a panel of mental health professionals released a report that gun violence should be treated as a health issue. Huh.

One of the newer interventions that the report highlights is called behavioral threat assessment, which is used at an increasing number of schools and workplaces around the country. When a student or employee openly threatens others or shows evidence of planning an attack — researching it online, buying supplies — a behavioral assessment team gets the person help immediately, whether through counseling or more intensive therapy, and monitors the progress.

On campuses, that team typically includes an administrator, a member of the mental health staff and someone from school security. When necessary, the team coordinates with the local police to have the person involuntarily hospitalized.

In the wake of mass shootings, states like Virginia and Illinois have mandated that universities assemble threat assessment teams; Virginia just passed a law to mandate such services in schools at all levels.

Yes, make gun ownership "dirty" in the eyes of the public, why do I feel like they are trying to paint people into a corner.

Let's correct that a bit.

The panel was entirely Psychologists (some have attached JDs)...not Psychiatrists (the 'other' mental health experts)

Get your kids into the shooting sports.  Donate money and/or time to organizations (like BSA) that promote shooting.  Setup shoots for young people.  Whatever it takes.

I said when the AWB part 2 fell through that they were going to treat it like smoking and go after kids.  They know they can't do anything about the previous generations and their current legislative path is limited, but if they can brainwash the upcoming generations that "Guns Are Bad" then they will have succeeded.

Does this mean Team Memberships now come with free mental health services?

So, become a member of AR15.com, buy a case of ammunition or a few PMAGS online (all legal) and you will get immediate "help"

100% correct. The pure beauty of this is when they come to Louisiana, eat crawfish, run trot lines and shoot class III firearms they can't wait to come back.

I've noticed that as well.  People who like to brag about how open minded they are usually exactly the opposite.  Any viewpoint other than their own is dismissed out of hand.

The most effective way to reduce gun violence is to arm the populace as to not become a victim or to let others become a victim of the poopulace.
