Trending in the Aftermath of Mass Killings, Gun Control and Increased Mental Health Treatment, Thanks for Nothing Governor Mills.
“Violence is not a simple problem, nor is the remedy a single, simple measure. The proposals in this bill are not extreme or unusual, or a cookie cutter version of another’s state’s laws. They are practical, common-sense measures that are Maine-made and true to our culture and our longstanding traditions while meeting today’s needs. They represent meaningful progress, without trampling on anybody’s rights, and they will better protect public safety,” said Governor Janet Mills.
“I hope, Mills explained, “that lawmakers will approach these proposals with an open mind, reflecting not only upon what they believe is best but on what those who disagree with them believe is best as well. For the sake of the communities, individuals, and families now suffering immeasurable pain, and for the sake of our state, we will act.”
Among the suggested measures to deal with gun violence in response to the Lewiston, Maine shooting, Governor Mills sends to the legislature the following: Establish an Injury and Violence Prevention Program at the Maine CDC: Strengthen Maine’s Mental Health System: Prohibit Dangerous People from Possessing Weapons.
All of that without the Governor ever even getting close to figuring out why Robert Card went on a one-man shooting spree. Talk about irresponsible and dangerous. We still don’t know the name of Robert Card’s treating psychiatrist, nor the psychiatric cocktail of mind-altering drugs Robert Card was prescribed, if any. We do know he was “treated” by the Military and referred to Four Winds Psychiatric Hospital for more mental health “treatment.” We also know the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) placed Blackbox suicide and homicidal warnings on an array of mental health drugs tied to what is pushed throughout the country as “treatment.”
