Free at last! The ideas that shape the world! Media is finally beginning to say what thoughtful people have understood for many years. It is not the NRA promoting freedom to support the Second Amendment but an understandable reluctance to label a very few mentally ill persons the culprit in the great majority of the mass shootings.

At last, by recognizing and beginning to work toward solutions, we Americans are on the right track. Control guns, yes. But do it intelligently, not in reaction and with solutions that punish everyone and fail to deal with the few individuals who are the problem — persons who have untreated homicidal mental illness or have fallen through the cracks in the identification and treatment process.
