Letter: Gun, mental issues related
Re: ‘Not a gun law issue’ (Metro, May 29)
Could you cite a real-world example of violence against women being “belittled”? If any violence is “seen as a joke,” it’s violence against men, who make up the majority of victims except those of rape. Yes, many people with mental health issues don’t murder, but why does that preclude mental illness causing Elliot Rodger’s rampage? He refused to take schizophrenia drugs recommended by his therapist. That alone should have prevented him from buying guns.
