I hope you will read my latest article on Psych Central. I would love to know how others with a mental illness feel about this issue.
A quote from the article: “People will argue that it is a matter of rights. I say elected officials don’t get to have their cake and eat it, too. If Congress and the President are worried about our rights, why not start with more treatment facilities (instead of warehousing in prisons), employment protections, housing, etc. Why pick the issue of guns rights over the things that would work to give us a chance at equality in other areas?”
