1. Yet more crickets,

 

not an utterance, regarding the elephants screwing in the corner. Elimination of mental health services for anyone who needs them. This is the most noteworthy change in this debate. This country has always been heavily armed...that has not changed. Since the beginning of the US there have been "mental hospitals", sanitariums, later on "state hospitals" to care for people with mental problems. There were certainly stories of cruelty in these places, most was the best science of the time. Now there is almost no possibility of being treated without a Mercedes full of cash or having committed a crime. Parents and siblings...people who love the person...can't get help for the person until the person does something criminal, then usually not long term help. This is what has changed.
