    Any measure to address illegal weapons and gang-related violence in a measurable, enforceable way will be something I support. I feel trying to address mental health and addiction more effectively can help with violent crime, particularly domestic violence. I would strongly support organizations that are working hard to address the social and mental health issues associated with violent crime.

    Mental illness is the most important issue that receives the least amount of attention. We need to recognize that so much of what's wrong with today's society is caused by those who lack the education and resources necessary to obtain help.

    This can be tricky. Who is to say definitively someone has a mental illness. It is not black and white all the time, but where it clearly is not gray someone who is without question mentally ill, should not have access to to arms. Those who are convicted violent felons should not have access to arms.

    I support the restrictions on the sale of firearms to the mentally ill. Careful attention needs to be given to who makes these determinations and the criteria involved.
