Daija Bullard's insight:

SAMHSA is being funded but not doing their job. SAMHSA makes it difficult for mental health patients to get treated instead of making it easier. refusing to focus on their mission SAMHSA allows a large amount of individuals to go out and kill people or themselves.

Daija Bullard's insight:

The gun situation is never going to get better if the law isn't changed and serious measures such as individual confiscation are not inacted.
