Request for Feedback on gun Control

The Mineola Patch published this article requesting readers to give their ideas about increased gun control laws. Here is what I contributed:
We do not need more gun control laws.  Most of the guns used in most of the attacks in recent years were bought legally and in compliance with all laws.  This indicates that the entire traditional approach of gun control is wrong, and more layers of the same types of laws will not help.
As has been the case so often recently, I am sure that someone will be found to say that the Sikh temple shooter was having mental health issues for some time, but that this knowledge slipped through the cracks of the system.  So why not try some outside-the-box thinking and approach this as a mental health issue?
