Many Canadians such as myself really believe only the police, wilderness hunters and military personnel should own guns. When my family drove down to Florida from Canada a few years ago, I was astonished to see the great number of gun factory billboard advertisements throughout the route of highway 75, along with the fast food chains of course. And a number of decades ago, at a new hallway wing with glass exhibit cases at the Chicago Institute of Arts, I noticed that there was greater fascination with the collection of weaponry than the exhibit of decorative arts collection on the other side. In my opinion, to stop this senseless bloodshed, it's a matter of either curtailing the proliferation of weaponry available in the U.S. and enacting laws which would make people feel safe, just as seatbelt laws, laws against driving while intoxicated, etc. In addition, changes are also due to the whole negative social stigma about people who require medication for blood chemical imbalances which causes a number of disorders, some less severe, eg. depression to some more severe, eg. psychosis. The psychiatric community has made tremendous strides in helping many people and need to be involved on this realm. How is it different from diabetics who require insulin to balance their blood sugar level?
