Subject: RE: BS: AZ Congresswoman Giffords shot
Here is an idea, for what it is worth. In a school, in a doctors office, if a child shows signs of child abuse, currently they are by law required to notify social services for a follow up investigation. If a mom takes a child to the ER room and the doctor "suspects abuse", he is required to file a report with the authorities to at least check out the home and parents.

Why are we not doing that for the mentally ill or disturbed? The first act would be to remove all firearms from the home, put an NCIC lock to prevent purchase until it is checked out. And maybe just maybe some of these people would get help Would that make sense?
