Letter: Guns and mental health

Do you really know when someone is going to “snap”?
Is it your neighbor, tired of barking animals? Is it the veteran guarding schools, in response to gunfire that reminded of horrific days past? Is it the gun advocate, with an arsenal large enough to create a militia, who has had enough of social media? Is it when you lose a friend or loved one to a senseless killing? Years ago, my sister was gunned down and murdered; yet it is tolerance that restrains me and most people from seeking vengeance. You just don’t know what tragedy in someone’s life is going to make them snap. Do you REALLY think you know who has a mental health issue? Don’t be ignorant!!
