Two high-profile politicians today called for sweeping reforms to the nation’s mental health system that would prevent individuals deemed ill from legally purchasing firearms.So if you disagree with Rendell and the gun grabbers, you're obviously irrational. Welcome to the new age of civility.
Had numerous concerns about alleged gunman Jared Lee Loughner’s mental status placed him on a list restricting his ability to buy a gun, his Jan. 8 rampage might have been prevented, said former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a Republican, and Pennsylvania Gov. Edward Rendell, a Democrat.
During a “Face the Nation” appearance, Rendell called for an “early detection system” designed to keep mentally unstable individuals from buying guns.
A “rational debate” is needed on gun-control laws, Rendell said, adding lawmakers should consider questions like whether hunters and other gun owners “need a clip with 33 bullets” like Loughner possessed.
