A pro­posal to solve mass homi­cide prob­lem

The Mercury News Weekend - - OPINION -

Since there ap­pears to be no po­lit­i­cal will to ad­dress the na­tional shame of out- of- con­trol weapons of mass homi­cide, but there is some in­ter­est in pre­vent­ing the men­tally ill from ob­tain­ing guns, I have a mod­est pro­posal. The Amer­i­can Psy­chi­a­try As­so­ci­a­tion should add an­other dis­or­der to the Di­ag­nos­tic and Sta­tis­ti­cal Man­ual of Men­tal Dis­or­ders: gun ob­ses­sion, and prima fa­cie ev­i­dence of this men­tal ill­ness is the de­sire to own or hav­ing more than one firearm. There, prob­lem solved. — David Voss­brink, Sun­ny­vale
