Murphy: Address Mental Health, Guns Separately

Politico (4/4, Bade) reported that “mental health does not make gun control easier to talk about.” Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PA), author of mental health legislation and who chairs the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on oversight and investigations, “says the two topics – guns and mental health – should be addressed separately.” The congressman, who is a trained psychologist, “said linking gun control to mental health does a ‘disservice’ to the bigger problem at hand: trying to get people treatment.”
