The recent influx in mass shootings across the country has created feelings of fear, anxiety and anger in the population.
One of the major debates inspired by Sandy Hook is how we should be handling mental health disease. People are wondering what sort of approach we need to take as a group that will make us safer and healthier.
People are uncertain of what should be done to ensure that we can retain our rights and freedoms but still be aware of who might be at a higher risk to cause major harm to others.
There is also the question of who is responsible when tragedies like Sandy Hook occur. Some blame these events of a lack of security, others on a need for more widespread mental health evaluations by psychiatrists. Others still hold the government accountable for not making it more difficult for people who are not mentally sound to access dangerous weaponry.
Whoever is to blame, it is still important to make sure that we can spot someone who has become dangerously unwell or to interfere before the illness gets to that point.
