For example, following the mass shootings in Parkland, Fla., NRA leaders, House Speaker Paul Ryan and President Trump all insisted that the problem was “mental illness.” However, in depth analyses indicate that the vast majority of mass shootings are not committed by the diagnosable mentally ill. Moreover, only a few percent of all violent acts in our country are committed by individuals who have been diagnosed with a mental illness, and the percentage of crimes they commit with a gun is lower than the national average for persons not diagnosed with mental illness. Thus, even if we could cure all mental illness — a worthy goal — violent crimes would only be reduced by a few percent.While mass shootings capture the headlines, they represent a small percentage of firearm deaths in America. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2015, there were over 33,000 firearm deaths in America. Of these deaths, about 480 were attributed to mass shootings. For years, the NRA has prevented the CDC from doing research into the causes of our very high rates of firearm deaths. It’s time to elect lawmakers who will confront the NRA and allow research into this very serious problem. Moreover, such lawmakers could enact sensible gun laws supported by the majority of Americans, such as banning assault rifles and adopting universal background checks.Don SteinerNiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationPuccioni’s two goals help Niskayuna boys’ soccer top Shaker, remain perfect Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion The National Rifle Association (NRA) and many Republican law makers refuse to acknowledge that the pervasiveness and availability of guns in our country play a major role in our high rate of firearm deaths.
