      I hear voices, one in particular. I'm not particularly violent, just a bit weird, with a thing for weapons and crime procedurals. This voice, who is very good at forcing me out and speaking through me, is very violent and can be dangerous _but not towards the public_. She hates me and plays on my depression, she tells me I'm useless and she can control my body, which usually hurts a lot. I'm undiagnosed. People are scared of me, I've been called a psychopath. I've been on a mental health referral list for over a year. I don't think the referral will ever come

        For once, Trump is right: (Never thought I'd say this) it is about real mental illness.
        The people who are making the gun control laws really need some help with their mental health.

                            I know this is really not the point but I lost it at the point when he says the kind with 4 wheels while the image on the screen is clearly a bus with 6/10 wheels depending on how you count them.

                                Republicans: Shootings are a mental health issue.
                                Also Republicans: Less gun control for the mentally ill.

                                                The home-based programs keep people out of institutions that Medicaid will wind up paying for if the states can't use Medicaid funding for home services. I lived in two institutions for a total of a year and a half, which cost Medicaid at least $100,000, though I'm sure it was far more. At-home services for me are billed at maybe $1,500 per month (ARMHS worker, case manager, and a PCA), but the negotiated prices bring that down to just a few hundred. Who wants to deny Medicaid funding for at-home services? Who wants to spend, what is it, like $100,000 per year for jails and prisons for the mentally ill who can be helped at home? Do the damn math, Republicans. You're costing us a fortune!

                                                        Here in Nz 2019, we have free district health board run psychiatric services manned by nurses 24/7 for emergency help, with community teams of psychiatrists, counselors, nurses and physical therapists able to be accessed for free. Our scripts are $5/3months a piece for the majority of medications, including almost all medication for mental health (with extra funding available if you cant afford that), and yet our government has just announced another $14billion nzd (apps $10billion usd) for mental health programs because we are not doing well enough as a nation. Pick up your game America.

Shouldn't it be, the vast majority of gun violence is committed by mentally ill people? Most people don't do that, if you have it in you to do that, your not stable.
