Reader Opinion: Well-regulated militia

A few points on the "yet another" mass school shooting with 17 lives cut short. One, as far as mental health, do you think they have mental health issues in Australia, Canada, Europe? Of course they do. But how many mass shootings do they have there? Two, I was in both the active duty military and the National Guard and am quite familiar with assault rifles (as well as machine guns, tanks, and Stinger ground-to-air missiles). In this "well-regulated Militia" our weapons and ammunition were highly controlled. Yup—feel free to read that as "gun control." Even the military has it.
